- Lavender: this pastel shade is said to dominate the whole summer season, so this is a key colour.
- Purple: In line with pantone’s colour of the year Ultra Violet
- Rapture Rose: This princess-like intense shade is a suggested shade that should be paired with light fabrics.
- Sky Blue: This can brighten up your suit and help you create a calm and professional look.
- Light Green: A delicate and fresh natural colour in a slight pastel form.
- Military Green: A classic colour that is often considered as a natural hue, in-line with beige. A subtle and classic tie colour suggestion for someone who doesn’t want to stand out.

How Can I Include These Colours Into My Tie?
- Block Colour: You can make a statement by picking a tie in the singular chosen colour, this makes you stand out and would be a definite fashion hit.
- Stripes: Using stripes, you can mix together multiple of the trending colours, or overlay one or two over a neutral and less vibrant colour. This way you can create subtle style elements.
- Other Patterns: You need to be careful which colours and patterns you use together; otherwise you could turn a fashion statement into a fashion failure. A good tip is to use, a mixture of dark and bright colours, or stick to a colour theme (using either two contrasting colours against a neutral colour or a range of harmonious colours).
