Styling Tips 101: Pink In Menswear

From donning a pink shirt for a date to picking up that pink hand-embroidered sherwani, the color rules menswear as well.

Breaking the boundaries of false masculinity, today let’s talk about how ‘pink’ can become a go-to option for guys. It’s time we embrace pink in menswear and allow men to enjoy the shade’s vivacity.

1. For formal events

Grey, beige, white, and black have become blah. The concept of ‘work’ is already sad and why add to the sadness with such neutral shades? Bring in pink in menswear and revamp your formal wardrobe. You can pair the pink shade with any complementary one, without making the ensemble overwhelming. Opt for a baby pink (baby pink won’t affect your manly abilities) blazer and pair the same with neutral trousers. Go for beige or white trousers to adhere to formal etiquette.

2. For the weekend bash

Pink for parties? Pink for parties.
You have a Friday night clubbing scene with your friends and you need an ensemble that helps you stand out from the crowd. Enters, pink in menswear. For such occasions, you can go with a pink blazer and trousers, and pair them with a printed shirt underneath. You can go for a print that suits well with the pink palette or for a clashing shade to create desired contrast.

3. For dates

A look that’s equal parts sexy and comfortable. Whether your date goes as planned or not, the outfit sure would win hearts. You can go for a pink striped or printed button-down and pair it with denim. Another option could be with pink trousers, paired with a black shirt or some other shade from the complementary spectrum.

4. For a day-to-day affair

Keep it cool and stylish with pink in menswear. For the day affair, it is recommended that you keep the ensemble simple and comfortable. Go for a button-down and style it in a woke-up-like-this aesthetic. For the season of chills, a pale pink sweatshirt with denim and sneakers would be a smart option.

5. For Wedding

The star-crossed weddings have given us great styling lessons on bringing the pink color in the wedding sherwani. With tone-on-tone embroidery or other Indian hand embroideries, bringing pink to any wedding ensemble is easy. If you want to go for a western look, pink tailored blazer and trousers with a contrast pocket square would look just stunning.

‘Pink’ doesn’t need to be frowned upon. When the end goal is to turn heads with an impeccable sense of style, pink in menswear can play wonders. All you need are some good styling tips and GUTS.
