Ties: Rockabilly and Punk Styles

You don’t have to be sporting a tux to be decked out in a tie in the rockabilly world. Punk ties are all the rage, and it isn’t just men who are wearing them!

At first, they were strictly men’s accessory, but today ladies also wear them. Also, they used to be made only for special occasions, but diversity of models made them convenient for everyday happenings. Although sometimes it’s very complicated to tie a tie, it is very popular decorative fashion detail among the people who like to keep their style impressive and original.

The story of the tie is no older than four centuries. In 1635 it was worn by Croatian soldiers. At the beginning, it was just a scarf tied around the neck. Those soldiers were in the service of the French king, who was delighted with this unusual fashion bit. Actually, the whole Europe was soon very delighted with it. England saw its first tie when Charles II came back from exile. In the speed of light it has became an important style determinant.


Now, punk ties are adorable and attractive, but they can also be frustrating. Many people find tying the ties very complicated. Basically, it is not all that hard and it only takes practice and experience. There are several ways to tie a necktie and several kinds of the knots. When it comes to choosing the type of the knot, there are some rules. For example – when you have a shirt with a narrow collar, you should tie a narrowed knot, while wider collars require the so called Windsor knot. But the options are numerous and here are some of them:

Punk and rockabilly culture is also very open for awesome details like neckties. Punk ties have a special meaning. Beside the aesthetic effect, which is usually badass, there’s the social meaning. Since ties are often worn in offices and since they are a kind of symbol of uniformity, punk rock lovers actually wear them ironically. Punk, as the area of high creativity and originality, combines the craziest ties with all the possible clothing options. Punk girls often combine ties with awesome skirts like these or even with some swell and elegant dresses like the ones from this collection. All the fashion rules are now broken.
