I clearly remember my mom telling me back in the nineties to never ever wear pink and red together as “those two colour just don’t mix“. It’s true, the nineties (probably the eighties too) did not look kindly on the pink and red combo – it was a massive faux pas. It was something the 10 year-old me could not understand – I thought it look pretty!
However, in the last decade or so the uptight, and frankly unreasonable, unspoken rule about the combination of reds and pinks has softened. Once again it is trendy to marry red and pink! And today I am overjoyed as nothing makes me happier than this punchy colour combo! Mmm, it reminds me of candy – it’s a deliciously edible duo. So, for your enjoyment, fest your eyes on the following pink & red colour-coded inspirations…
