Code Red



Though I know of many who disagree, pink & red has always been one of my favorite color combinations.  So when this new coat arrived, I knew I wanted to wear it first with some pastel pink pieces.  If you're wary of trying these hues together, just start small - instead of hot pink & siren red, go for a cherry/blush pairing like I did here.  It creates a much less jarring contrast...and also happens to be perfectly festive for the upcoming holiday!







What I'm wearing:
Ann Taylor blouse (similar), c/o Sheinside coat (here), Worthington pants (on sale here or similar here), Mia wedges (on sale here), c/o Style by Marina snood, Forever 21 bag (here), Bracelets: Forever 21 (similar here or here& Banana Republic/DIY (similar; see instructions here)

This is a very romantic look. I love pink and red as well, and the polka dots just make it so fun. Lovely!

Such a beautiful color combo! I spotted that F21 bag right away, I loved it at the store, it looks way more expensive than it is and the way your styled it is perfect :)

I am one of those people you are referring too. I think my mother engrained it in me that the two colours didn't belong together. You have paired the hues perfectly and I think my mind is changed.

You look gorgeous as always!
Whereas red&pink or red&orange are not my personal favourites, I do like your subtle and much more elegant version of red&pastel pink!

A red spring coat is already on my shopping list...

You found a red coat!! Looks great with the snood & perfect with the soft pastel pink :)

Rhymes With Fashion said...

My mother often tells a story about me as a child, telling a stranger that "pink and red clash". But after seeing several pink and red ensembles (including your lovely look), I think my childhood color sense is changing! Great pants too!

Anytime you can make a coat part of your overall look makes outfit photos in the winter a lot more fun, am I right?! ;)
You look great (and cozy)!

I love that bag! And you're right, pairing blush with red is perfect and slightly less jarring. But I do think a bolder pink is doable; maybe you should style something like that later this week!

Pink and red is such a beautiful combination but I have yet to wear it. I might just have to give it a try for Valentine's Day. I love how you chose soft shades to pair together. That coat is really pretty on you.

This whole look is just so pretty. I think the coat and the colour are what really make it work.

I am jealous of those that can make a snood look good. I just look like I have a furry fat neck.

I personally love pink and red together, but I'm not one to follow fashion "rules". I think the softer pink and red look great like you paired it.. And I am in love with your purse! I need that in my life lol.

I've always liked hot pink and bright red together -- but I never thought about pairing a softer pink with red. I love the outfit you've created here!

Looks great! I love pink and red together! The pastel pink is a nice take, usually hot pink and red are paired together.
