LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink

Let's Hear it for the Boys

Thinking about men wearing pink can go one of two ways. Either it can conjure up images of a man with rainbow hued hair and an extremely flamboyant magenta three piece suit, or an Ivy League boy with a blue pocket square and a pastel pink sweater around his shoulders. Two extremes? Definitely. But it doesn’t have to be!

This Fashionisto’s look stands on the perfect middle ground. It is both eye-catching and preppy, in equal measure. He is wearing a bright fuschia polo shirt with dark denim, a tan belt and black shoes. By wearing muted accessories and jeans, all the attention is focused on the shirt.

Pink is a feel-good color, and it channels feelings of tranquility and self assurance. It is an appropriate color to help break out of a style rut. If your dress shirt collection is wall-to-wall blue and white, it’s time to branch out.

Hint: If wearing too much pink is too Mean Girls for you to handle, it’s easier to start with smaller quantities. A pink accent is enough to add magnetism to an otherwise neutral outfit. Need a quick fix? Wearing a pink tie or a pink belt is a perfect way to begin the color. In fact, wear it enough and you’ll start wanting to wear it everyday (and not just on Wednesdays!).
