A new year means new (and great) things are coming. Surprisingly, the best part about the new year for me is not looking forward to the next year, but looking back over the past year at all of the goals I've reached and seeing how much life has changed.
The older we get, the less meaning the word change has because it becomes a constant in our lives. Change is a scary word for most people, especially when it comes to changing locations, jobs or lifestyles; but more often than not, change means progress. Major change isn't the only type of change that can happen in our lives. Changing our Netflix-binge habits, or eating habits are the small steps we can take to becoming the type of person we hope to be some day.
When Ties.com asked me to pick out pieces that highlight my style and what it says about me, my wardrobe change for the new year is all I had in mind. If you've followed CSG for a while, you'll have seen that bow ties have an unfair advantage in my wardrobe. Well this year I decided to dive into the world of skinny ties, starting with this knit black tie with a white finish for style points. The wooden tie bar is an example of a concept I've been practicing lately: throwing something different into every look to make it your own (its not a bad conversation starter, either). Looking back at the summer, floral stole my heart and I'm guilty of donning it on a 70 degree Christmas day.
Since the season of giving is still among us, I thought I'd share a few combinations that might inspire you.
