One of the hardest things about making outfit decisions is if the tie matches the shirt and the suit. If you know a lot about menswear, it’s easier to pair accessories and main clothes most of the time. On the other hand, if you’re used to wearing neutrals because you’re afraid of wearing too much colour, you should ask for help sometimes.
Matching a top and a bottom clothing is easier than deciding on layers. For instance, if you have plain dark blue trousers and a white button-down shirt, would you rather pick another colour for the tie or similar to your existing colours?
After reading this article, you may easily answer the question. But before that, if you’re having some trouble picking the best shirt to pair with a sage green tie, here are some of the choices you can consider!
Use the sage green tie as a pop-up colour for your outfit. Usually, the colour sage green is used as a motif for weddings. Since you’re not the bride, you can wear an all-white suit and shirt paired with a sage green tie.
If you’re up for it, you can throw in beige loafers to match the outfit. Since white and sage green are both light colours, you’ll look fresh which is a great look for spring or summer weddings. However, you should double-check the outfit of the groom because you might end up wearing the same. Otherwise, don’t hesitate to pull this off.
We get it, you think ivory and white are the same, but they’re not. Usually, those who don’t think they can pull off white consider ivory instead. However, just like white, the combination of ivory and sage green tie also suits casual events. So even if you’re not going to attend a wedding, you can still wear a sage green tie paired with an ivory shirt.
Meanwhile, if you’re having a hard time thinking about the best colour of suit to pair with this combination, try the grey one. It’s not too light yet not too dark, so it’s the perfect match for this one.
Since ivory is on the basic side, try to pick a patterned suit or tie if possible.
On the other hand, you can wear a grey shirt with a sage green tie which can be paired with a darker or lighter grey suit. Compared to the others, this look can pass as a semi-formal outfit, especially if your suit is darker.
When it comes to shoes, you can wear a black leather pair since it’s an outfit leaning towards semi-formal.
Do you like wearing shirts with a pink undertone? Try pairing the sage green tie with a beige shirt. Since it has a cool tone, it’s perfect for an outdoor celebration when the sun is shining bright.
Additionally, you can wear a brown or tan suit or coat to top off your outfit. But since brown is a dark shade, this combination can also be worn for autumn or fall. And for the shoes, try dark brown or black leather.
A sage green tie can also be worn with a blue shirt or suit. Usually, you can see a lot of navy blue suits, sage green ties, and white shirt combinations. However, you can experiment and wear a navy blue shirt and white coat instead. It may be unorthodox, but it’s fun to wear something different once in a while.
As for the shoes, you can try suede brown or black leather.
Are you looking for a more earthy tone? Try pairing the sage green tie with a brown shirt. It’s an eye-catching look since the vibe is more of an outdoor celebration, hence the need to wear it for an outdoor celebration.
Aside from that, you can wear it with black boots to top off the look. Meanwhile, Don’t forget to wear a black suit to make the look more formal.
Deciding on what to wear on special occasions can be a hard thing to do. However, most of the time, you have ample time to try different colour combinations, so there’s nothing to worry about. Moreover, you can find a lot of tricks and tips online that can help you decide on what to buy.
But don’t forget to throw in some patterns sometimes. It’s fun, and patterns don’t always mean your outfit becomes casual in an instant. If you’ve seen some floral patterned suits before, you can use them as inspirations for what you can create with your existing clothes.
Now that you know a lot of options when it comes to choosing the perfect pair for your sage green tie, you can narrow them down. Don’t forget to share your thoughts about this by leaving a comment below!
