Whether or not you've been following the Transformers: Age of Extinction press tour, actress Nicola Peltz (opens in new tab) should be on your radar. Despite being only 19-years-old and new on the scene, her choice red-carpet looks make it clear she's at the forefront of every trend (opens in new tab). One of her latest looks, a plunging Prada halter gown boasted an exquisite detail we're looking to incorporate into our wardrobes: the neck tie.

If your day-to-day isn't comprised of black tie soirées, the easiest way to take on the trend is by looking to tops with a skinny, built-in scarf. It adds a touch of elegance, frames the face, and essentially makes a shirt an accessory in and of itself. It's all how you tie it, really.
