Pink is such a girly colour. Well, that’s because our minds are trained that way. From the moment we are born, boys wear blue and girls wear pink. However, we can all truly come together and say. That real men wear pink. That stereotypical pink taboo wardrobe phobia that men once had is no longer to be seen or heard.
I can’t believe it when I am trying to style some men. The moment I bring out anything pink they have a fashion meltdown. So it’s time I decide to encourage men from all walks of life and all shapes and sizes to get into pink. WHY? Well, why not?
Why Wear Pink?
It’s a bright color that looks damn hot on men most of the time. It is a feel-good color. We girls love men in pink because it shows the strength of their character. Does it mean they are not afraid of what other men think? There are different shades of pink and therefore it can come across as very masculine.
Just look at Daniel Craig in No Time To Die, launch last night. Dashing in pink velvet.
How dashing does he look in pink velvet at 50? When buying a velvet jacket go up a size. Or opt for a tailoring jacket well worth the investment. Even if it does not reflect a tougher side of you. Who cares, it’s clear that you are a man anyway? I mean wearing pink as a man does mean you’re not a man? What’s the worst-case scenario that could happen if you wore pink? Your mates ditch you, make fun of you and laugh.
Define the Colour Pink
Dark, light, dusty, and bright, is very flattering on a man. All you have to think, Pink is a colour that states dynamite. It’s such a versatile colour that goes with other staple pieces within your wardrobe.
Denim jeans and any kind of chino design, look fabulous with dusty pink.
Trending, sugar-pink tuxedo with satin lapels and matching satin cummerbund over a plain white shirt accessorised with shiny black patent slip ons.
Would you wear this for your wedding day?
This is a great start to get your head around this colour. To begin with a handkerchief, underwear or a tie. Even a pink watch. Then as you get used to the colour then go for bigger clothing items. Such as shirts, let alone shoes. When and if you’re a man that is not afraid of pink then go for the suit.
It’s always safe to layer pink with other colours. To get confident in wearing the colour.
Pink trousers or corduroy is a fabulous combination to team with a blue linen blazer. For a more rugged look, grow a beard.
