Pink is the colour to be spotted in this season. But wear it right to avoid a fashion blunder writes Indu Sunder

Well Aerosmith definitely made the fashion pundits happy when he crooned “PINK is my favourite crayon”. Pink has definitely come of age. It is by far the hottest,most versatile colour in the palette. This season sees pink in many forms, from the sweet baby pastel pinks to the neon hot pinks. Pink is also a hit on Indian skin tones and compliments our love for colour. And men, it is no longer restricted to the women’s wardrobe, pink is very much in for you guys too if you choose the right shade.And that brings us to how to make Pink work, here’s how…

Get it right

Pink works well when paired with a neutral shade like khaki, denim, white or cream. But remember not to pair mid range pinks like pastel shades with white. Instead mix soft blush pinks with a cream or khaki, more prominent or darker tones. And for louder pinks like hot pink add a bit of grass green for that extra spunk and sober it down with denim, to give a bold yet commercial look. Pink with pastel shades, like baby blue and cream yellow are a no-no, too cutesy.

Similarly, dark shades of pink like neon pink with black are also a big no as they look too dated. And guys remember choosing the wrong shade of pink can make you look a butterfly, not quite what you’d like. Pick worn out, dull shades of pink, like a mélange cream of tomato or a crisp fresh pink with your khakis and denims to give you that great summer look. Try these tips and you’ll not go wrong with the hottest colour in fashion.
