Why can't Boys like Pink?

Well as according to this article... http://www.divaasia.com/article/2028 I do agree that it's alright if boy likes doing some feminine stuff but somehow, the inside me do frown and my radar would be on FULL ALERT. I might be stereotyping and a little too rigid in my "traditional" thinking. What about you?

I think it's just culture that assigns pink as a "girly" color so there's no reason boys can't like it and little boys often do. Personally, I don't really like pink so I wouldn't want to wear it -- and even if I did like it, I'd probably avoid it just because I don't like making fashion statements. It's all just current culture, though. I wouldn't automatically make an assumption about someone just because they wore pink.

well, for pink... boys don't like pink because people say it's girly ! simple as that. if it wasn't known as a girly color you'd see men wearing pink skirts ! as for boys doing feminin things ........ i dont agree with that (for most stuff)

Hi regal_aeros In our country,anybody can wear any color. There is no separate color for boys and girls. As long as you like any color,you can wear it. This is only in few countries like U.S ,the pink is reserved for girls. In fact I had a pink shirt myself.Of course it was gifted to me.But I had no problem in putting on that shirt. Happy mylotting

Well, a while ago, it was fashionale for guys to wear pink. My husband has some great work shirts that are pink. When our daughter was born, he wore a pink abercrombie t-shirt. It is a good colour on him. So go for it guys!

There is something alluring about pink. Maybe that’s because psychologically it is known to have a calming effect. Or maybe it’s because pink is complimentary to most skin tones, unless you already have a lot of pink tone in your skin (like me). Or maybe it’s because a man who wears pink exudes confidence, yet is sensitive. It could be as simple as the fact that pink is easy to coordinate with almost every color in your wardrobe--it goes amazingly well with greys, tans, black, navys and other blues tones. And lastly, if you're still not convinced how great pink is, women love pink and are more likely to give you a second glance. So give pink a try if you haven’t already. I have outlined four ways you can incorporate this magical color into your wardrobe. Sweaters: If you haven’t seen the movie “Brown Sugar,” you need to just to see how great a pink sweater can look. In a party scene, the actor Boris Kodjoe wears a pink crew-neck cashmere sweater with dark trousers, and I must say it is such a sexy look. It proves how something as classic and simple as a pink sweater can be show stopper. Dress Shirts Pink dress shirts are one of the easiest ways to incorporate pink into your wardrobe. They are easily worn with suits, under sweaters or on their own with trousers or jeans. I will say that at my office there is a man who often wears pink dress shirts. He gets many compliments whenever he does because it breathes new life into his suits and makes him look more distinguished. It’s a winning look. Suits and Trousers: Spring and summer would be the time to wear pink suits and trousers. I know you may be having a hard time visualizing this, but when I say suits and trousers I mean seersucker or light cotton. It’s the perfect thing to wear at a summer wedding or party. Accessories and T-shirts: If you can’t commit to a more substantial item in pink, start small. Ties, t-shirts, hats (like a pink Kangol) or a scarf with pink stripes would be the way to go. men in pink are hot, and pink actually makes men look sexy. it don't matter how "ugly" you are, when you wear pink, there's always the glow that says "I have just arrived, you aint seen nothing yet". In this our world of "gay-ness", I think the color pink, has been assocaited with the gay men. And i think that's just an abuse to fashion. There's nothing like, Pink is for gay people or pink is for girls only. Pink is like totally for everyone. Also i thinkk when men dress in other colors and decided to add just a litte bit of pink to their outfit, makes them look smashing. Like having a Black tux, pink shirt and beautify your dressing with accessories: a nice pink glass(male one that is) would do. Add a pink tie to a dark suit. It'll make the outfit look more summery, and it'll make you look more confident. Overall, i think men should wear more pink. I've seen a lot of guys in pink and they are able to pull it off; although I think it takes a self assured man to wear it. I've seen it here in the work place as well. Men with pink suit shirts with a grey or dark blue suit looks good. I've also seen a shirt that says: Real men wear pink! I think pink is hot. Dont go all Pink-ish looking. Just a little bit of pink would spice up your dressing. A tie, a bow, A shirt, and those little accessesories.
