Get the Hollywood look with a skinny tie

If you are looking to perfect your party style ahead of the bustling holiday season, why not take some hints from Hollywood's best and brightest and try unique ties on for size?

From sci-fi stars to slick '60s characters, it seems the whole world has embraced the skinny tie as a fashion staple this holiday season.

Snaps of Mad Men actor Jon Hamm in character as Don Draper on the set of the hit AMC show hit the press earlier this week, with the sytlish star sporting skinny ties with grey and blue suits for the hit program's upcoming fifth season.

Meanwhile, Star Trek and Super 8 director JJ Abrams told a California crowd last Thursday that he is "singlehandedly bringing back the skinny tie", Society News LA reported.

Speaking at the annual state Beat the Odds benefit for the Children's Defence Fund, Abrams showed off his stylish accessories - although Star Trek actor Zachary Quinto fired back a one-liner of his own.

"My tie is skinnier," Quinto jokingly retorted.

A skinny tie, paired with a sharp shirt and a tailored jacket, can be a great Christmas party look and can be dressed up or down with jeans or tailored trousers to suit the event.
