When to Rock It: Casual Fridays; Stylish Saturdays
Style: The Twist

When to Rock It: Roman holiday; nonchalant night out
Style: The Inversion
How: Tie your tie so that the thin end hangs noticeably longer. (Warning: Only try this one if you’ve already got some serious street cred. Otherwise, it just looks like you got dressed in the dark.)
