There are certain fashion rules that were passed down to me when I was younger that still guide me today: don’t wear shoes you can’t walk in, and if you want to show some skin, choose either your legs or cleavage, but never both, for example. Another was that red and pink are colours that do not go together.
Well this season, it’s become clear that some rules are meant to be broken! Street style stars have embraced this unexpected colour combination with aplomb, proving to all of us just how chic it really can look. Perhaps it’s just the latest variation of the colour-blocking trend of seasons past, but pairing pieces in solid red and pink now seems bold, modern and refreshing.
If you’re a fan of wearing bright colours, then this trend should be right up your alley. Remember that just updating your accessories is one of the easiest – and most cost-effective – methods to try out new trends. So if you’re planning to wear your favourite red dress, skip the nude heels and pair it with bright pink ones instead. However, if you tend to opt for a more neutral palette, consider softening the look by adding denim, white or black pieces to your ensemble.
