Out and about in London, Kate Moss sported a silk neck tie with her Isabel Marant Tacy Suede Printed Calf Hair Leather Boots ($1500), leopard print trousers, and velvet blazer. The DIY accessory is a welcome alternative to a scarf and gives off a cool, slightly undone, Keith Richards vibe.

Tip: Swap your cocktail dress for a simple black suit
The only thing better than a sharply dressed man is a sharply dressed 16-year-old girl.

Tip: Polish your evening ensemble with a top hat
