The general rule of thumb is that your tie width should match your lapel width. A color that bridges the high contrast between your purple suit and white shirt is a good move. An off white suit and a pink shirt should not be worn with a tie.
If you are headed into a business or formal situation, we highly recommend going in a different direction with the suit. If yes what colour should I pick? Our rule of thumb is that your tie should always be a shade or more darker than your shirt. A black shirt has an inherently casual look that a tie will disrupt.

Dark shirts are pretty casual. Add the pindots and this shirt sounds even more casual. So we suggest an appropriately relaxed vibe in the tie, like a knit. We suggest one with stripes like this to keep the look laid back but stylish. I have a solid color slim black tie. I want to buy a formal shirt for it. I already have black, blue, pink and white. I want some other color. The pant is very dark blue in color. Can anyone help me with this? A truly formal shirt would, nine times out of 10, be white.
Our advice, though, is to go easy on the bright colors with a black tie. Black creates such strong contrast it can make an otherwise appropriate shirt look a little clownish. Stick with whites, light grays and pale blue shirts for with a navy suit and black tie.
The darker a shirt the more casual it becomes. The more casual it becomes the less appropriate a tie looks with it. Save it for evenings and weekends with jeans and chinos.
