T’s Tips on Ties

7 Feb

First Monday of the Month…MANic Monday!

If men can run the world, why can’t they stop wearing neckties?  How intelligent is it to start the day by tying a little noose around your neck?  ~Linda Ellerbee

Here’s a simple tip to remember when pairing ties and shirts:

Tie complements the coat, the shirt complements the tie

• When wearing a patterned shirt the tie can be bold if the shirt is subtle or vice versa. However, with a little work, both can be bold which is a personal favorite.

• When deciding what colors go together, think of combinations of colors that create new colors such as blue and yellow make green. Most anything in those color combinations should work.

This above look is my all-time favorite!  Bar None!

• Bold contrasts such as grey on blue is a great idea but normally works best when either the shirt or tie are solid. 

Coming Friday, Valentine’s Day  ideas!
