“The royal colour” as it is often referred to is becoming more acceptable. Compared to the red “power” tie”, purple is a colour that makes you stand out from the crowd and shows a bit of self-confidence. Purple ties can be used spring, summer or fall but maybe not the best choice during winter. Lavender, purples cousin colour if you will, is sometimes described as a medium purple or a light pinkish purple and is definitely worth trying out with a light grey suit during warm summer days.
Trying to create lasting first impressions or just looking for something different, regardless of your intentions, don’t overlook purple ties from now on.
