Spice up every day business wear with a snazzy plaid tie. Ties that feature plaid patterns come in a wide variety of colors, so there's sure to be something to match every suit and shirt. Here are some ways to wear ties in plaid.
As a well-loved option for the office, a blue tie in plaid is the easiest choice. Blue is subtle, looks suave and can be worn with lots of other colors. Wear a blue tie with a solid purple, white or beige shirt. Neutral grey or black suits go perfectly over any of these combinations.
Black ties aren't just for special occasions. Black tie with plaid patterns can be worn over any office shirt. Match black ties to light colors for more contrast, like light blue and cream. As long as the suit matches the shirt color, you're good to go. For a warmer shade, a pink tie can be worn. Pink plaid ties tend to be more subtle, so wear them with darker cool shades like indigo and black. For a lighter look, pink ties will look nice over white or pale blue shirts. Pink will work perfectly under a brown suit for a snazzy contrast.
Another warm choice is a red tie. Red is very eye grabbing, so wear it wisely. Match a red tie in plaid with a white shirt to make it stand out, or smooth it into your outfit with a medium grey shirt. Typically, a dark blue suit will work nicely with red ties.
Purple ties in plaid are a nice choice for both warm and cool tones. The luxurious look of purple picks up even more elegance in traditional plaid print. Mix purple ties with white, dark green or light grey shirts for stunning contrast.
