A narrow fabric band of varying length worn around the neck and tied in a knot or bow close to the throat.
Although generally worn by males while dressing up, it is slowly becoming acceptable to wear casually.
When girls where ties, they are subjected to torture of trying to be "unique" or an Avril Lavigne
poser. Neither of which is necessarily true, some wear them just because it sounds fun (they do make great accesories!).
"I wore a tie today because I felt like it, but everyone called me an Avril Lavigne poser
. That's not true at all! If anything, she simply opened the door for non-necklace neck-decor for females; just because I wear one doesn't make me a poser!"
