So you’re a Levi’s and Converse kind of guy. That doesn’t mean you can’t switch things up for special occasions (ie: New Year’s Eve). Here, four ways to give your style a dapper upgrade.
1. A bowtie. Skip anything with crests or cartoony animals on it. Go for something with an unexpected twist, like this Ernest Alexander number — it’ll make you look more downtown academic than uptown prep.
2. Updated tie. This skinny tweed tie by Brooklyn-based duo The Hill-Side keeps you looking stylish without feeling like you’re working too hard.
