You know what’s cooler than wearing a tie? going tie-less–having your collar shirt buttoned-up to the very top. It’s 2014–wearing a necktie is so dull and serious. Loosen up a bit, going tie-less adds a fun and youthful taste to your wardrobe. This look is hot right now, “one of this season’s biggest trends” said GQ. It’s called the “Air Tie.”
If you’re planning on rocking the air tie, I would recommend to complement your fasten shirt with a tailored suit for a neat, refined look or dress down with a sports coat and denims combination. Just make sure there is breathing room between your neck and shirt collar, you don’t want it to look like you’re being strangled.
NBA players seem to have a strong fondness for this trend too. They’ve been spotted on numerous occasions sporting the trendy look for gamedays. Check out these notable basketball stars best impression of the “Air Tie” below.
