It’s a timeless classic
As a classic staple of the men’s fashion world, the striped tie is effortlessly chic and stylish. A nicely designed tie will instantly make any suit look smart and the striped material provides instant sophistication. For formal occasions such as weddings, it’s a good idea to opt for a silk or satin tie. These materials will reflect the light beautifully and really enhance the stripe detailing. Every wedding is different, but great colour options are two tone grey, white and grey or white and silver. Alternatively, if the celebration has slightly warmer colours, you might want to choose a gold stripe instead.
It’s easy to coordinate
One of the great advantages of wearing a striped tie, is that they’re so easy to coordinate with the wedding’s theme colours. Whether you’re the groom, a member of the wedding party or a guest, it’s good to consider what accessory colours the bride will be wearing on the day. If in doubt, go for a neutral coloured background, such as cream or white, with your primary colour as the stripe. Alternatively, you could wear a tie featuring two complementary shades of the same colour.
It will suit everyone
A lovely quality of the striped tie is that they suit everyone and most men will own one at some point in their lives. This makes them a great choice for weddings, whatever role you’re playing in the big day. If you’re the groom, it will be easy for you to coordinate your tie with those worn by your groomsmen. Some grooms like to match exactly with their wedding party, which makes for a smart, uniform look in wedding photos. If you’re attending a wedding as a guest, try asking the happy colour what their theme colour is, ahead of the day. It should be easy to find a striped tie to match.
