Solid Neckties

Popular colours are dark blue, purple, green and burgundy. Get a few ones and practice wearing them. When you are comfortable, you can opt for different textures and patterns.

Tartan or Plaid Neckties

This ties are easily recognised due to their prints which is usually stripes with different widths and colours. For a necktie, this is often arranged at an odd angle so the pattern looks like diamonds when viewed from the front as opposed to squares.
