Over 50 shades of pink
From the mixture of red and white came a range of shades of pink to suit all tastes. For being a warm color, the industry created clear nuances for the adult universe, like: pink tea, pink pastel, peach, salmoncoral and terra cotta. These colors can and should be used in the male wardrobe, in straight and structured cut suits.
In the middle are the warm colors for the daring: cherry, carmine, amaranth and dark pink. The more open tones like pink, magenta and fuchsia are appealing and dispensable if the idea is not to overshadow your partner in the ceremony, or you can bet on more discreet complements, like ties in these colors.
While the light tones are reminiscent of love and more in tune with the outgoing, the darker shades suggest seduction and seriousness. If man wants to use the palette in a more discreet way, the options are the shades that come close to the wine color, such as marsala, crimson, cardinal, burgundy and bordello.
Pink combines directly with neutral and cold colors, such as: white, black, beige, gray, blue, green and lilac, as seen in wedding party decorations. With the suit, for being an outfit of two pieces – pants and blazer – the rose is well harmonized with white, black or brownwhich highlight the main color of the look without getting too much. These colors are also recommended for grooms who wish to have the whole look in a pink tone, so they can balance details such as shoes, belt and shirt.
- White shirt works with any nuance of pink of the suit, it is classic and “breaks” the tone with neutrality;
- You can choose not to wear the tie if the wedding is in the country, rustic and daytime. If you are interested in the accessory, we suggest the white or black tie, butterfly type or traditional, for the light palette suit. Dark suits have the option of a grey tie as well;
- Black belt if the shoe is black, and the same for brown. It can be without a belt and/or with a suspension in these tones;
- The shoes can be brown, black or white (if you don’t wear a belt), and you can also stick to the sneakers to get detached;
- The boutonnière can have a flower similar to the pink bridal bouquet, or put a silver or gold brooch in place
Style of the big day and the pair
The groom who doesn’t want to wear the full suit can wear the pink blazer, with shirt and pants beige or white, for daytime celebrations on the beach. In fact, a seaside celebration on the beach with rustic wedding decoration or navy is the best place for the groom to wear pink. If the sea is not on the planes, the countryside is also an excellent setting for the look that mixes retro and romantic style.
The homoafetive couples can wear the same look, a charming choice for the dayor you can bet on two shades of pink with the same accessories, such as the flower of the lapel or the ties. For heterosexual couples, women can stick to a white bridal bouquet complemented by a pink flower or several of different shades, and to match the pair, they can also have some tone accessories such as shoes or earrings. The wreath in place of the veil will match the partner’s look. Just see if the pink colour talks to something the other will wear.
Just as women are dedicated to the choice and details of a wedding dress, men deserve equal attention with their costumes. There are colour options that transform any traditional look into a modern one, with fashion and elegance information. The pink shades are here to give more authenticity to male looks.
