Real Men Wear Pink
Got the blues?
Get the pinks…
This is one for the boys. Guys, prepare to take notes cause we’ve got a fashion lesson you don’t wanna miss. Ready? Pink is sick. Red’s little sister is getting some serious cred and you don’t wanna miss out. Don’t believe us? Hop on board with the Beibs then. Not only is he rocking the pink vibes, he’s wearing Aussie label - and Fashion Week fellas - Double Rainbouu pink!
Rose, salmon, bubblegum, cerise – whatever you want to call it, pink is the new black. No… pink is errything! Here’s how to do it right...
Harry Styles has, er style. This pink ensemble, which he wore while belting it out on the Today show stage in New York City, is reserved for brave baes. The flared wonder is from Brit designer Edward Sexton.
The ‘millennial pink suit’ is draping the finest bods in Hollywood and beyond!
Effeminate? No way!
Wanna avoid looking too girlie? Opt for angular, tailored suits or jackets.
See Mr Cool, Bruno Mars himself for inspo.
This Bruno fan nails it…
Since most guys won’t touch it, those who do are bound to stand out and exude confidence. Lippy rock god, Mick Jagger, did it first – and best – in a '70s pink satin suit.
He also pulled off this casual pjs like a boss…
Add varsity-style to your wardrobe with pink polos and oxford shirts or chunky knit sweaters. Teamed with blue jeans, an outfit like this will keep you solid through a morning lecture right through to an afternoon delight.
Get it right with lots of layers and use pink to peekaboo through staple black and whites.
Work with your complexion, too. Like, if you’re super pale, a soft baby pink will make you look washed out at best and naked at worst. Pasty bros should go for deeper hues to avoid looking nude. You can’t go wrong with salmon and navy, and it works with most skin tones. Baby pink layered under white. Do it!
Pop of Pink
If a fuchsia three-piece suit still intimidates you, firstly, get over it. Secondly, start slow. Try pink socks, a tie, a pocket square, hat, or sunglasses first... a la Drake.
