The tie scarf: an attempt

Last summer I came across a photo of this man wearing his tie differently and wanted to try it but it was way to hot. This week I looked through the very few ties I had available and matched one up with a striped shirt and with plaid jeans.
It was harder than I thought it would be to copy the look so that the widest part of the tie would show. I paired all this with a pullover navy sweater but a jacket might be better. Success or fail? I welcome your thoughts and suggestions.

    How cool are you for trying something adventurous, quirky and different. Love this.I think your pattern mixing is key to making it work.

    I think it looks really good! Both with sweater and (imagining) a jacket.

  • smittie replied 2 years ago

    LOVE it, Joy. I think the look is more modern with the sweater.
    Not sure about with the blouse alone.
    Oh I need to try this.

    Thank you for all your encouraging comments. I tried to describe how I did this but it didn't make much sense, so will try to take photos to illustrate.
