Some outfits, whether for work or social occasions, look a lot better with a tie. A straight tie, worn beneath the shirt collar and tied at the throat, adds professionalism and refinement to a suit, jacket, or shirt and pants. If you prefer a simple knot, I recommend starting with the complete Windsor.
Here are the best ways to tie knots for all occasions:
The Windsor knot, with its polished triangular design, is an excellent choice for job interviews, presentations, and social engagements. This knot looks great with a spread-collar shirt because of its broad appearance.
1. Raise the shirt collar and wrap the tie around the neck, so the broad end is on the right side and reaches approximately 12 inches below the small end, to begin tying the full Windsor knot.
2. Pass the large section of the tie over the narrow section.
3. Drag the broad end up and down through the neck hole.
4. With the wrong side facing out, pass the broad end beneath and to the right of the narrow section.
5. Cross the wide section over and to the left of the small part, with the proper side facing out.
6. Bring the broad end up through the neck hole.
7. Pass it through the front loop when pulling it down.
8. Keeping the hanging components in place using one hand holding the dangling components, slowly move the knot up towards the collar with the other until secure, and then lower the collar.

Begin the technique by elevating the shirt collar, as with the complete Windsor knot. Wrap the tie over your neck so that the broad end is on the right and the narrow end would be about 12 inches below the wide end.

2. Cross the large section behind the small section, so that the incorrect side is looking out.
3. Bring the broad end up and to the left.
1. Pull it through the neck opening so that it is the wrong side out to the right.
2. Bring the broad end from right to left over the narrow half, with the proper side facing up.

4. Insert it through the loop at the front of the collar when drawing it down.
5. Slide the knot upward with one hand while gripping the tails with the other.

The four-in-hand knot is ideal for broad neckties made of thick cloth. It looks best when paired with a conventional button-down dress shirt. Anyone can tie the four-in-hand knot in a couple of minutes by following a few simple steps.
1. Raise the shirt collar and drape the tie over the neck so that the broad end is on the right side and reaches about 12 inches below the small end.

The most fashionable design to tie a knot is the Trinity knot. It is a little more challenging to tie than the four-in-hand knots and Windsor, as it is a stylish fashion icon for formal gatherings.

The Pratt knot, also known as the Shelby knot, adds a beautiful touch to any dress shirt. Because this knot is thinner than the Windsor knot, it looks well with light to medium-weight ties. To perfect the Pratt knot, follow a few easy steps.

2. Pass the tie’s broad part beneath the small detail.
