Pink & Red: True Love

As colour pairings go black and white is pretty much our favourite twosome, closely followed by navy and grey.  But lately we’ve fallen for an unconventional combo that is so far removed from our usual palette, yet we can’t help loving: red and pink.  Now Valentines Day may be over for another year but this pairing is a love affair with longevity.

We find pink on it’s own can look a little saccharine.  When teamed with red however it becomes an altogether punchier, pretty and powerful look.  Try blush with tomato, cherry with magenta or burgundy with powder pink – and if it’s a little too bold for you try experimenting with accessories.
