Bright colours are en Vogue
Wear pink and red it’s the in thing!
Pink and red combos are expected to big in 2018,expect the pairing to be ubiquitous if the catwalks at NYFW are anything to go by.
Brandon Maxwell and Calvin Klein showcased striking looks in pink and red and now I’m following the trend.

My favourite red and pink outfits 😍😍
Apparently wearing pink and red together was a huge no no as it was considered to be a faux pas, but it can look amazing. My favourite examples of it being rocked with aplomb are below:
Olivia Culpo slaying in Ungaro and Linda Farrow 😍😍
Rihanna looking cool in Prada
Zendaya shining in Vivetta
Lisa Hahnbück is goals 😍😍
For my interpretation I decided to partner a pink mini dress with a high waisted red skirt. I wanted a look that was vibrant, wearable and not too outlandish.
Both items were from AliExpress and were extremely inexpensive. My dress cost £6.52 from the Ladies Clothing boutique, it arrived within 3 weeks of my order and looks like the picture although it is just above the knee not a mini dress on me.
I could have worn a pair of red shoes and a red bag to complete the look but I decided that I wanted to colour block. I bought my red skirt 3 years ago as part of a co-ord, I think it’s a cute skirt and good quality especially as it was only £7.00. My seller no longer lists the item but I have included the link to another vendor. It’s the same price but read the reviews before buying. My skirt and dress are both small which is a UK 8-10.
To stay with the theme of bright colours I decided to wear my orange River Island Court shoes. I liked the overall look as pink and orange are derived from red and complimented each other nicely.
I chose to add a homemade gold belt to match my oversized gold leaf earrings. My earrings were a gift but if you want to replicate this look any large gold earrings will suffice.
My belt was made of a piece of gold lycra that I bought from a fabric store in Birmingham called Fancy Silk, the price varies according to length.

For those of you that would like a pared down version of the look add a monochrome shirt this way you can wear bold colours in a more conventional way. You could also wear a plain black shirt or jacket.
Jazz up a classic red, black and white outfit with a hint of pink
I bought my shirt 4 years ago from AliExpress it’s not on sale anymore but I’ve included links to similar shirts.
Both shirts are available in a range of sizes and colours.
To complete the look I threw on my Faux Fur leopard print cape. I’ve blogged about it before so have linked the post.
Now it’s your turn😘
If you want to try out the latest look I’ve selected a few items for you.
Asos are selling this gorgeous pink and red jumper that can be worn as a dress with tights.
Mix and match any of the Red and pink skirts and tops to get the look.
Wear black, gold, red or pink accessories to be stylish in this killer combination.
I really like the overall look and have plans to mix red and pink again as I have a number of items in both colours and I find the mixture refreshing.
