Small things can make all the difference when it comes to style. A tie bar is one of them, however, as with all formal accessories, it is important to know how they should be worn. A tie bar is suitable for all sorts of occasions but more often you will find them at formal and corporate events where a little extra effort will catch the eye. So if you want to find out what to do and what not to do with a tie bar read on for our tips.   

Pay close attention to size  

A tie bar should be small enough to be discreet which means it shouldn’t be wider than the tie itself. Aim for ¾ of the width of your tie   

Be subtle with your tie bar  

The point of a tie bar is as an accessory that puts the finishing touch to what you are wearing. It shouldn’t be the centre of attention, so avoid anything that looks loud.  

Position your tie bar correctly  

Position is very important, make sure you place your tie bar between the third and fourth button of your shirt. It should also be fastened to your tie and shirt. It should be attached firmly in position to avoid it falling at an angle which is a definite no no.
