Stripes and neck ties...

Style Theory: Sometimes you just need one item to give your look an update, today it is a necktie I bought mine for £5 from Topshop. It looks great with a slouchy look, perks up a boring shirt, adds a pop of colour to a white, boho top and adds interest to plain tee/vest top. From silk scarves that give your look a sleek and sophisticated edge to cotton neckties that look cute and edgy, the neck tie of the perfect quick style solution and a reasonable and easy Friday 'Fashion Lift'. Here are a few more looks to give you lots of ideas on how to style the Necktie and check out loads of more options for  fab scarves and neckties here and here...

Are you already on board with the necktie look, how do you wear it or is this one little micro (re) trend that you will be getting back on board with? As always I would to hear your thoughts and comments until next time, Fran xxx
