Red and pink is the new black and white

Jacket: Only, Top: H&M, Trousers: Tally Weijl , Bag: New Yorker, Ankle Boots: Blox, Sunnies: Cerjo (all previous seasons)

I copied the above statement from a Vogue article, quite an influential fashion magazine to say the least. A red and pink combo is totally in vogue this spring and summer season. When I read that statement I was happy that I already had a lovely top with these two colours in my wardrobe, bought last spring. This almost sounds like I am ahead of fashion trends, doesn’t it? I do not claim I am, although I must admit I like the fact that I did buy something red and pink before it became trendy.

Last year I stayed on the safe side with the top, just adding some red, as you can see on the first photo below and in this blogpost. This year I became a bit braver and bolder and added both red and pink. Since we were sight-seeing in Middelburg (Zeeland, The Netherlands) the day the photos were taken, I opted for my comfortable and practical blue ankle boots. You can imagine that my red low heel pumps would have pimped up the outfit even more.

In case you’d like to be even bolder than me and want to go all the way, have a look at the following instyle article. You can find some awesome head to toe red and pink outfits as an inspiration for a real red and pink combo!

How daring are you in combining red and pink?
