Teal ties come in traditional blue-green teal, light, and dark teal. If you purchase one to add some color to your wardrobe, you need to know how to wear a men’s teal tie. Ties add versatility to your wardrobe. You can wear a tie to demonstrate your personal style or you can match the material, color, and pattern of your tie to the activity at which you will be wearing it, such as to a wedding, to a business meeting, or out on the town.
You can wear teal ties with a variety of shirt styles, including solid white, fine stripe, bengal stripe, and windowpane. For a modern, elegant look that is perfect for the office, pair a dark teal tie with a solid white shirt and a wool suit in a deep navy or light gray to show off your classic, sophisticated side. Teal ties also go well with light blue or yellow shirts, as well as striped or patterned shirts featuring teal.
During spring and summer, combine a light teal tie with a solid white shirt and a light gray suit for a casual look. Prada’s light teal micro-pattern silk slim tie is a good choice for this outfit. Available online from Bluefly, this tie costs around $149. A solid light teal silk tie is another good summer choice. If you want a bolder look, consider the teal and light yellow striped tie from Solidcolorneckties.com. It costs only $6.95.
In the fall, pair a light blue fine-striped shirt with a woven, dark teal tie. For a casual and hip look, pair a teal tie that has diagonal stripes with a fine-striped shirt because the diagonal stripes on the tie will contrast nicely with the shirt’s vertical stripes. If you want a preppy look, match your fine stripe shirt with a teal repp tie.
If you have a bengal stripe shirt, offset the thick stripes with a teal tie in a subtle pattern. The subtle pattern will offer a contrast to the shirt's bengal stripes. Zazzle offers several striped ties for around $30 that will help you stand out from the crowd. Of course, you could throw caution to the wind in your bengal stripe shirt and match it with a bold patterned teal tie that will get you noticed
If you prefer windowpane shirts, a teal tie with chunky diagonal stripes will look great. Match the primary colors from the shirt to the chunky stripes in your tie. If you want to focus on minor colors in your windowpane shirt, get a tie whose prominent colors match the shirt’s minor colors. This is a great casual combination if you pair the shirt with a horizontally striped teal tie. If you stick to a dark teal, you will bring out the blue hue of your windowpane shirt.
You can purchase a teal tie in a variety of patterns and textures. Lighter shades of teal are more casual, while darker teal ties are more appropriate to wear at work or to a job interview. Express your personal style and demonstrate your sartorial sensibilities with a teal tie.
