BLOCK COLOUR + PATTERN

DARK GREEN + YELLOW OR SKY BLUE

One of the most effortless ways to pull together a fashionable look for an upcoming event is to choose the perfect shirt color to pair with your dark green bow tie. Bright colors such as crisp white, sunshine yellow, or sky blue will always make a statement and are usually a safe bet for pulling off a timelessly classic look. 

If you’re feeling adventurous, try out nuances of grey or a dusty rose, which can offer sophistication and subtle boldness that’ll make all the difference in your overall outfit. Alternatively, if opting for an understated appearance, you could play it safe with classic hues such as black, navy, and beige, which are guaranteed to turn heads. 

No matter which option you opt for with your dark green bow tie, you’re sure to look stunning and urdughr stylish.

CHAMBRAY + WOOLS

Most of your tie collection is likely glossy; however, there are other options for silk. Chambray shirts can inject your outfit with a textured look for casual fashion.

“If you opt for the chambray, never wear it with a silk tie,” McCart advises. McCart. “The tie must have a softer handfeel, such as flannel, knitted wool or cashmere, preferably worn with a brushed wool or flannel suit.”

WHITE + BLOCK COLOUR

If you keep your tie base neutral, you’ll have the flexibility to wear whatever you want on your neck. “It is impossible to go wrong with any tie on a white base,” says Selfridges’ formalwear buyer Alex McCart. However, that doesn’t mean you should steer clear of novelty. Even subtle patterns can make an impact if you have a simple background.

It’s not like a white shirt will match the first item you pull from the drawer. “Stay away from bright ties with dark suits,” suggests McCart. Instead, choose the same color as your suiting to bring your outfit together.

If you want to spruce up your wardrobe, look no further than a box tie set. These ties are perfect for any formal occasion and provide a classic style with an edgy twist. 

The mix of patterns gives this classic style a modern and eye-catching look, making you stand out from the crowd. The versatility of this set makes it ideal for more casual events as well. No matter the event, you’ll be sure to make an impression with a beautiful box tie set!
