A classic when worn at weddings, but also a sometimes surprise feature of many a guy’s tie collection, a well-chosen neck accessory in dusty pink can give your outfit a fresh touch.
Wearing dusty pink ties with the rest of your suit
Match a dusty pink tie and pocket square against a paler blue or white shirt and a dark blue, navy, or charcoal suit.
Following the rules laid out by the classic colour wheel, we know that warm and cool colours go together. It follows that a warm colour like pink loves to harmonise with cooler colours like those above.
You’ll probably want to avoid wearing yours against a dark grey or black shirt though. Because while these are cooler colours, they can make your complexion look a little off when worn against the skin of your neck and set against the pink of your tie.
When should I wear a dusty pink tie?
You will probably want to save your dusty pink tie and pocket square for the March to August part of the year.
Wearing a suit at this time of year - and with a pink tie - means taking care with your choice of fabric as well. Aim for a lighter weight of material and consider lighter tones like tan or light grey as well as navy blue.
Is dusty pink a wedding tie colour?
Dusty pink ties are a very popular choice for weddings. Particularly for weddings in the spring and summer season and worn with a lighter suit, a dusty pink tie makes a great wedding outfit addition. You can also combine yours with a very light check suit or one with very narrow pinstripes.
