I’m sure you’re aware of the many different ways to knot your necktie, but if you’ve never bothered to learn we’ve got you covered.

Not all knots are made equal. There are many things to consider: the tie’s size, symmetry, and shape. We’ve collected 7 different ways to tie a necktie. These will give you the edge you need to look stylish at all times at every type of occasion.

Here’s the list of 7 ways to tie a necktie:

1. Trinity Knot

A trinity knot is more of an exotic way to tie a necktie. At first glance, it might look intimidating but the moves are fairly simple.

2. The Van Wijk Knot

This long and slender knot makes a striking layered cylindrical effect. It works best with light colors and narrow collared shirts with a vest.

3. Fishbone Knot

This knot is somewhat challenging to create but most definitely worth the effort.

4. The Balthus Knot

This knot is perfect for weddings and other formal events. It’s recommended that you use a long necktie because this knot consumes a lot of fabric.

5. The Onassis Knot

This knot is deceptively simple: at the end of a standard Windsor Knot, you simply loop the wide end of the tie behind and over the existing knot.

6. The Four Rings Knot

This is no doubt a pretty unique take on the knot! It is best suited for a solid colored tie made of silk; recommended for parties or a casual weekend.

7. The Diagonal Knot

This type of knot goes well with a tie made of light fabric, in a solid color, and with a subtle pattern, so as not to make the knot look overly confusing while still giving it some additional details.
