One of the looks featured at the recent NAACP Night of Fashion was one SCDD has been excited about ever since chic reader R.B. Clark mentioned she rocked it at her college’s homecoming: neckties for ladies! Worn the right way (think Janelle Monae, not Colonel Sanders) it’s definitely one to try. It’s a play on menswear, but the key is to balance the look with feminine touches. So don’t bust out a vest, jacket, pocket watch, monocle and spats. The tie should have a slim silhuoette (no fat knots at your neck!), and can be worn casually with a v-neck or cardigan sweater and denim or with a swingy skirt and button down – not a tailored business suit.
