Picking out the right tie
 10/5/2012  by  Mikey

How to Pick Out Just the Right Tie

Picking out the right tie can be an art. You might pick out a tie that you think looks amazing that everyone else thinks looks tacky and unprofessional. When it comes to picking out a tie, you want to be sure that youíre right. Otherwise, you could hurt your professional reputation in the office.
Here are a few tips for how you can pick out just the right tie every time:

Size
The size of the tie should be the easiest.You want to choose a tie that is long enough that it rests just above your belt buckle when it is tied. The width of the tie at the section that is showing at the top of your suit should match the width of your lapels.

Materials

Most ties are silk or a silky material, and thatís the safest choice.
You should always wear silk ties with your business suits. However, you can wear wool ties if you are wearing a tweed jacket or another heavy fabric, which you might like to do when the temperatures drop.

Colors

Colors are where people start to go wrong with ties. The key is to pick a color that complements both your shirt and your suit, such as a yellow tie with a blue shirt and a black suit. If you arenít sure about combinations, stick to a simple white shirt or a black suit since they will match with anything. 

Patterns
Patterns are where most people make their fatal errors with ties. Patterns can get out of hand, and it can be hard to control all the colors in the patterns to make sure everything matches nicely. Try to choose something that complements the shirt, such as a striped tie with a striped shirt. Just choose a thicker stripe for the tie than what you have on the shirt. Your pattern should not blend, and it should not contrast.
