Ditch The Necklace: Tycoon Neckwear’s Madelyn Somers Tells Us Why Bow Ties Are The Hottest Accessories (For Women!)
Madelyn Somers, founder of Tycoon, the women's bow tie line that has been featured on the pages of Vogue Spain and Refinery29, is promoting a whole different kind of neckwear. "It takes a certain type of woman to be able to wear a bow tie and pull it off because it’s not just an accessory, it’s a statement that promotes confidence, individuality, equality, and style, of course," she tells us. Tycoon's bow ties aren't just your grandfather's hand-me-downs, though. Rather, they're fashioned from vintage men's neck ties, and then adorned with feminine detailing. Somers believes it's that femininity that sets her product apart from the masses: "There are bow ties that are made for men that women can buy and then there are Tycoon ties: each one has one-of-a-kind tassels, chains, buttons, or rosettes, which may be a little less intimidating for women who want to dress somewhat feminine, while still having that menswear flare.” (more…)

How to Wear: Oxfords Without Looking Like a Prep School Boy
As menswear continues to be a dominant trend in womenswear (ahem, boyfriend jeans and cardigans), one of our favorite ways to embrace the guys' style is with a smart pair of sharp oxford shoes. Yup, the lace-up shoes that scores of young boys were forced to wear to school everyday with their uniform. They're in style now and can look really cute with the right outfit. We've been eyeing the Elsbeth leather oxfords at J. Crew. The key to pulling off a pair of oxfords is dressing them up with really feminine clothing. Think a leg-baring mini, a ruffled top, a girly saddle bag and some flashy bangles. This way, you'll have a hint of the trendy menswear styling without looking overly boyish. Depending on your profession, this casual cool look could work for the office, or you could save it for a daytime first date: J. Crew Elsbeth Leather Oxford, $225 Lark & Wolff Pixie Skirt, $58 3.1 Phillip Lim Silk Blouse, $146 The SAK Juniper Saddle Bag, $78.95 Lauren Crystal Station Bangles, $48 There you have it.
