Contrary to popular belief, a pink dress shirt is as much a staple in a man’s wardrobe as a white dress shirt.

The key is in selecting the correct tone.

You want to carefully select a blush or rose color which complements the skin tone of most men, not a bright or bubblegum pink.

The greatest advantage of a pink shirt is that it softens the dark hues of navy, charcoal gray and black, where a white shirt being such a stark contrast may leave your appearance a bit washed out.

Now that you know what to look for in a pink shirt, let’s discuss what to wear it with…
