Choosing the right tie in coordination to an outfit can sometimes prove difficult. A lot of factors come into play when choosing both tie and shirt for the perfect balance and look. The goal here is to give you a better understanding of color coordinating tie and shirt, mixing and matching patterns. It’s really just about understanding the basics of color; once you master this successfully you can become your own fashion guru! Let’s get started!
Pairing a solid color shirt with a solid color tie is easy to do. It’s mastering the art of mixing & matching patterns along with the understanding of basic color that one must acquire for successful fashion. Let’s start with pairing your tie to a solid colored shirt, this is much easier to do than pairing with pattern or stripes. Keep in mind that your tie should be darker than your shirt. This is best when going for a conservative style. If you want to make your look some what edgy and unique perhaps you can pair a lighter color tie with a darker color shirt. Always remain conscious of your color choices when pairing so you don’t end up looking like a watermelon.
Keep in mind that not all colors can be combined. Using a color wheel will be a huge help when choosing your ensemble. Complimentary colors accentuate each other. I highly recommend you become familiar with it if you're not already. Seasonal modifications also play a role in choosing the appropriate color choices when pairing shirt and tie. Remember also that you can pair basically any tie with a white shirt, they're the most versatile. Pastel/ light/pale shades are more appropriate for the warmer months. Rich tones also know as jewel tones because they highly resemble gemstone colors. They contain a high level of saturation. This makes them unique and distinct. These “jewel tones” are great for the cooler months. Click here to check out our selection of solid ties. Try this out for now and next time we’ll talk about pairing patterns!
