Britney and Gwen Work The Necktie Look -- Will You?

12/06/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Women wearing neckties comes back in style every few years — Diane Keaton in Annie Hall, Shannen Doherty in Beverly Hills 90210 — and that time seems to have come once again. Britney Spears broke out her tie (and her all satin-outfit) while clubbing with new BFF Paris Hilton in Las Vegas, while Gwen Stefani wore hers to a promotional event for her new record in Canada. We’ve also spotted Janet Jackson, Fergie and Jennifer Love Hewitt rocking ties lately, too. Tell us: Will you wear ties? Do you think they’re sophisticated or silly?

I like the way Gwen wears the tie-straight and clean. I wear ties sometimes because they are powerful and have a classy feel to them. There is nothing wrong with women wearing ties. I think Gwen would wear it better if she x-ed the hair in this picture and rocked the tie with her signature rockabilly up-do to toughen it up a bit.

I think it is up to the individual to choose weather or not they look good or bad i don’t mind them these girls are pop stars and are a suppose to start new fashions.

Bad enough that Britney looks like she just got bit by a rabid squirrel near her trailor. But then Gwen has the same look too?? Poor Brit Brit. At least unlike oger face, Britney’s hair looks to be her nartural. (lets not kid ourselves, both are bald: ohh so sexy) But both are fugly if you ask me. But for whatever reason, I feel bad for Brit, but just wanna pee myself with laughter when I look at Gwen!!!!

Women can wear the shirt and tie but it works best if kept smart and feminine. ie wear a plain pink or white nice collared shirt with a properly knotted tie and match it with a nice skirt and high heels. I sometimes wear the look to work or out shopping.

i love the tie look and totally agree with joanna from 3/11.tied tight and shirt form fitting with nice skirt,its a very sexy and powerful look. thats why britneys look and career took off like crazy.i am a guy who loves this look on women.too bad more girls dont like this.its pretty hot.gwen looked great last night on idol.its just that interesting combo of women wearing a mans look,but yet if done right skyrockets the sexuality of it.yet its weird when men wear dresses,it just doesnt look good at all. now why is that? maybe because women have worn the tie look for decades,yes check back even to the 30s and we are more accustomed to it,or perhaps theres just more men who like to see this look than women who like to see men in womens clothes.who knows,i just think its hot.joanna,if you read this,are you single?:)

I recently wore a tie to a wedding reception because it looks great with my suit. The only problem was guys grabbing my tie and making it crooked and loose. My collar also got twisted up.

I think that if you do it right, it looks very chique. It can also look like you’re a waitress at a restraunt. You just have to be careful about the way you wear it, just like everything else :)
