Pink dress shirts?

Thoughts on (light) pink dress shirts (for men), as opposed to only traditional white / blue for guys in banking?

Pale pink is great..actually wearing one at the moment ;)

Pastel colors is the key (Light blue, pink, white)

I'd say that pale pink is pretty traditional, maybe only slightly less traditional than solid white or blue and on par with blue/white stripes.

Smooth sailing - I love the pale pink. Pale pink is the operative color here of course, pastels and deeper colors obviously don't work in a professional setting.

Pale/lighter pinks are great and go well with a navy/dark blue suit. Try to make your wardrobe as modular as possible. Maximize how much matches and it will take you much further.

Greys, pink, white, light and navy blue, charcoal (sometimes), etc :)
