    What color shirts are safe to wear with pink chinos? I was told white was the only safe color to wear. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks again..

    Pink, did you loose a dare? No offense, I have no problem with salmon colored shirts, but chinos. And by the way, they are never pink, they are salmon on a man.

    If you're already wearing pink pants, I don't think now is the time to start worrying about being ostentatious.

    White would be most suitable I think.

    Light blue and light beige (not light yellow) might work also but the combination of pastels might make one look like one's in nursery.

    In what context? Where do you plan on wearing them?

    I wore a light blue shirt with pink pants just last Saturday. I have no idea why you'd restrict yourself to just white. Who gave you this idea?

    As a fellow New Englander, I too have a pair of Nantucket Red (aka pink) chinos, and as the weather warms up I'm excited to start wearing them again.

    I wear them with white button downs, and white or black polo shirts. I tried light blue, but felt the end result looked a little too colorful and cartoon like.

    I work in a department store and asked one of the people who dress the display models and he told me light blue.
