I wear a lot of pink [ one of my favs, I like to make boys wink ] but not so much red.
I have recently been catching glimpses of lots of stylish ladies wearing red and pink outfits over on Instagram , Pinterest and in various newsletters I sign up to.
I’m not scared of wearing colour in fact if your familiar with my Instagram [@the_naughtyfortydiaries ] you’ll see I positively embrace it.
I love the look but it’s not colours I would normally think of wearing together. But it works and looks striking.
Sometimes an outfit catches your eye and you just NEED it. Basically life won’t be worth living without it. This is the outfit above, very Audrey Hepburn met Carrie Bradshaw.
How blumming gorgeous !
With this in mind I’ve been having a look at some high street options and here’s what I’ve found…because like I said I want to recreate this look.
I’m ideally looking for plain, bold coloured separates.
The brightest pink and the reddest red.
Love this neckline.
A non jumper option [ above ] which would be ideal in the warmer months and would also look great with jeans.
Very much out of my price range but its the very colour I am after and it is a wool / cashmere blend…so when you put it like that!
I have this in black and its a lovely skirt. I featured it in this post // HERE
ASOS Vesper pleated midi skirt – I love this!
This is nice but its not got the ‘upphm’ of the fuller skirts.
Footwear wise . I have some red sandals [below]. They are gorgeous ribbon tie ones from good old Top Shop … circa 2002. I keep everything what can I say. They aren’t as orange in real life.
Here are some options to hopefully inspire you…
And while I’m on it … here are some other interesting bits of pink and red I spotted while i was having a ganzy around the inter-web! Starting with this lovely cold shouder tie top from Coast…
This has holidays written all over it
Bit of a 60’s feel to it and anything 60’s make me happy.
Totally out of my price-range [again!] but I NEED this jumper. I could see this taking over where the Bella Freud 1970 beauty left off… [I didn’t get that one either]
I really love this dress [which has been reduced from £60.00 to £42.00]
I am tempted to stick it in my basket. Firstly at 5ft 10 I know this will be long enough. I’d just add a thin belt [ gold or pink ] as I hate ugly waist bands. It’ll be perfect now layered with a contrasting jacket and in the summer as it is. What do you think ?
So there you have it …I hope your feeling suitably inspired.
Is pink and red a colour combination you would / will or are currently wearing? As always please let me know in the comments below.
Comments make an old lady happy!
Below …Yesterday wearing pink and red to work . I’m weaning myself in gently. I love that the colours clash.
The Boyfriend thought it was hilarious to keep asking when we landed. Hes so funny.
