Elegant shirts, ties and suits colour combination

Pairing your shirt and tie is an important step to achieving that fashionable look. As a rule, your tie should always be darker than the colour of your shirt. Otherwise, it will not stand out and your overall look becomes dull and boring.

Choosing the right tie is equally important. It does not have to be super expensive to look great. Just avoid something too shiny.

Now for the challenging part - combining your shirt and tie. If you are terrible at colour combination, get yourself a colour wheel where you can see what hues are similar or contrasting.

Hopeless at combining colours? Choose a white or plain shirt. You should also own sky blue and beige because you can't go wrong with these types of colours.

Thus, even if you opt for ties that are striped, tartan or even knitted, you can combine these beautifully with plain shirts without giving yourself and others sore eyes.

Blue shirts also go well with a lot of ties and suits. You should get a darker tie than your shirt. It can be blue or even dark orange along with red or gold that will look great.

Pink shirts work best with similar hues such as purple and mauve. A tie in any darker shade will look fantastic. For all the above colours, you can also substitute green. A pink shirt with a dark blue tie for example looks attractive.

Striped and checked shirts are more difficult to manage when it comes to colour combination. But, with a little pratice, you will get it right.

Wear vertical striped shirts with a striped tie for contrast and to differentiate the patterns. Another option is to don on check shirts and pair them with stripe ties. Geometric patterned shirts are more difficult to combine so you might want to avoid these.

Plain slightly dark shirts can also work with most ties. For sure, black which is a dark colour looks great on any suit. Whether you are going to wear plain or patterned suits in traditional colours of grey, black or navy blue, the above colour combinations should be kept in mind.
