Match the suit, shirt and tie seems easy. But sometimes it is not so. We must take into account some key aspects.
¿How can I match the suit, shirt & tie?
How many suits do you have in your closet? Surely a blue, gray or black one. From the chosen suit, we must think about the rest: shirt, tie, pocket square, shoes, socks, etc.
¿Whats the firts to macht the suit?
But before that we must mention the color wheel, which we have already talked about in a previous article which you can access by clicking here.
After having read the previous article, we can choose between three options:
- Monochromatic: in this first one we will use a single color but in different tones applying it to each garment of our outfit. This will give you a clean and harmonious look
- Complementary: in this case we will look for opposite colors. Eg. a blue jacket with a red tie. With this we will apply a contract to our clothing
- Analogous: This option uses colours that sit adjacent to each other on the colour wheel. It must be used carefully to avoid being overwhelming
Choosing the perfect tie:
After knowing the different patterns, it is time to choose the right tie. Here we have another scale to take into account based on the shirt we are wearing:
- A pattern: If the shirt has any design or pattern, the tie will not or will not be as noticeable. The grace is that the pattern of one of the garments stands out over the other
- Contrast of patterns between shirt and tie: In this case we will choose two patterns that combine, eg. a dotted tie with a plaid shirt
- A solid tie: This type of tie or a paisley is the bes election to put the attention on your shirt and make a contrast between both garments
Choosing the perfect shirt:
This is simpler than it sounds, as there are key colors in the shirts that can be combined with any suit. Whether navy blue, gray, tan or black. With these you can wear a white, light blue or pink shirt. Being light tones you can combine with any tie.
