Remember humming to Aerosmith’s….Pink it’s my new obsession…..Pink it’s the colour of passion…’Cause today it just goes with Fashion…

What do some of the popular celebrities Matthew McConaughey, Robert Downey Jr., Charles Bartholomew (aka Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl), Brad Pitt, Will Smith, Ian Somerhalder (aka Damon from Vampire Diaries) have in common: Found Sporting Pink!

So what’s all the fuss with ‘Men in Pink’?pink shirts for men

All of the above mentioned stalwarts of pink have been described with either or all of the said adjectives like ‘Rugged’ ‘Powerful’ ‘Suave’ ‘Debonair’ ‘Hot’ by their fans and critics.

In fact, in the 18th century, it was considered masculine if a man was found sporting a pink silk suit with floral embroidery.

At Vitruvien, we take pink seriously.  Pink is one of the most flattering yet elegant colours, lending a certain panache to the man who boldly sports it. Men with olive to dark tan skin tones look good with dark shades of pink, while men with lighter skin tones can carry off baby to light pink hues well.

Here are some ‘How to Wear Pink’ styling pointers that are a must!

Power Pink: A solid tailored pink shirt with a classic collar and french cuffs inside an all grey suit teamed with a silk check tie and you’re ready to crack that business deal.

Pink Busy @ Work: Notch it down a bit, wear a dark shade of pink with a tall spread collar with black trousers and a black striped tie. Or try a light pink shirt with minute checks teamed with grey trousers and a grey silk tie.

Unwinding with Pink: Headed out for drinks with the boys? Grab a pink linen shirt with stripes, sporting a short spread or Chinese collar, worn out with a pair of skinny jeans or slim fit pants.

On a Dreamy yet Casual Date with Pink: Look dapper with a slim fit baby pink shirt with button down collar combined with a grey tweed and blue denims. Nothing says rugged, debonair and charming than this.

But it doesn’t end here.  You get to custom-make your own shirt from the scratch, to create your own sizzling ensembles with Pink. Because at Vitruvien, we pride ourselves on customer delight and satisfaction.
