Mix it up with a baby blue floral tie
Depending on your shade of choice, a light blue tie can add a youthful touch to your ensemble. After all, they call it baby blue for a reason!
A great choice for this is a sky blue tie
in a deeper, more vibrant shade. But if you want an accessory that really pops, experiment with adding a turquoise tie
or an aqua pocket square to your outfit. Even a light blue cufflink will really stand out on a white wedding shirt.
A light blue slim tie
is also a good canvas to add some patterns to your look. Ties with polka dots
are a popular choice, or you can get really adventurous with a baby blue floral
Pale blue tie FAQs
Is a light blue tie too casual?
No! While a little more playful than its sibling, navy blue, a light blue tie is acceptable for both formal and casual settings. It’s a safe choice for occasions where a black or navy suit is preferred.
If you believe in colour psychology — which we do — light and pale blues are commonly associated with trustworthiness and reliability. That’s why so many politicians choose light blues for their accessories.
Can you wear light blue and dark blue together?
Absolutely! People are often wary of pairing different shades of one colour in the same outfit. Luckily, blue is one of the most versatile and convenient colours to combine.
The fashionista term for this is tonal layering, the subtle art of matching different hues of the same colour on your outfit. An example of this is wearing a light blue shirt under a navy blue suit and tie.
Tonal layering is a handy way to make an outfit even more cohesive. If you’re keen to experiment with colours, try out some light and dark blue combinations!
When shouldn’t you wear a light blue tie?
Light blue is one of the safest colour choices for your accessories, as it pairs well with most formalwear. However, while red and blue is a winning combination for creating colour contrasts, take extra care when matching a light blue with your reds. A sky blue microfibre tie could look great on a crimson suit, but only if it's the right shade.
