One of the first bold accessory I purchased was the floral tie in this photo. This was no ordinary purchase. I knew this tie will draw in attention, both good and bad at my work place. It was my first step towards not settling for ordinary, expressing my unique sense of style. Soon after it was established at my office that I was "stylish", which worked out nicely I suppose. To celebrate Spring, I'd like to feature this tie in 3 simple attainable looks. Use the Simple Style Manual to help you understand how each item needs to fit.
In this getup, I coordinated the accessories subtly. Pink lapel flower and white with black border pocket square all link back to the multi-color floral tie. What's important is to not match the color of the blazer, allowing the accessories to pop.
