With much of the world returning to work IRL, the corporate look is having a moment, be it in the form of pinstripe suits, pencil skirts, waistcoats, or most trendy right now, neckties. And when it comes to the workwear aesthetic, there's nowhere we trust more than J.Crew, and no one we'd rather garner inspo from than the brand's head designer Olympia Gayot. Luckily, the TikTok-favorite designer just posted her two go-to ways to wear a necktie on Instagram.
To celebrate the launch of J.Crew's recent follow-up collaboration with the French shirt brand Marie Marot, Gayot posted a slideshow to her page showcasing not just the collection, but also two easy ways to turn a boring menswear tie into the centerpiece of an outfit. From a casual, Saint Laurent–inspired option to the more refined pussy bow, see how Gayot is styling 2022's easiest and chicest accessory below.
