The Power of Paisley – Style & Matching Tips for Paisley Ties
If you have found yourself wearing either striped or solid ties day after day, then it is time for a change. 2013 is all about patterns, layering, and contrast, and few accessories will do as good of a job in doing just that, than a paisley tie. But before you head out to your next Nordstroms in search of the perfect paisley, make sure you familiarize yourself with these basic style tips. Depending on your personal style, I created three looks: “The Sophisticated”, “The Dapper”, and “The Renegade”.
You like 3-piece suits, classic brass-button blazers, and black tie events. Your tie collection consists of plenty of solids, repp-striped ties, and you even own a few paisleys. While you do own paisley ties, it is time to upgrade your wardrobe for the 2013 season. Pick bold paisley patterns but stick to classic colors such as navy, reds, hunter green, amber, charcoal, and brown. Besides these ties you should consider investing in a few key accessories such as tie bars, paisley pattern pocket squares, vests, and cardigans. Below are a few of my favorite looks found on some of my favorite style blogs, Pinterest, and google images.
You subscribe to GQ, prefer slim ties over wider pieces, and half of all your facebook page likes are for sartorial style blogs. You do own a nice tie collection but I bet that there is not a single paisley tie among them – but this is about to change. Choose slimmer (but not skinny) paisley ties that are about 3 to 3.25 inches in width. Chose bright colors but stick to a monochromatic color theme. Perfect here are pastel tones such as baby-blue, lavender, pinks, and mint-greens. Here are some of my favorite paisley tie looks for “The Dapper” dude in you.
You don’t really care about following a certain trend but instead focus your energy on being different. While you may not be an everyday tie wearer, you too can benefit from owning a few paisley pieces. Best for you are vintage inspired paisley designs in muted colors. Both silk and wool are strong contenders for you. Here are a few looks that my inspire you to experiment with paisley neckties.
