Keep it cool There is no better look than a crisp linen jacket, a white cotton shirt and a light blue tie. It oozes charm, laid-back vibes and outdoor living. This is not the tie for cold winter days, unless you’re on your way to the airport for a trip to Barbados. You can wear your light blue tie then, just to tell the world that you are off to warmer climes. This is South of France, Cote D’Azur taking it easy style.
Team your light blue tie with a white linen suit if you dare, but watch those canapés, they will leave a nasty stain and that is certainly not cool at all. Evidence of a hastily eaten vol au vent will not go down well in Cannes.
Straight or bowYou have a choice here of what kind of light blue tie takes your fancy; floats your boat, as they say. You can opt for the standard necktie variety or, heck, how about a light blue bow tie? I bet that thought had never crossed your mind. How dapper.
Silky smooth, plain or spottyAnd your choices don’t end there. After you've decided on the type of tie, you still have to decide what fabric and design is the one for you. Life is just so complicated, isn’t it? It’s all too much sometimes. If you want an easy ride, just go for the plain one, really, don’t make life harder than it is on yourself. It suits every look and you can’t go wrong.
But, I don’t think you’re that kind of person; I think you can handle something just a little bit more than a plain light blue tie. We have silk, we have flowers, we have paisley light blue ties. And not just that: we have tartan, spots and stripes. Will it never end?
A style statementA light blue tie is casual, relaxed and bang on trend. A pale pink shirt or a white shirt will bring out its colour and make you look simply great. For a more formal occasion, the silk pale blue tie is a seriously classy number but still has that casual look. And if you’re getting married... this could be the colour for you. Personally, I would definitely recommend going for the light blue slim tie. Now that, my friend, is a fashion choice for the most discerning of chaps. Do it now, watch them stare.
