To most fashionistas surprise and perviously known as one of the biggest fashion faux pas, pink and red are the hottest colour couple this coming spring. This year, even bolder shades of pink and fuchsia were incorporated by designers such as Oscar de la Renta and Coach 1941 in the SS18 collections. Stolen from Valentine's day, combining your items from this colour duo can take your spring look to the next level and here's you guide to pair the two.
SHOP THE LOOK
Take Baby Steps
If you're still not convinced about this color combo or don't think you can pull it off, take baby steps. Try a red lipstick or red statement earrings with a pair of hot pink boots, or can try a color-blocked sweater or shirt in red and pink which has done the work for you. After you start feeling comfortable go bold and incorporate these two shades from head-to-toe!
Incorporate Neutral Accessories
Matching items in red and pink with bold accessories in neutral colors, like black or white creates a more balanced look. Also, accessorizing is the ultimate secret in turning a look from great to stunning! I personally love statement pearl earrings as they go with everything and the never go out of style. Pair a pink blouse and a red leather mini skirt with big bold pearl earrings to try out this 80's influenced trend!
Stick to Minimal and Solid Patterns
To put these two shades in the centre of attention when it comes to your look while lessen the load of deep cherry and marshmallows, avoid intricate patterns and stick with solid ones to create a more fierce look.
Clashing shades once a fashion abomination is a hot trend specially for spring. One thing to consider when it comes to pairing your pieces is always to go with what makes you feel comfortable but don't forget to embrace your individuality and fierceness!
