Lots of men overlook the teal tie because it feels like it isn’t one thing or the other. Not really blue, not really green either, it seems on the surface like ties of this colour might be difficult to match with the right suit.
But nothing could be further from the truth. You only need to look at the incredibly stylish looks that so many guys pull off with their favourite teal tie to see what a flexible addition to your wardrobe this can be.
What suit matches a teal tie?
Grey and navy suits are both excellent pairings with teal ties. You can even mix the two, with grey suit trousers and a navy blazer being a particular classic that looks youthful and trendy especially when worn with black leather loafers.
You might also consider the power of a chequered suit jacket. A blue check blazer is a brilliant match for a teal tie, with brown leather shoes typically being the neutral ground where the two colours meet.
You can also create more classic outfits with dark brown and tan outfits paired with this colour of tie, along with patterns like gingham. This can be a particularly good look if your tie has a pattern as long as the patterns don’t clash.
When should I wear a teal tie?
Teal ties are excellent business and business casual attire. You’ll also see many men wear them in social situations. In fact, that hint of classic blue flexibility means they go with so many outfits and colours of suit that it’s a rare occasion when they won’t be suitable.
Don’t be afraid to exploit teal’s combined blue-green nature to make combinations of your own either. A grey or blue blazer goes with a teal tie so well that it leaves you with a huge range of lower-half options and exciting possibilities for opening up your whole wardrobe.
