Hollywood and Copenhagen Fashion Week Embrace the Tie
Looking to amp up an outfit with little to no effort? It may well be time to embrace the tie. The Grammy Awards on Sunday night saw the red carpet flush with this fashion staple. Boygenius, the group comprised of Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, and Julien Baker, led the way, matching in their off-white suits, black ties, and pink carnations. Billie Eilish also joined the trend, wearing a Barbie-tribute Chrome Hearts bomber jacket, shirt, and a black tie. They are not alone in reaching for this accessory to spice up their outfits for the awards season.
Greta Gerwig and Bella Ramsey have also taken a liking to the tie. Greta Gerwig wore a black tie gingham blazer and PVC frilled skirt to the AFI Awards Luncheon, while Bella Ramsey sported a turquoise tie and Thom Browne suit at the Annual Critics Choice Awards. It seems that the suited-and-booted bug has bitten Hollywood.
Ties are not confined to the red carpet. Over Copenhagen Fashion Week, ties made a statement on the runways and the streets alike. Mfpen showcased disheveled, pinstriped bankers wearing ties with safety pins, adding a touch of Miley Cyrus Grammys vibe to their looks. Forza Collective, another Copenhagen-based label, paired steel-grey ties with white, short-sleeved shirts layered under translucent PVC t-shirts.
Ties as Power Symbols
The tie has become a symbol of power not only in Hollywood and Copenhagen but also among luxury brands. Chanel featured silk ties with floral prints during their Métiers d’art show, while Dior incorporated ties in their Pre-Fall look book, worn with slightly loosened shirts. Even Jenna Lyons and Ayo Edebiri have jumped on the tie trend, with Lyon sporting one at the Jacquemus show and Edebiri rocking a full Bottega Veneta outfit, complete with a shiny burgundy tie, as she prepared for Saturday Night Live.
The Tie: A Detail That Makes a Statement
According to fashion experts, a tie adds a layer of sophistication to an outfit. The knot of the tie can convey different messages, from a loose knot indicating a relaxed look to a tight and formal knot signaling a more formal attire. Whether it’s for a casual or professional look, the tie is becoming a go-to accessory for those looking to make a statement.
So, if you want to amp up your outfit effortlessly, consider embracing the tie trend. It’s not just for the boys anymore.
