The shirt and tie combo on the left is often worn by men ┬áIt’s a fashion look, not a power look. Furthermore, when you wear a black shirt with either a light tie or a dark tie, it imparts a gangster look.

Fashion looks are not board room or power looks. You may get compliments wearing a black shirt with a tie, but ask yourself who it was that complimented you.

If you work in an arena that is highly competitive, such as financial services, you will have higher credibility and trust with your clients wearing the shirt and tie combo on the right, This tie could also be worn with a French blue shirt for a less formal look.
