Shirt and Tie Combinations

Shirt and Tie Combinations

Shirt and tie combinations hold an important place in men's clothing. They depend on many factors like the occasion, your physique, the ongoing fashion trends, etc. But then there can be different combinations that look good for the same occasion and given physique. Actually, you can go for anything that you are comfortable with, but the basic rules of men's fashion have to be followed in any case. There is added confusion when you are wearing a suit as for different colors of suits different combinations of shirts and ties have to be chosen. So how does one select the perfect shirt and tie combination that goes with the suit, suits the occasion, favors his physique, is fashion favorable and feels comfortable at the same time? Lets find out...

Tips for Selecting the Best Shirt and Tie Combinations
  • If you are wearing a check or striped shirt use a tie that has the same main colors as the shirt. If you are wearing a gray shirt with black stripes choosing a gray tie will be most appropriate.
  • Choose a tie with a pattern that is bigger in size as compared to the pattern on the shirt. If your shirt has a larger pattern then choose a tie with a smaller pattern. In this case try to keep the color combination neutral.
  • If you are using a striped shirt with a tie having stripes too, because their colors look great together, make sure the size of the stripes is not the same.
  • Ties having bold patterns, like polka dots, should be used with a shirt that has a contrasting pattern. Such patterns should be worn to a light hearted occasion and certainly not to an interview.
  • If you have chosen a micro check shirt and want to wear a micro check tie, make sure the shape of the checks on the shirt and tie are different. The color on the micro check tie should be matched with the suit or the shirt. But in no case the shirt, the suit and the tie should be of the same color.
  • If you are a fan of solid colors try a solid color shirt with a contrasting color tie. A striped tie looks really good with a solid color shirt. But at least one color on the tie should match with that of the shirt.
Shirt and Tie Combinations for Different Suits

Now let's see the different combinations of shirts and ties that you can use with different types of suits. The tips mentioned above for matching shirts and ties apply here too but with a few variations.

Shirt and Tie Combinations with Black Suit
The best shirt and tie combinations with navy suit or with a black suit is the white shirt and a black tie. Its the classic look and a personal favorite. The best part is that for this combination is that you have a large number of options in case of tie color. The only thing to remember is that the shade of the tie should contrast well with your shirt and suit. Do not use any bold pattern with this black suit white shirt combination. This combination is the best professional dress code.

Shirt and Tie Combinations with Grey Suit
Gray is another classic color. Blue, yellow and pink shirts go well with a gray suit. Blue goes best with gray, and suits almost any kind of occasion. If the suit is a solid gray opt for a striped shirt. The tie can be striped or solid and blue, black or pink in color. Gray is not as serious a color as black so a gray suit and a pink or blue shirt and a black tie can be a great semi-formal dress attire. Shirt and tie combinations with a charcoal suit can be similar to the gray suit combination.

In the end, fashion is about being comfortable. So whatever the shirt and tie combinations, if you are not comfortable or do not carry yourself with confidence, it is going to look out of place.
