Pink – that colour most men are unsure about, scared of or maybe they secretly love it! The truth is, real men wear pink! It’s likely that many guys already have a shade or a tinge of pink in their wardrobe – a stripe in a tie, a colourful sock, or even a shirt that is so pale pink, it could be white! This season it’s time to embrace the pink and this is the 3-step guide on how to do it:
The rule of thumb – guys on the lighter side should go for strong, deep tones of pink to avoid being washed out. The opposite goes for darker skin tones; try light pink shades such as salmon or baby pink, which will contrast against the skin. It’s the juxtaposition of strong and soft that work so well.
For those unsure of this new hue, try dashes of pink to become accustomed to this new style game. A flash of pink in a tie or a shirt print will still signal a style leader, but possibly allow the pink to wash over you slowly.
Think of pink as a highlight colour – it acts to brighten and lift any outfit. This is not the colour to wear head to toe. Rather it should be paired with more stable colours like navy or grey to keep it feeling masculine yet fresh. The rule is to build around the pink with seasonal colours and if all else fails, wear it with denim!
