Red + Pink

I almost never blog about the color red. The reason is pretty simple: as a redhead, I try to stay far, far away. But then my friend Bailey pinned these two ensembles and got my creative juices flowing...



First of all, Emma Stone is a redhead. Second, both of these ladies look fantastic in red and pink. I decided that maybe, just maybe, if I wore pink on top and kept the red away from my hair, I could give it a go.

{7} Michael Kors ring, $85


If you prefer long sleeves à la Emma and SJP, I'm also liking this hot pink top. What do you think? Could I pull it off? Would you ever pair red and pink?

This is a combo I have definitely not tried before. I may have to start with those bangles though and work my way to that amazing skirt.

I have a bright red Donna Karen silk blouse that I always pair with my BRIGHT pink skirt from JCrew..I love this color combo!

Jackie {York Avenue} said...

I love it! It reminds me of J. Crew and Kate Spade so I automatically am into it. It's bright, it's eye catching, it's a fun combo! By the way, I LOVE your blog header! So pretty.

i'm a red head, too. and i can't do like bright bright red... but i can do an orange-red color and it looks decent. if you have colored eyes, it looks fine... if you have brown eyes the red mixes funny... i have a cousin with red hair and brown eyes and red is just NOT her color.

You know I am a red and pink girl all the way. Red and pink is Gracie Girls theme...that and hearts. Ya gotta have a gimmick ;)

I ADORE red and pink together- I'm like you and stay away from red as a whole but when it's put together with pink, well that's the exception. Love the outfit you put together...that skirt is gorgeous.

bold + bold = gorgeous!

Gloria said...

I really love this color combo - so bold!

I personally think red hair is awesome and I think Emma pulled the red and pink awesomely as a girl with red hair. I really think it can work for you and that you should totally go for it! It's an unlikely combo that works beautifully together and I think it will be the same with rocking it as a red head. Do it! ;0)
