But with changing times, men are coming out more openly to embrace this colour.

Because pink has the power to make you look the most handsome person in the crowd without you having to do anything.
So, for all those men who love this shade, but are afraid to wear it, here are nine style tips for you to don pink this wedding season.
'Pink is no black' that it would suit anyone and everyone. Hence, it is very important to know which colour suits your skin tone well. Else, the colour will not only fail to make you look manly, but it may also make you look ugly.
The shade guide: Usually, men with fair skin can don any shade of pink in a manly way. Darker skin tones should opt for shades of light pink. Pale skin suits very light colours of pink that have an element of grey or a pinch of black in it.
Apart from picking the right shades of this colour, another important thing about donning pink in a virile way is to also choose the correct pattern of your shirt, t-shirt or even ethnic wear. The different type of collars and fitting of the shirt also plays a pivotal role in making the pink look good on your body.
Colours like black, navy blue, Persian blue, grey, etc., complement different shades of pink and can make a man look macho. A pink shirt can be paired with trousers in navy blue, charcoal, silver, tan, cream and white to look best. If worn correctly, it leaves you with a stylistically modern and masculine look.
There are varied shades of pink, and there is a shade for every occasion. For the wedding, you can choose shades of light pink with embellishments and attractive embroidery. For the reception gala, one can easily don a magenta or a rose pink shirt with a light shaded trouser and a tie to complete the look.
If you are shy to take the bold step, then start with a few tiny ones. If not a pink shirt, then ties and scarves in pink are what men can play around with. And, if you feel the confidence to flaunt entire attire with pink, then go for ties in the shades of blue, purple, red and grey to look great for a reception party.
Choose your prints that complement your physique and dimensions, well. For a healthy person, wearing horizontal prints can make them look even more bulky. But, there are prints that suit every man and his features. Pink shirts in check print look extremely classy and chic. You can also opt for faint horizontal prints on your classic pink suit for a Christian wedding with contrast accessories.
