From Cam’ron’s unforgettable pink get-up in the early ’00s to Kanye West’s pink polo days during his The College Dropout era, the color pink has long held a special place in the heart of menswear. The rosy hue has clearly had as much of an impact on the world at large, with the enduring millennial pink trend splashing collections far and wide since the beginning of the 2010s and well into the present day. And now with tailoring slowly but surely finding its way back into the forefront of ready-to-wear (move aside streetwear), it’s a prime time to experiment with a full-on pink suit as a vibrant change from drabby winter garb.
For the most dapper take on the trend, pieces like a classic blazer, fitted trousers, crisp button-up and coordinating loafers offer a timeless look. But it’s just as easy to take the formal mood down a notch by making a few simple swaps. Channel a more laid-back vibe by opting for a T-shirt over the traditional collared shirt, or give the outfit a more eclectic spin with the help of a colorful hand-dyed sweater.
Meanwhile, a pair of dependable sneakers or boots can help bring in an easygoing aesthetic all their own for those who haven’t quite tapped into the loafer movement just yet. Last but not least, a compact accessory such as a crossbody or belt bag is a stylish way to tie it all together stylishly.
Whether you plan to keep things formal or give it your own casual take, there are pink styles galore to help craft your next daring suit look. HYPEBEAST has rounded up a few options across blazers, trousers, shirts, shoes and bags to inspire your next outfit.
