Pink To Make The Boys Wink

Pink clothes and accessories are often associated with little girls. Pink is flattering and it is a very feminine colour to wear. Pink clothes and accessories have a place in any women’s wardrobe regardless of their age; it can look very good in most women; you just need to find the right shade that suits your skin tone and the right accessories to dress up or down your pink outfit. Wear it with black, which is always chic and in, and it never looks outdated.

The pink and black combination is a dateless combination. It is not just a fashion trend but it is more of a solution to dress up or down and outfit. Just topping off an all black look with vibrant pink accessories, is definitely a fun way to stand out.

For older women or women who need to dress for office work adding a pink accessory to a black outfit –like a scarf, a jacket, a trench coat, a computer bag or shoes- is a way to keep up with fashion, looking modern without looking like a fashion victim.

What Shade Of Pink Should I wear?

  • For warm skin tones, that is golden or olive skin with green or dark eyes; warm pinks (with a touch of orange) and earthy pinks (with a touch of brown) look great.
  • For cool skin tones a bold pink and pinks with a hint of blue in it are the best.
  • Most skin tones look great in fuchsia.

Dresses In Pink And Black

Pink dresses are very feminine and there is a whole range of pinks to choose from according to your age, your skin tone, your mood, and the impression you want to leave. To take off the “little girl” edge off pink; add thick black accents. Wearing a pale pink working dress with black accents will look elegant. Wearing a hot and bright pink dress with black accents will definitely turn heads!

Very young women can get away wearing most shades of pink, from a very pale, almost nude pink to bright bold fuchsia.

Older women will look better in soft shades of pink as the bright shades can accentuate wrinkles and expression lines on the face and neck.

If you want to wear pale and pastel pinks it is better if you match it with a neutral tone like black. Matching a pastel pink with another pastel colour will make you look “too cute”.

If you are determine to wear bright pinks and fuchsias regardless of your age, a touch of fuchsia on a black outfit will be better than a whole fuchsia dress.

Wear The Color Of The Moment: Pale Pink

If you have a fair complexion and fair hair, the pink lace dress on the left is the best bet for you. This pale, pastel pink will suit you as it will bring out your complexion. Also notice that wearing your fair hair down and loose works wonders for this type of pink.

To counterbalance the pink shade’s inherent sweetness with an innovative, modern silhouette you can pair your pale pink dress with black pumps. Black shoes will help create a modern and polished look.

If you are not sure about wearing top-to-toe pale pink but you like the pale pink trend, why not try small accents like a pale pink clutch bag, or pale pink shoes to add a touch of sweetness to your outfit.

Pink and Black Bikini

Pink and Black Swimsuits and Bikinis


Great news, wearing a pink swimsuit will instantly make you look more confident and will make stand out your tan. Just go for the best shade of pink to go with your skin colour. If you are already tanned, a bright pink or neon pink will give your skin a nice tone. You can pair your pink bikini with black accents for a stylish look.

Personally I like the neon pink shade for swimwear as it makes you glow on the beach or swimming pool.

How to Wear Pink and Black shoes

Wearing Pink and Black shoes can be a bit tricky but if done well, they can add a zest to a plain outfit. As a rule of thumb avoid strict color matching. It is preferable to wear your pink and black shoes when you wear a pink only or black only outfit. Avoid the one solid color from head to toe and you will look smarter.

Pink and Black Underwear


I have an special attacment to this combination. Pink always brings a romantic touch while black (specially black lace) has a "femme fatale" effect. Put the two toguether and you will have a very interesting mix, sweet and sexy at the same time.

Pink and Black Handbags


Pink and black handbags add a touch of fun to any black outfit. They also look great with jeans.

If you like matching up shoes and handbags and you have decided to go for a Pink and black handbag (I love the Gucci one on the right) your best bet is to identify the base colour (in this case pink) and co-ordinate accordingly. This means that with a pink and black handbag, then wear plain pink shoes. If there is more black than pink on your handbag, go for black shoes, the result will be more even and elegant.

Adopt the Biker Chic style

Biker Chic

I love this Biker Chic Style from Cosmo Girl Fashion.

Get the look with: bright Pink leather motorcycle jacket from Armani Exchange ($325). A black top and miniskirt or a black minidress and Black sneaker boots.

Pink And Black Make Up

Pink make up gives a very soft look. It looks fantastic on women with black eyes and dark hair.

Black make up enhances your looks and it is very sensual. Black eye lined eyes are mysterious and give and overall sexy allure.

Pink make up in a “nude” shade looks best during summer. Young faces benefit from a touch of pink eye shadow and pink lip gloss for a natural look. Young women can also dare wear very bright pink make up, something that older faces do not wear very elegantly as it looks too harsh on an aging face.

You can combine both pink and black in different shades to have different effects.

If you are young you can also try wearing black and pink nails. They look funky and brighten up any look.

For older women pale pinks are better as they are less harsh and flashy.

advoco: that's the main thing ;-)

Disturbia: if you want to try the pink&black look you can still try accesories like the pink and black shoes, or handbags in black with pink accents that won't clash with your hair colour.

designer: thanks for the visit

Monika: I like it too. I've recently got the black and pink dress (pencil skirt with high waist) it looks really chic!

Dazzling: It does, pink is somehow related to fairy tales and princesses.

Pink is a very sweet color. It makes one feel bright and happy. I especially like the black and pink shoes which you have shared. They are so beautiful and gives the wearer a "princess" feel.

My daughters love the pink and black combination, especially my youngest who is a complete girly-girl shoe-freak clothes-a-holic. They are both blondes and look adorable in that color combo. I on the other hand I am a redhead with very pale skin. I can pull off the black, but pink hates me with a passion.

threesweds: I think that pale pink looks great in dark coloured skin men.

The pink corsets you can find them on Amazon.com (there are direct links on the left of the pictures for some of them)


threesweds 7 years ago

Princessa, pink is definitely a very feminine color, however it too can be part of a man's wardrobe. Pastel pink is a popular color for men's shirts, slacks, neckties, and sweaters. When I wear a pink shirt, it brightens my day, especially if I am also wearing some very pink matching lingerie. A real stress relief!! Where can I find the pink corset with sassy black accents you show above? I love your hubs.

I definitely agree it is sad, but sometimes people need help with their makeup. I've seen females try really hard to do model-like eyeshadow, and it come across looking like a clown. But, it happens... :-/

Whitney05 : It is a shame that someone would be made fun of just because of the make up she is wearing.

JennifersJumpers: pink can be very cute -as in a little girl's dress- or it can be sexy or shocking as in some of the dresses above. I like a colour that can be all that! Thanks for stopping to comment.

I have to admit that pink is not a color that I didn't own a lot of. It just came over me all of a sudden that I didn't own pink and I had to go out and get some. Maybe it's becuase I sew children's clothing and pink and brown and pink and green seem to be all the rage. I guess I looked at pink so much that I had to have it. I just finished a black dress with pink polka dots and the ribbon to tie it closed will be pink with black polka dots. I am sure that dress will make some little girl happy.

I'm from a larger town, a military town, but boy-o-boy would she still look out of place, even with the crazies I've seen around town. She'd get made fun of severely if you ask me... There is a time and place to put that much makeup on, and it's not every day. Ha


Princessa profile image

Princessa 7 years ago from France Author

Whitney05 : I know what you mean. Me too I spend most of my time in a small town and one needs to dress and make up accordingly, otherwise it looks seriously out of place. I keep my most daring outfits for the city ;-)


Whitney05 profile image

Whitney05 7 years ago from Georgia

So I loved the eye makeup, but I really hope she doesn't go out like that one the regular. I'm pretty sure she'd get made fun of in my town. I've seen some people try to do runway makeup, and end up looking like clowns because they're not on the runway. That's what she would accomplish, even though it looked really good.

My former English teacher, Caroline Paskiewiez once claimed that red and black WERE ONLY FOR WHORES, BUT THE FUNNY THING WAS THAT THOSE WERE THE ONLY COLORS SHE WORE (OK she wore white sometimes too). Then, there was the "I'm going to New Zealand with my husband. It's summer down there and it's nice". Hm. I wonder what she could have meant. This was in 1999. OK, now, nearly 10 years later, I understand. Some very interesting ideas. Thumbs up

This is so timely because my daughter is a total pink fan and she just now got into black. There is something about that combination that she totally loves especially with the deeper pinks almost rose color pink. I guess my baby girl has style (good for her cause I never had any lol). Great hub!!
