Never Stay Sober Teaches You How To Pink On Street

Don’t we all have those days when no matter how productive we might wanna get, we end up blowing it up? Finally! the weekend is here & somehow your boy is managing to control his ‘drunk lungs’ to be able to write this pastel story, sitting in a coffee shop with a hungover head. Life priorities: Blog before hoes.

Okay! It’s physically hurting. Meanwhile taking a break from whining about the first world problems I’m brawling with, let us have a look at today’s stimulating outfit.

RANT- PINK ISN’T FOR MEN :

” Hey! What are you wearing? Is that your sister’s?

The common salutation a 5 year old in pink t shirt receives by that snooty aunty.

Is *it* a girl or a boy? Oh we were sure she was growing up to be a weirdo the moment she put her hands on those bomber jackets.
So when a boy picks up that one pink t shirt and the social stereotypes are doing their best to make him keep it back down… we need to understand that it’s not just ‘cute’ anymore.

Pink isn’t just cute . It’s fucking noticeable.

And it’s so blatantly there that people just assume that the idea of gender-colour stereotypes is perfectly fine. ACA-NO.

And it takes strength as a little kid or a grown man to walk in through and put fingers on those millennium pink jeans in a store. It takes greater strength to wear them out on the roads and being called a fairy. – Fairer than your soul, at least.

And while pink has evolved to be the colour for rebellion amongst the younger boys, we can all remind ourselves that pink was, in fact, a boy’s colour. Inherently perceived as the derivative of red, it was embraced for the pride and strength of masculinity.

While I fail to understand what went wrong along the way, I can at least confirm that pink is, without doubt, the new black. To stand up for who you are. And let your pink-ass-fucks be in the face of who you are expected to be.
When you think pink is just another expression for a ‘femme’ side, stop to think. India is refusing to bend to let trite stereotypes. Pink is the fuck you to years of repression, pink is embracing the femme, pink is delicate and pink is refusing to be weak, pink is more.

And pink is just another colour. ”

Styling tips– Try pairing it up with a cropped tee or an open layered oversized shirt. I’m rocking it with a scoop neck black tee from Koovs to make it look subtle yet badass.

Things you need to keep in mind:

  1. Use only mild detergent to wash or dry clean your distressed jeans, you definitely don’t want to go through a heart wrenching experience, trust me.
  2. Keep it away from sun & don’t iron it more often. (personally, it looks best when crushed)
  3. Turn inside out before washing or drying.
  4. Don’t wear extreme distressed trousers when you’ve got to do a lot of physical activities, you might end up being naked (almost).

Pull off pink (or a unicorn horn, whatsoever) like you own it & give a tight slap of sarcasm the next time some basic, random douche intervenes in your business.
