That important job interview, a big client meeting, the formal blind date; each of these situations requires you to look smart, make an impression and feel confident. So how can you do this without going over the top with your look?

Whilst you’ve been lead to believe that a smart black tie is the basis for all formal wear accessories, times have changed. More and more people have come round to the idea of breaking from tradition and opting for something more befitting of their personality. You can achieve this with something as simple as a polka dot neck tie.

From a bold, coloured bow tie to an eye catching polka dot style, there are endless options available when it comes to working a striking neck wear accessory. DQT believes that individual style is of great importance and therefore offers a wide variety of designs and colours, for any situation or look you are trying to achieve.

You could take inspiration from some popular TV and movie characters. For example, the 11th Doctor Who looked twee but quirky with his unusual bow tie (don’t worry, you can leave the fez out) or you could try out a bold look like Jim Carey in The Mask, with a striking black and white, polka dot ties.

Polka dots also lend themselves to a vintage look, reminiscent of the 1950s when clothing became louder in colour and pushed the limits with style. You could try your hand at embodying this vintage feel with this simple accessory, whilst maintaining professionalism with a sharp suit and shoes. Finish off with some bright trouser braces, to complete the look.

When it comes to creating a look to complement your individual style, choose a fashion accessory that feels right – push the boundaries with your guise and you’ll make a strong impression on those that matter.

Carrying Your Supplies

Have you ever purchased a duffle bag that is made of cloth, thinking that it would hold all of your sports equipment or other supplies, only to find that it ripped or deteriorated after a short time? A stylish and sturdy leather duffel bag is an option if you are looking for something to last a little longer. These bags come in various colors, although most are brown or black. There are also different sizes depending on why you need the bag.

When looking for a leather duffel bag, you want to find one that has plenty of room. These bags might not give as much as one that is cloth, but they often last much longer. Leather bags are ideal for taking to the office because you can store files and books in them. The handles on the bag are sturdy, allowing you to carry the bag and all of your other items without fearing the bag will break. If you work in an environment where you are constantly needing to store items in a bag, then this would be the perfect solution. This kind of bag is also easy to wipe off if something happens to get on the surface.
