Red and pink, which never used be seen worn together have more recently become an acceptable colour combination. In theory they ‘clash’, but when mixed together in the right way they can make a real style statement.
This Spring 2017, there is not only a lot of red around but it is being combined with pink as a fashion statement. How you wear it depends on your personal Style Personality!
If you have a Dramatic Style Personality, the boldest statement you can make with this colour combination is to wear in block colours.
A red skirt worn with a pink top (or vice versa) is sure to make you stand out from the crowd and needs little else to finish off the look. Definitely one to try for you Dramatics!
Most of us will imagine a bright pink and vibrant red when we consider these colours, but remember you can opt for paler, subtler shades if you prefer. In fact, a Romantic Style Personality will love pretty pinks and the combination of red with pink.
Powder pink will work particularly well and looks beautiful when worn with a richer geranium red. Remember to top it off with a lipstick in your best pink whether it is a cool or a warm pink. Not sure what your best lipstick colour is? Check out our colour suggestions here.
A red or pink bag, shoes, belt or statement necklace are all greats ways of popping a bit of colour into your outfit, without it feeling too overpowering.
In particular, a colourful shoe or bag is a great item to add to your wardrobe as it can lift a simple monochromatic colour palette and give it real vibrancy and interest. Perfect for Creative Style Personalities but really, great for everyone!
Patterns are the perfect way of incorporating different colours into your outfit. You could opt for an oriental or floral pattern with shades of red, pink and other colours from your palette – a great choice if you love patterns!
The simplest way to add a colour ‘clash’… change your nail colour! Pink and red are both great shades to go for and can provide the subtlest of colour pops to your outfit.
Finish it all off with a matching lip to pull your whole look together.
