Tips to Picking the Right Tie

Tips to Picking the Right TieMany people have trouble picking out men’s ties. Whether the tie in question is a solid color or they are looking at patterned ties , some people find the process very challenging. Here are some tips to make it easier:

Go with a tie that complements the jacket and shirt. Some people think they need their ties to match each other but they really just need to match the other clothing that is being worn with them at the same time. Patterned ties can be a great way to show off your personality but it is important to make sure it looks good with your shirt and jacket.

Get the right size of tie. There is no "one size fits all" in the world of ties. Most fashion experts say that the tie should be between 3 and 3.5 inches. Another way to look at that is to make the width of the tie work well with the width of your lapel. To achieve a classic look, you do not want the tie to be too large for your clothing or too thin.

Be careful with patterned ties. Patterned ties can make a real statement but you want to make sure it is the statement you want to make. The tie should not look exactly like the shirt it is being worn with but should complement the look without being too busy or loud.

Pick the right color. Many people say that you are smart sticking to classic colors such as blue, olive, or purple. These colors can go with a lot of different shirts and jackets. Red ties are also popular among some people.
