Purple ties are one of the most popular ties today. Purple ties are timeless, versatile, and elegant. Neckties come in many distinctive shades of purple, such as royal purple, violet, lilac, and lavender, making sure there is a perfect shade for any occasion.
Purple is recognized as the "color of the rich", referring to the times when a purple dye was so expensive that only royalty could afford it. Nowadays, even though the purple dye is not more expensive than other dyes, the correlation sticks, and many still consider purple as a highly luxurious color.
We have put together a list of the most popular purple ties to inspire you and help you find the perfect purple tie for you. Whether you're looking for an elegant dark purple business tie or an easy-going light purple tie for summer parties, our list has you covered.

A dark purple tie looks great with black, grey, and navy blue suits, as well as burgundy suits. Dark purple is associated with royalty and nobility more than light purple, and that is one of the reasons why dark purple is the most popular shade of purple when it comes to neckwear.
Wearing a dark purple tie makes you appear intellectual, powerful, and passionate. If you're looking for a tie to an important occasion, such as a business meeting or a cocktail event, where you want to come across as an elegant and confident person, a dark purple tie is a top choice. Remember to add a classy pair of cufflinks and a tie clip to finish off your look.

Where a dark purple tie can make you seem confident and even a bit intimidating, a light purple tie shows you are kind, easy to approach, and emotionally intelligent.

Both hues are between blue and red, with violet closer to blue and purple closer to red.
Violet and purple are beautiful colors, both associated with wealth and royalty. You just need to decide which one you like the best. And, if you can't decide, it is, of course, acceptable to own a tie or two in both colors. However, it is worth understanding that a violet tie compliments a man whose complexion has cool undertones better than a purple tie.

How many colors the tie has and the contrast between the colors defines if the tie is sophisticated or too loud.
