• If you are going for the same tie color as your jacket, make sure the tones or patterns are different

  • Tie patterns should be worn depending if you are also wearing another part of the outfit with patterns. Don’t over wear them

  • Similarly, if you are wearing a tie with patterns or stripes, wear a plain shirt. Don’t over use the patterns, rather keep it clean

  • Polka dots on ties are great to set a color contrast with the suit

  • Checked trousers go well with darker colors, like green or navy
