What are the colors of ties and how are they used in life?
All about ties
A tie, in the form in which we know it now, appeared only in the middle of the 19th century. Prior to this, in the history there are descriptions of accessories that are vaguely reminiscent of a tie, but these were rather neckerchiefs. In 1827, Honore de Balzac in his book “The Art of Wearing a Tie” described the need to wear this wardrobe item.
The appearance of the tie was constantly changing, in the fashion it was either narrow, then wide, then long, then short styles, fashionable fabrics and patterns of the accessory changed.
Tie to business suit does not imply excessive pathos and originality. When choosing, it is better to give preference to traditional colors and ornaments, but pay special attention to quality.
Winter and summer ties vary in material density and color. The denser and warmer the fabric, the less such a tie is suitable for a light summer suit. And vice versa - a thin silk tie does not look the best with a warm suit made of thick wool. In addition, ties of the autumn-winter period are more restrained in the color scheme than summer ones, where the spectrum of light and bright tones is much more diverse.
Small peas. The smaller and lighter the peas and, at the same time, the darker the background color, the more formal the tie looks.
Foulard. Fular is a small, regularly repeating geometric pattern on a plain background. Ties with such an ornament are suitable for formal business events, as well as for social events.
Diagonal strip. A classic tie ornament suitable for any occasion.
Paisley (or "Turkish Cucumber"). A large drawing is ideal for a club look.
Cell. A tie in a cage is more suitable for a non-business environment.
The nature of the pattern and the color of the tie set the tone for the whole image. In a more formal and formal setting, it is better to choose a tie that is plain or with a minimal discreet ornament.
This color symbolizes energy and self-confidence. Therefore, a red tie gives the impression of energy and competence. However, with an authoritarian character, a red tie should be used dosed, because it can emphasize aggression and a tendency to dominate.
Maroon tie color
The color of luxury and power. Use this color when you want to create a respectable look.
Pink color tie
Adds softness and cordiality to the image. A bright pink color can be associated with frivolity, and therefore, in a business environment, it should be avoided.
Symbolizes energy, vitality and optimism. A tie of this color is appropriate in informal situations and is suitable mainly for red-haired men.
The color is soft, inspiring confidence and location. But sometimes brown color can speak of a tendency to doubt, so if you have to defend your position, you should choose a different color, for example, green.
It creates the impression of a stubborn person. Color has a calming effect. Use it in situations when heated discussions are coming, it will help defuse the situation.
It embodies scientific, craving for knowledge and perseverance. Use this color when you want to give the impression of an open and friendly person.
Purple color tie
A color that evokes a sense of mystery. The dark purple color of individualists and proud. Light purple is the color of melancholy.
This color evokes a feeling of calm and tranquility. With it symbolizes confidence, stability and organization.
A dark blue tie is a symbol of stamina and authority.
A light blue tie creates the image of a dreamer.
The value of gray varies from its saturation. Light gray can cause boredom and melancholy. The color of wet asphalt gives the image solidity, but it should be borne in mind that this shade is sometimes associated with modesty and indecision.
Choose the color of the tie according to your mood, and the color shade in accordance with your natural color type and integrity of the overall set of clothes.
The width of the tie is selected in accordance with the width of the lapels of the jacket. In a classic tie, the widest part is approximately 10-11 cm.
A narrow herring tie is worn, either simply with a fitted shirt, or with a jacket with narrow lapels.
In the classical style, the wide end of the tie should reach the belt buckle or cover it no more than 1 cm.
But at the same time, in everyday outfits, especially without a jacket, you can visually adjust the proportions of the figure using the length of the tie. So, for example, if you are not tall and the legs are significantly shorter than the body, then the tie can be made a little shorter so that it does not reach the belt buckle slightly. If you have very long legs, then the tie can be located just below the buckle, so you visually stretch the torso and the proportions will be more harmonious.
The narrow end of the tie should not hang freely, it must be fixed in a special loop on the back of the tie.
Choose a tie knot according to the width and density of the tie. For example, the Half-Windsor knot is well suited to a narrow tie, and the Windsor knot is better suited to a wide tie made of thick fabric.
Tie clips, periodically, then go into fashion, then go out of it, however, there are rules for wearing them.
The tie clip should be located clearly between the third and fourth buttons of the shirt.
The clip should fasten the tie with the shirt, not the front and back of the tie.
Do not wear a narrow clip with a wide tie.
A light plain tie is best worn with a lighter shirt.
A tie of bright and rich colors from silk light fabric is worn under a summer light suit.
A tie made of thick silk or woolen fabric, suitable for a warm winter suit.
A plain tie looks more interesting with a striped shirt or a cage, while the color of the stripes (or cage) should match the color of the tie.
A checkered tie can be combined with a checkered shirt, but in this case, either on the tie or on the shirt, the cage should dominate (this rule also applies to the striped ornament).
A tie with a fancy or floral pattern is worn with plain shirts.
Dark colors and small patterns are suitable for everyday wear.
A bright tie with a large pattern, it is recommended for people with a creative profession and for attending holiday events.
“A well-tied tie is the first serious step in life.” Oscar Wilde

The color scheme of ties with and without patterns
Today, the trend is saturated and bright colors of ties, regardless of the shape of the knot, print and width of the fabric. At the peak of fashion, there are bright, saturated sins that can contrast with the main things of the wardrobe.
Such a bright accessory makes it possible for a man to emphasize the individuality of style, to show creative skills and simply distinguish his person from the gray crowd of identical passers-by.
Where to wear?
For a trip to the office and to a meeting with the bosses, it is better to choose more restrained colors with a calm pattern, so as not to distract others from work and not focus on your person in the work team.
Screaming colors and fabrics with intricate patterns will be a good complement to the club image, they are also suitable for informal meetings.
What to wear?
The main details of the wardrobe that fit perfectly with a tie are a shirt and trousers.
However, in an informal setting, it looks better with dark blue or black jeans of a classic cut and a jumper with a V-neck or vest.

Ties of extraordinary colors
Much depends not only on the shade of the fabric and on its texture, but also on the elements of clothing with which it is worn. The most risky color that is best avoided in a business setting is orange. Next, we will take a closer look at a few of the most popular color schemes for this accessory.
Turquoise tie - this color is loved by optimists, funny lovers of parties and unbridled fun. A man who prefers this color may even seem younger than his age.
An emerald tie is the color of location and appeasement. He is favored by benevolent men and self-sufficient individuals who do not tolerate fuss.
Raspberry tie is a choice of energetic, purposeful and assertive personalities. Sometimes they are too emotional, but such open emotions do not interfere with the implementation of business projects.
Classic color ties
Combinations of black, white, red, and blue are considered classic. They can be worn with business suits and any official bows. This versatile color scheme to which you can pick up a variety of shirts and suits.
Black and white are the most conservative options. Pure models without patterns in this color are rarely chosen, but in any case, such a decision speaks of the conservative views of the representative of the stronger sex. No wonder black ties are worn by students, students and military personnel.
Often men prefer a striped pattern in classic colors. This is one of the most popular prints in the world. In the classic version, the stripes are arranged from left to right. Most often, you can see a red-blue tie or blue with a dark blue strip.
There is one pattern. The more modest the color scheme, the smaller the width of the stripes. And the thinner the strip, the more formal the result looks. But still, striped models are far from the top five business ties.
In the end, I want to add that you should not deny yourself vivid accents. If in business circles it is desirable to give preference to restrained colors (the ideal solution is burgundy, blue, purple), then in an informal setting it is simply necessary to be individual and choose your favorite image that is most comfortable for yourself!
