Why combine red with black?On the one hand you may find red a bit too bright. On the other hand, you may find black a bit too formal and uninteresting. But combining these two colours creates a special elegance that by themselves the colours would never be able to achieve.
Why wear a red and black tie?Black is the colour of sophistication. Red is the colour of masculinity, courage, excitement, and warmth. Now you can lead the way at your next business meeting or event, or express your personality at your next party.
Lead the way at your next business meeting or eventWhen you go to your next business event, the red will allow you to exert your authority. (Many CEOs like to wear red ties.) The black will add that extra bit of style and charm, and allow you to lead with poise.
Express your personality at your next partyWhen you walk into your next party, you’ll definitely stand out with a red and black tie. You will look masculine, mature, and cultivated. The excitement of the red will combine with the finesse of black to let your personality shine. (And the chances are, you could be the only person at this party with such a colour combo, so you’ll be unique as well)
Different patternsThe patterns on your tie can change the effect just as much as the colours. With red and black ties two of the main patterns are stripes and polka dots. Each one of these patterns will present a different image to those around you.
StripesMost men will wear a red and black tie with stripes, because stripes are the best way to contrast the two colours to get the desired effect. You can wear a striped tie to any formal business meeting, event or gathering.
Polka dotsIf you want to be more adventurous, you can try polka dots. It isn’t always easy to pull off, but if you do pull it off, you will turn heads. You can wear polka dots to parties, and business events that are less formal.
Matching your tie to your shirt - a quick guideThis tie will go best with a white shirt, no doubt about it. If you want to exude the professionalism that this colour combination will give you, the contrast of a white shirt will help you achieve the best effect. (Then you can out a black suit on top.)
Some men also like to wear this tie with a black shirt, which looks more casual, and is good for parties and weddings.
In general, shirts of other colours won’t allow you to have the effect that you want with this tie. Only white and black will let this colour combination speak for itself.
