STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Men in Pink

Uncategorized

Up until the 20th century pink was most definitely a male colour, boys were traditionally dressed in pink since it's a derivative of what was thought at the time to be the most masculine colour of all, red. Don't think pink is just for the ladies, pink is a very versatile colour and when worn correctly is perfect for summer months. 

This week's Fashionisto proudly wears his pink, his pastel pink cotton blazer with a cobalt cardigan and strange loose knit jumper is great for summer, he keeps a smart theme with brogues and matching pink socks. The colour combinations keeps things casual, while his plaid scarf and baggy fingerless gloves give the outfit extra flair. 

Pink is a perfect summer afternoon option since the colour is light and calming, t the easiest way to work pink into the wardrobe is with some button down shirts, try this Oxford Shirt from Selected or this Lyle and Scott Polo, subtle pinks are much fresher and don't look like you're trying to get a reaction by wearing a slightly more feminine colour. This dip-dyed Benson Degraded Polo with white shorts, beige chinos or even light wash denim will always look fashionable. 

This week's Fashionisto has adapted the blazer to his own personal style with his acessories, however when looking for a summer suit replacements keep accessories to a minimum. Try to keep accessories rich and luxurious in colour, red, grey and black ties in particular create perfect focal points when matched with a  crisp white shirt. Keep your trousers either black or white when matching with a peach coloured blazer and you'll have perfect summer suit.
