Hi I'm Kate Leser, the makeover expert. I'm here in Raleigh, North Carolina at the Art of Style. Today's topic is can a man wear a tie with a casual shirt? To get a more modern, sophisticated casual look, you can add a tie to this ensemble to really up your game. If done properly, adding a tie to a casual look can really create some interest and give you a little more style. So but there are a few things that you need to know when trying to add a tie to say a casual shirt. So right now I have this buttoned down shirt. Now you can have a plaid shirt, a print shirt, or just a solid shirt but the key piece here is to make sure your tie is more casual. So what I've added here is a knit tie. Now a knit, this is a houndstooth knit. And so the knit tie says a little more casual. It is better than a silk tie, a pin dot tie, a foulard, ivy league tie that you would typically wear with a suit. This is knit. So this makes a great look, it's a casual style yet it's a little more sophisticated. Now another way that you can add a tie to your ensemble is by adding a bow tie. Now there are a lot of guys out there that really like the bow ties. So this look would be casual yet a little more modern. So the key to having a tie, wearing a tie with a casual outfit is to make sure that the tie itself is a little more casual, so if you wear it with your dress suit, I would advise you not to wear it with your casual shirt.
