How to tie a tie!

Happy Wednesday!

Not everyone knows a to tie a Windsor Knot or any kind of tie. There are several ways to knot your tie. However, you can never go wrong with the classic Windsor Knot. As a woman or a man, I believe we should know the proper way to tie a tie. For a special occasion, work or simply wanting to look our best, a tie is like a bow on a gift. It's the final touch to an outfit

So, here's are step-by-step(and written) instructions on how to tie a Windsor Knot, which is the most popular way to tie a tie.

  • 1. Start with the wide end of the tie on the right and the small end on the left. The tip of the small end should rest slightly above your belly-button (this will vary depending on your height and the length & thickness of your tie). Only move the active (wide) end.
  • 2. Wide end over the small end to the left.
  • 3. Up into the neck loop from underneath.
  • 4. Down to the left.
  • 5. Around the back of the small end to the right.
  • 6. Up to the center, towards neck loop.
  • 7. Through the neck loop and down to the right.
  • 8. Across the front to the left.
  • 9. Up into the neck loop from underneath.
  • 10. Down through the loop you've just created in the front.
  • 11. Tighten the knot by pulling down on the wide end. Slide the knot up & adjust.
