To create an outfit that really looks good does require that you put in some effort. When trying to match your shirt and necktie you need to consider what colors look good together and which look totally wrong when paired with each other. For example, solid shirts can be paired with solid or patterns neckties but you should not put a patterned tie with a patterned shirt. Patterns stand out more and it is very hard to find matching patterns. A plain white shirt will go with just about any color tie but proceed with caution when pairing a colored shirt and colored neck tie. However, if you are a person who does not care about the rules of wearing a neck tie then anything goes.
