SS15 Look Book: All tied up

As a corporate drone, one must wear a tie. But, that doesn't mean it has to be boring! I like to look the part when at work, and judging by my previous workwear posts, I hope you'll agree. Still, what's dressing if you're not dressing up?

I had a selection of ties, grouped together from random shopping excursions, presents etc. and after a clear out, I was ready to add to the collection from this season's selection.

Primark is good for lots of things (it's also bad for some things,) and ties are one of them. They're never over £3 and are often in-keeping with key menswear trends and there buyers are increasingly happy to make a real style statement. I'm lucky, living in Manchester with the country's biggest Primark (it's massive...) so the selection is always top-notch.

"Florals, for spring, ground breaking."

Floral ties, all Primark

These ties offer an instant boost to a plain smart shirt and look great with a white shirt under a v-neck jumper.

Metallic texture ties, all Primark

These metallic ties are nice for a subtle statement because their sheen and texture doesn't let me down in the style stakes. The knitted ties also have a square end, a great modern touch amongst a sea of silk traditional neck ties.
