Has this been the situation for you that you are having your one of favourite lavender shirts in your hand and wondering which tie is going to suit you perfectly? Well, Here at MensUSA we are to recommend you what will make you an attractive personality in this event.
What comes your mind first:
Blue! In a single word. Obviously, it may be a good choice as lavender shirt. But wait, stay with us for more cool options. With the single word suggestion, you could go with silvery white tie too. But in fashion you don't end up with a single word solution. For your perfect look there are many other options which will go attractive with your lavender dress shirt and the coat your choosing to wear with.
Coat will play a major role too:
In addition to above colors mentioned, there are other options too depending the type of your coat. You could also consider green and navy. A black or charcoal colored tie would be something to experiment this evening.
What is the shade of your lavender?
As per the tint of your shirt following are the quick suggestion you can go for.
Solid lavender: Prefer a tie which is one shade lighter or darker than your solid lavender shirt and lavender suits has a different finishing or texture. Let us have an example: if your shirt is silky and in matte finish, you should go for a tie with nubby type texture and it should have shiny finish.
Mostly lavender: Prefer a tie which has purple background and its has patterns in somewhat contrasting colors.
Shirt having a touch of lavender: Comparatively this is not a tough call. You could prefer a tie which is navy or dark gray in color. Also bronze, teal or gold having some pattern of lavender would do the job.
With a suit you go more conservative and go for plain or light stripes, with a light tie. Or go for the Etro/Duchamp style with a dark suit with bold chalk-stripes and a loud tie.
I do not think the mens collar shirts colour is as big of an issue, as you think. I have a similar shirt but with slightly thicker maroon lines - normally worn with navy suit, navy tie (pattern but the navy shades are very similar) with dark brown shoes.
If I had that shirt - grey suit, plain or pattern tie (not diagonal) with black or brown shoes depending on the tie. With a patterntie I would go for something like a Hermes tie.
I always look at the collar on a patterned shirt to see if the two sides match. I don't worry too much about the side seams, though. Not usually very visible, and it's difficult to get the various body panels to match at that point.
Pocket match is obviously important (pocket pattern to body pattern), and I also like to find those that match across the front. A really well-made shirt will have the placket in synch with the pattern as well, hopefully with the major stripe centered.
Lastly, I put the cuffs together to match them with one another and make sure that the pattern is not off-center too much. With RTW, you sometimes have to go through a few before satisfying all those criteria.
