Depending on your style, taste and nerve, you can play around with the endless options of shirts and accessories. For example, Pink compliments colours such as Burgundy, Grey and Navy and Blue goes hand in hand with brighter colours such as Red, Orange and Pink.

Make sure you get the right colour tone and fit

Thomas Pink offer a selection of different fits including slim, classic and athletic. When picking colour tone, keep in mind that lighter tones such as pastel Pink or light Blue are likely to be more complimentary to fair skin, whereas darker tones such as Navy are likely to be more complimentary to darker skin.
