Pairing coral ties with the correct suit
A good guide for matching ties, shirts, and suits together is the traditional colour wheel. On the wheel, there are two types of colours - warm and cool.
A warm colour like coral pink is much more likely to go with cooler colours of shirt and suit. This means you won’t go far wrong if you pair your coral tie and pocket square with a grey or navy suit and a white or paler blue shirt.
You might occasionally see men wear a coral tie against a black or darker colour shirt. While this is technically correct as these are cooler colours, the mismatch between your complexion, the pink of your tie, and the deadened grey or black often results in a weird look that you probably don’t want.
When should I wear a coral tie?
It’s not a hard and fast rule, but a coral pink tie is usually worn during the spring and summer. Outside of the March to August period, you might want to consider whether a rainy day really suits the lively, colourful pink of your tie.
