I would even go farther and state that wearing fun pink accessories (socks, scarf, tie, bracelet) or something with a dash of pink in the fabric would be great. I would also provide a bunch of inexpensive pink accessories (such as Mardi Gras beads, or ribbons or pins) so that everyone could join in the fun.

I'm a woman and I don't have anything pink in my wardrobe and I bet that very few men have a lot of pink clothes, either.

I think a pink shirt looks great on men. But few will wear it except the OP. I"m a woman and don't like pink for me, doesn't work with my skin tone.

Agree with those saying decorate with pink. But let the guests come as they want.

Then you'll be sitting at your party all by yourself. You sound like a 7 year old girl!

Be a host not a dictator! People should be having fun at a party. This sounds incredibly stifling. If you encourage me to wear anything in particular, I'm not coming. You're not my mother. I'm not 5 years old. I am an adult and fully capable of picking out clothes to wear. In fact, I do this every day twice a day!

Maybe Molly Ringwald will show up in her famous prom dress from 'Pretty in Pink'?

I think you can "pink your brains out" on decorations and food, and request that guests wear something pink, but assure them it is optional.
If my husband and I were invited to such a party, it would be no big deal for him to wear a pink bow tie or a shirt with pink in it.

This is true. I seldom wear it.

I was strongly encouraged to wear something Hawaiian to a do once, and man that was hard. I feel that for casual affairs, dress requirements are a pain. I do agree that with pink docorations, and you wearing pink, you will stand out. Do that.

You work with people who are obsessed with a specific color?! I can't think of a single person I've known in real life who was obsessive over a color like the OP is.

That has nothing to do with the OP. I doubt his pink obsession has to do with Peter Pan, or what little boys wore over 100 years ago.

And only Michael wore pink, John had on a white nightshirt.
