Your tie will often be the focus of your outfit and it's a relatively inexpensive way to ring the changes in your work wear. Here are my observations of what's hot and what's "knot" (pardon the pun!) in tie trends this summer:
Knit & grenadine ties - though they've been around for awhile now I'd go so far as saying they've almost entered the realms of being a classic. A knit tie is perfect for your smart/casual outfits or to add a point of difference to classic tailoring. Or choose silk grenadine for a more formal take on it.
Brown - sneaking in with a seventies vibe, I've noticed a rise of brown in town. It works well in a textured or patterned tie like paisley or check and makes an excellent companion to a pale blue shirt and a navy jacket.
