How to Wear Red and Pink

May 8, 2018 6:30 pm

Long gone are the days when clashing colours was considered a fashion faux pas. Remember when your bag had to match your shoes? How exhausting and boring!

Thankfully those days are over and in the past years, colour has become one of the main focus of some designer’s collections that have inspired, shops, celebrities and street stylers everywhere.


So! this Spring/Summer don’t get coloured shy and add fun colour combinations to your everyday looks. One easy take on the trend is by mixing red and pink. The hue is everything when going for this mix. If you want to go all in with this trend, try a scarlet red and fuchsia together, a perfect option for a night out. But It you prefer to tone it down a bit, a dusty pink and rusty red is a sophisticated option for a day at the office.

Like with everything in life, practice makes perfect, so try it out at home until you find your suitable match and when you do, oh then you will know you have reached your style climax!

How to wear it?

The street stylers are obsessed with the dashing suit with a twist: pink, slightly oversized and too cool to be classed as just ‘workwear’. Add a bright red t-shirt under it and voilà!, you are now officially a fashionista.


To pull of this trend is important to go for a suit that flatters your body shape. If you are an hourglass or a pear opt for suit trousers that have a straight leg with minimal details around the waist and a jacket that is slightly fitted. But if you have a straight/athletic figure and you want to add volume wear a suit with palazzo trousers and a jacket with shoulder pads that will add structure to your look.


A pencil skirt and a statement top: remember that statement sleeve top that you bought last year and thought could only be worn with jeans? Well, wear it with a pencil skirt and heels for a match made in fashion heaven.

An outfit that can easily go from day to night in an instant with the right accessories. Wear it with gold flat sandals for a day out or black heels for a sexy date night.

If you are feeling adventurous swap the pencil skirt for an asymmetric floaty midi skirt, or if you want to conceal your bottom half wear a gorgeous A-line instead.



Let’s face it, not everyone is a fan of bright colours, so if you want to introduce colour to your look but in small doses, opt for one bright piece of clothing and wear it with a contrasting accessory. Then just finish off the look with your favourite neutrals. You can bright up your monochrome look by adding a dash of red with the super trendy bum bag or a pair of sock boots and then add the contrast with a pink bomber jacket, smaller accessories like a pair of earrings or a scarf will also do the trick.
