Can You Wear Red with Pink?

Of course you can wear red and pink together! But just a few years ago, my answer would have been no. Well, at least I wouldn’t have worn it. For too many years red and pink together was considered a no-no and that “rule" got stuck in my head for a long time...

I wore my red pants with a pink turtleneck and a red and pink scarf a few weeks ago on a very windy day, and I wore the same outfit again yesterday for International Women’s Day.

  1. Don't you just love this blogging journey for the fact of breaking all the rules, Andrea!!
    These colors look fabulous together. It does make me wonder how that rule got started in the first place??

    1. Yes! Breaking the rules and rethinking what works and doesn't work is great! And, yes, I have no idea where all the rules came from...

  3. I'm usually hesitant in mixing red and pink but I guess it depends on the shades. Like your outfit, if the pink is really pale then it works. It looks great the way you have styled it with the black accessories and the print of the scarf that brings the two colors together.

    1. Good point, Nora! It does depend on the shades of red and the pink. I actually first started wearing pink and red together because the scarf has both colors in it...

  9. Red and pink do work so well together. They play together beautifully like you have done here with the lighter pink/bright red combo and I also like to pair bright pink with red...it's fun and happy!
