Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Style...

St. Patrick's Day is almost upon us again. Monday 17th March will see celebrations taking place the world over.

Did you know though that this year is the last time until 2160 that St. Patrick's Day will fall on Holy Week. So it may be worth dressing up properly this time!

What better way to celebrate (other than drinking Guinness of course) than to drape one of our Ireland Flag Silk Ties around your neck for the festivities?

You'll be the talk of the town... for all the right reasons.

Women choosing to wear ties

It is official. Gone are the days when neckties were the monopoly of office-working males. Not only do fashionista males now choose to wear ties for everyday use and night on the town, women are getting in on the act too.

Yes, an increasingly popular trend is women wearing ties. Celebrities like Gwen Stefani (pictured) and Avril Lavigne are spearheading the look.

The most popular look with women is to wear a skinny tie with a fitted shirt/blouse. Though girls the world over are finding ties in various widths and patterns to finish off their outfits.

And let's face it, judging by some of the frankly disgusting ties we have seen on men over the years, it is probably about time ladies got to work in choosing stylish designs to wear.

Noriko Wada at has the right idea!

In menswear, skinny ties are in style

Here's the big headline for style-conscious men in 2008: Buy a skinnier tie.

In the world of men's fashion, the shrinking of the tie from a 33/4-inch width to around 31/4 inches counts as monumental news.

That would never do in women's fashion, where changes can be measured in volumes -- say, from sleek to swinging -- in the course of a season or two.

Menswear moves at a much slower pace. Five years is the norm; a fast-track shift could happen in three.

Ari Hoffman, chief executive of Gant, says it's become an industry joke that a seemingly small detail such as tie width or lapel style could be considered a drastic shift; but it's also true.

The attention to narrower ties and slimmer lapels comes as the industry continues to embrace dressier looks, Hoffman says.
