First, you can match the same color shirt with the same color tie
and this can be a good option. However, when you want to truly match your tie with your apparel, the easiest thing to do is to coordinate. Coordinating is the art of matching two different colors that combine well. The standard coordinates are: pale blue shirt with a yellow, red, burgundy, gold or navy tie; pale pink shirt with a navy blue or burgundy tie; pale tan shirt with a brown (or any shade of brown) tie; French blue shirt with a yellow, bright red, deep burgundy or gold tie.
