Blue Plate dress, Ross
Andrade silk tie, thrifted
Awkward pose #1017, c/o me
While unearthing my long-neglected craft project, I came across this tie. Sadly, the silk seems to be deteriorating, but I figure I can eke some use out of it as a belt. I think it would look best against a solid dress, but I don't own one of those. :\ So, I think this is a nice addition to my pattern-mixing explorations. Like a necklace, a tie worn as a belt is a nice way to add an understated dose of pattern fun to an outfit.
Here are some other great ways to wear a tie as a belt ...
Doubled-up stripes and a pin? :) Beautiful.
Too bad wearing the tie-as-a-belt doesn't bestow the power to dance like Fred Astaire ...
Belted under a blazer - got to try this sometime!
Such a pretty, restrained use of color on a slouchily casual outfit.
