When To Wear A Navy Blue Tie

Navy blue neckties are just as trusted and timeless as black ties. While slightly less formal, they are extremely versatile and can add a touch of sophistication to your look—without going overboard. Plus, it’s said that navy blue portrays a sense of confidence, successfulness and loyalty, and there's nothing wrong with that! Here’s how to wear that navy blue tie.

Job Interview

A navy blue tie is our top pick for job interview attire. This conservative color will ensure you’re dressed appropriately, not overdressed or over the top. Think of navy blue as a neutral and it will be easy to match to a suit and dress shirt. A navy tie matches black, gray, blue, even brown or tan suits.

Business Setting

The versatility of a navy blue necktie can be quite useful if you wear a tie daily. As explained above, a navy blue tie will match most suit colors. It also matches most dress shirts, too—white, blue, yellow, gray. Plaid dress shirts are a great way to mix up work attire. But many find these pattern dress shirts difficult to match. Grab a solid navy tie and compare it to those plaid dress shirts. You’ll be surprised how many it matches.

First Date

There’s no better time than a first date to make a good impression. After all, she might be the one! A classic solid navy tie will show your sense of fashion with little room for error. Yes, we keep saying that a navy blue tie will ensure you’re not overdressed. But not every date requires a necktie. If you want to add a navy tie to a more casual outfit, choose a thinner width and matter finish, like our navy blue cotton/silk slim necktie.

Everyday Wear

Stand out from the crowd and wear a navy tie casually. We told you it’s easy to match, and it’s true. Pair your navy tie with a collared shirt and a nice pair of jeans (sport coat optional). A 2.5- to 3-inch width navy tie is perfect for everyday wear. (If you’re feeling adventurous, look for a subtle stripe or pattern in your navy tie.) This look is casual yet sophisticated.

Formal Events

We keep telling you that a navy blue tie will keep you from being overdressed. But it is possible to dress up a navy tie for formal wear. It’s a great choice for a wedding or gala that isn’t specifically labeled a black tie event. A navy blue bow tie or tone-on-tone patterned tie, like a navy blue herringbone or elite striped tie, is perfect for your most formal black suit.
