Real Men Wear Pink

The idea that any self-respecting man shouldn’t wear pink under any circumstances, is just as outdated as bell-bottoms and disco.

While you may be wary of trying on the decidedly “feminine” color, pink doesn’t have to be a scary experience. We’re not expecting you to go out and buy every piece of pink clothing there is, and we understand that incorporating pink into your wardrobe will take time.

Just hear us out, because Everyguyed is here to put your fears at ease about the cotton candy and bubble gum shade.

Where to Start

Like we said, we’re not expecting you to run out right away and buy the first pink thing you spot. We understand that pink probably isn’t the first color that comes to mind when buying a tie or shirt, but pink shouldn’t be excluded entirely.

Start with something small, a tie, socks or even a scarf just to add a bit of color to your outfit.

Something as subtle as a tie can help you garner the courage and compliments you need in order to branch into something bigger. Dare we mention a pink cardigan?

Tones of Pink

If you’re looking to make a big statement, you’re going to want to aim for bright pinks but in smaller doses.

Think bright pink ties for that surprise of color.

If you just can’t bring yourself to drawing that much attention to your wardrobe, stick to darker and more mature colored pinks. If you’re still iffy about incorporating pink into your wardrobe, start with the darkest possible pink and gradually get lighter until you feel comfortable with the color.

That way you’ll know what you’re willing to wear without feeling uncomfortable.

Matching Pink to Your Wardrobe

If wondering what to wear pink with is stopping you from actually purchasing something pink, then we’ve got you covered.

We admit that pink isn’t a staple color that will go with everything, but there are three colors that will compliment your pink apparel.

Black goes with everything and pink is no exception.

Try a black bowtie with your pink dress shirt for a great difference in contrast. Dark blue will also greatly compliment your pink attire, so think dark blue jeans with that pink polo.

Finally, we suggest a light colored pair of chinos that will go great with any sort of pink you decide you’re comfortable with. Now that we’ve given you three color combinations, incorporating pink into your style has never been easier.

Summary

  • Incorporating pink into your wardrobe doesn’t have to be a frightening experience. Starting small and subtle and working your way up can help you overcome this obstacle.
  • If you can’t bring yourself to wear bright pink, start with a light, pastel pink and go darker from there. Keep going until you feel comfortable enough.
  • Matching pink to camels, blacks and dark blues will help you incorporate it into your every day wardrobe.
