to cultivate more classiness and fabulousness in daily life!
Day 8: Tie A Tie
Now, I probably just lost a few of you on this one. Why, you’re saying, would a woman ever need to know how to tie a tie? What’s classy about that? Well, I have two reasons. First and foremost, I like wearing ties myself and a little bit of androgyny is definitely fabulous! Second, there is something nostalgic and classy about a woman who can tie a tie for someone else. Come on! How many old movies have you seen where the heroine reaches her arms around her beau to tie his tie? How amazingly classy did it look? I rest my case.
For a helpful guide to tying my favorite knot — the four-in-hand, or schoolboy knot — watch American fashion designer Alexander Olch, who recently created an amazing collection of men’s accessories for Colette, show a model how to tie his “Little Guy Necktie.”
