Such a hue and cry about the pink hue!
My 14-year old son—a teen like any other (God help us!)—has a penchant for the color pink. He thinks it’s very cool to flaunt the color in a world that expects teenage boys to have reservations about wearing pink. Teenage rebellion? No idea!
My son’s soccer shoes are a shocking pink and he carries a pink bag that matches the color of his shoes. Small bracelets and hair ties—especially pink—that belong to my eight-year old daughter are sneaked away at times by her older brother, but rest assured my daughter isn’t coy about owning the blue hue that is supposed to belong to boys!
My husband and I look up to a friend in Hong Kong, who has always impressed us with a novel sense in fashion. When he decided to switch to bright colors—pinks and yellows and oranges—he carried it off with such ease that my husband decided to buy a shirt of bold pink, and I so loved it!
I have always loved pink on men, and realized that my husband did own two very stylish pink ties that he probably overlooked all these years. I think we are well past conservative notions that associate colors with gender, and cheers to that! Gotta go grab that hot pink sweater for my son right now! I know he will look as handsome as ever in it.
