Inspired by the latest red and pink trend which most of you have probably seen on the runway, red carpet, and most recently on Emma Stone and Sarah Jessica Parker, I was set out to give it a try myself. Even though they are often seen as clashing colours, they happen to fall side by side on the colour wheel. I was hesitant in attempting this at first since the two hues are so vibrant, but the colour of my top and bottom seems almost monochromatic so it was less intimidating. The idea itself is a little overwhelming, but when you actually put the two together, the combination is ultra-feminine, bold and beautiful. I think the key is to pair it with muted accessories and keep everything else as minimal as possible.

What are your thoughts of the red and pink trend?

On a side note, I was recently nominated for the Student of the Month "The Artist" award on Campus Perks. I would greatly appreciate it if you can all help and support me by voting for me here. All votes need to be in by July 25th! Thank you xx. (You may need to confirm your account via e-mail before clicking "support").

  6. I love these colors together! On my computer it looks like 2 different shades of pink, but I know it's more of a red color on the pants. The top is so so cute. I love the ruffle at the bottom :)
