We asked: Ladies, would you wear a Necktie?
You said: No to Neckties, with a 59-41 split in votes.
Style tip? Though the majority of you voted against neckties for women, a significant minority (41%) were open to co-opting this traditionally masculine accessory. An easy way of trying on this trend? A skinny black necktie, a la garconne, worn with a crisp white shirt and a creamy camel coat. Finish off the look with a pair of roomy wool trousers and a pair of killer heels. Another option? Try a grey jersey tie, a nod to the sweatshirt/sweatpant trend that swept stores this summer. Or do as the men do and use your tie to add a bit of pattern to your look - the season’s 70s inspired tartan plaids feel very au courant.
Next question: Midi Length Skirts, so named because they hit at mid-calf, are completely on trend, as per the Fall/Winter 2010 runway shows. But they’re also a somewhat difficult silhouette to pull off, given that they visually cut your leg at mid-calf. But what do you think? Tell us, would you wear midi length skirts?
