When it comes to wedding outfits, men’s suits risk feeling a bit, well, work-y and as if everyone is cut from the same cloth.
But fear not, there’s an easy way to stand out from the crowd or add your own sense of style: a new jazzy tie.
Not only is it a low-key way to breathe new life into your outfit, it’s also great to have on-hand so you can tie it around your head on the dance floor later on – if that’s your sort of thing.
Here are 10 jazzy ties to wear to all those weddings you have in your diary this summer.
Moss London Tie With Botanical Floral Prints, Asos, £20
This floral number is giving us summer garden party vibes – and is perfect for a fun, relaxed look. The orange, pink and purple hues will go beautifully with a navy or light grey suit. And at 20 quid, it’s a bargain.
Contrast Elephant Print Silk Tie, Salvatore Ferragamo, Selfridges, £140
You have to look quite closely to realise the pattern on this tie is a herd of cream elephants, which is what we love about it. It’s also available in red and cream.
Men’s Tan ‘Cheetah’ Narrow Silk Tie, Paul Smith, £100
Animal print continues to be a big trend this season, so this tie is the perfect addition to any wedding outfit. It’s also available in black and navy, if you want something more subtle.
Red Sausage Dog Tie, Burton, £8 (Was £10)
The cheapest and arguably most cheerful on this list. Who doesn’t love a sausage dog? Better IRL, but we’ll settle for this printed tie to get our dog fix.
Jacquard Slim Tie, Zara, £19.99
OK, so this is a bit out-there. But we’re loving the tropical vibes anyway. Perfect to brighten up a beach wedding outfit.
Wallflower Woven Silk Tie, Liberty, £90
British institution Liberty is known for its gorgeous floral prints, and this red and blue number is no exception. Available exclusively online.
Navy Green Blue Print Tie, Saville Row, £15 (Was £50)
Any tie with a cheese plant on it deserves pride of place in our tie round-up. It has fine wool interlining to ensure it keeps its shape after every wear. And at £15, you can’t go wrong.
Fancy Silk Tie, Skopes, £16.95
Keeping on the botanical theme, this pink and lilac number is slightly softer than the other floral prints. It would look great with a light grey suit.
Slim Cut Equestrian Knight Print Silk Tie, Burberry, £140
This slim-cut silk tie is patterned with two-tone equestrian knights. It’s also available in other colours, including light blue with dark blue knights, pink with purple knights, and pastel green with blue knights.
Tiger of Sweden Trigon Silk Tie, John Lewis, £89
We’re going big on the animal print with this list: but this time with mini tigers. The earthy tone of this tie makes it something you could wear year-round, which might help you justify the price tag. Wear with yellow socks to add a bit of pizzazz to your outfit.
