Boys at a very young age are taught that colours such as; blue, green. beige, grey and brown are masculine. Girls on the other hand are encouraged to wear bright colours like; pink, yellow, red, orange and purple. Children don’t actually associate colours with gender and given the choice all of them would select the brighter hues rather than the so called feminine colours and the boys masculine colours. It is only narrow minded adults that set the clothing rules, this is carried on to adulthood so if a man dares to wear pink, purple, yellow or patterned clothing they are considered to be pretty daring. Even today, in this so called open minded world, it still takes a a man with confidence in his masculinity to buy a pink shirt.
Fortunately fashion has not let narrow mindedness dictate colour choices for men so there is now a wide spectrum of colour choice for men to wear for many different occasions.
In The Red With New Balance
These stunning red trainers from New Balance are a great way to kick up the rainbow of bright colours a man can wear. There is absolutely no doubt that this alarming colour will alert everyone to your presence and your feet will never feel upstaged again.
Orange With Hilfiger Denim
These light orange and dark orange t-shirts by Hilfiger Denim add a lovely warm hue to any outfit and can be as subtle or as bold as you like.
Yellow Peril With Adidas
Admittedly finding bright yellow clothes for men has been quite difficult as many brands opt for the safe option of either a mustard or lemon hue. These two t-shirts from Adidas are completely eye catching and are so cool that the store has posted them up twice.
Green With John Lewis & Co
Trying to find a bright green jacket was particularly difficult as they are pretty rare. These two bomber jackets from John Lewis & Co represent how dull green can actually be. A dull more subtle green is obviously still more popular than a bright eye catching green because the khaki jacket is out of stock while the bright green one is on sale.
Blue With Jack & Jones
These blue chinos from Jack & Jones look a little bit like jeans but are just that little bit more formal and go with many other colours. Still they are quite dark and would perhaps look a little bit comical if they were a shade lighter and brighter.
Pink With Emporio Armani
We realise that pink isn’t strictly in the rainbow as one of the main seven colours but it does appear often in the spectrum of our lives. This pink t-shirt from Emporio Armani deserves to be on it’s own because it is one of the most shockingly daring shade of pink a man could choose to wear.
Purple With Original Penguin
To round off our multicoloured look into men’s fashion we have chosen these masculine purple t-shirts from Original Penguin. Everything about them is cool, including the colour.
These days it seems that everyone can wear whatever colour they wish or dare because all colours belong to everyone.
