7 Reasons Why Men Should Embrace Pink

Published

on

pink

 

Pink and blue weren’t originally gender-specific colors in the earlier times. The color has caused major stigma around the specificity of gender. But the real question is who defined it to be girly? Also who said that men should not wear the color? We are in the 21st century. A major change has to bought about this. We give some major reasons why more men should embrace the color.

1. Pink Used To Be Masculine 

Via The independent

History tells us that pink wasn’t always a feminine color. Men were known to wear silk suits that had floral embroideries. Those outfits were considered very masculine at that time. History also mentions how the color was considered a warlike color since it was resembling red. This fashion and way of thinking got lost as society changed over time. The early 1900s saw the very first pink dress shirt. It become a hit. It was initially meant to target female students but it caught on more with college guys.

 

2. Don’t Follow The Society’s Norms

Via mankind

If there’s anyone to blame for making it a girly color, it’s the clothing businesses. They made that decision before most of us were even born. Parents started to know a child’s sex from an earlier age. So companies capitalized on this and introduced gender-specific clothing. This would mean that parents could no longer hand down a baby girl’s clothes to a baby boy and vice versa. They’d have to buy a second set. So the tradition of pink is for girls and blue is for boys began.

 

3. Pink Catches Women’s Attention

We know women adore pink. It appears they’ve always loved it even when it was considered masculine. But did you know our biology can sort of explain why? A recent study reveals that the color of girls clothing and toys might’ve been caused by innate bilogical preferences. Among people who like the color blue, women lean towards reddish-purple hues of blue while men prefer greenish-yellow ones. So you want to attract a woman by wearing the color.

 

4. You Stand Out From Crowd

Pink has been used to represent power. Ribbons were given to those who ran in the New York survivor race in 1991. A year later, the same kind of ribbon became the official symbol for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It was said other events throughout the ‘90s and 2000s brought out a fierce character to the color. So you actually portray a very powerful image in the color. Be a different person and set your own path.

 

5. It Goes Well With Most Colors

It is a versatile color. The fact is any skin tone works with some shades of it. Men with darker complexions look good in lighter shades such as barbie, cherry blossom and lavender. Meanwhile guys on the fair side can go with deeper shades like purple rose and hot pink. Choosing a right shade of the color is essential as it could either build or break the entire attire. Aside from picking the right shade, wearing it requires steely self-esteem.

 

6. Pink Works Well For Formals

Via Xacus

Pink makes a great addition to outfits that have brown, khaki, monochrome or dark shades of blue. That’s why it’s appropriate for both formal and casual styles. If you’re more not comfortable, experiment with smaller, subtle pieces that are worn away from the skin such as a pocket square or a pair of pink socks. Another easy option for injecting some personality into formal attire is a pink tie. It is a sure way to up your game.

 

7. Casuals Are Fun Too

Via Pinterest

Pink is also a romantic color. It’s a blend of red and white which combines passion with purity. So it’s no surprise that many weddings incorporate pink neckties for the groom and groomsmen. Spring and summer are the perfect seasons to be out wearing pink. The sun makes it pop out some more and you feel great in it. Try pairing a pink polo shirt with blue jeans, or a pink Oxford shirt with white chinos. These combos allow the color to stand out and give off that warm, youthful vibe.

 

So wear pink with pride. Let’s save this color from the stigma that came out of business greed. When it’s worn the right way pink makes any good style an awesome one. Also read- 5 Must Own Jeans For Every Woman
