How to Keep Your Neck Tie From Slipping


Depending on your social circle and work environment, you may wear a necktie all the time --- or almost never at all. Regardless of how often you don the tie, you should always wear it properly. A sloppy-looking necktie can make you look messy, too. Prevent your tie from slipping to keep your appearance streamlined.

  • Make sure that the knot is tightened and straight. With most knots, such as the four-in-hand knot, the full Windsor and half Windsor, you need to slide the knot into place securely at your collar and adjust it so it looks symmetrical.

  • Use a tie accessory to keep the tie straight, such as a tie clip, which is a visible accessory that clips the tie to the shirt. The tie tack and tie chain are also visible tie accessories that stylishly keep a tie in place.

  • Check your necktie knot throughout the day to resecure it, especially if you're using a tie with a slippery material, such as silk. Materials with less friction are more likely to slide out of place.

Tips & Warnings

  • A multitude of other innovative tie accessories exist online, many of which claim to easily and securely keep your necktie in place while remaining invisible.
