If you work in an office environment or at a job that requires you to wear suits on a daily basis, having a deep collection of ties allows you to keep your look fresh and interesting. It’s no coincidence that the fallback present for Christmas, birthdays, and Father’s Day is always a brand new necktie. You simply can’t have too many, and with all the different varieties and options, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of outdated and gimmicky ties. Use these tips to get the most out of your tie collection:
Maximize Matching: When you’re shopping for a tie, take into consideration the dress shirts and suits you already own. The tie is but one part of a whole outfit, and needs to coordinate with the rest of the ensemble. The more combinations a new tie can make with the pieces you already own, the better. If you wear predominately light colored shirts and dark suits, the hue of your tie should fall somewhere in between.
Go Conservative: Like all other articles of clothing, tie styles change rapidly, but there are always a few classic tie looks that last: solid black, pin-dot, rep, and wool. Avoid the flamboyant or extreme styles that might be in vogue at the moment, and keep kitschy holiday ties to an absolute minimum. You’ll wear them for a while and then try to forget that you ever bought them. With that being said...
Mix It Up: There’s plenty of room to play with various necktie fabric, colors, and patterns. Try working a plaid tie into your wardrobe during the autumn months, or pair a patterned tie with a less obviously patterned shirt. As long as your tie remains in synch with the rest of your suit and doesn’t overpower it, try mixing and matching to your heart’s content.
