Pink & Red Pin

This past September at New York Fashion Week, attendees and street style setters alike were strutting to a new color scheme that was different than the usual New York dress code of black on black.  Many were sporting pink and red together as a color combination and a bright one at that.  Most excitedly, both Calvin Klein and Brandon Maxwell showed the color combination in their Spring/Summer 2018 collections during NYFW.

I absolutely love this color combo!  I think it’s perfect.  First, it combines two of my very favorite colors.  And second, pink is a direct derivative of red so the colors go so well together in and of themselves.

I think that they would be a perfect color choice for any holiday party!  In fact, I think that they would bring a breath of fresh air to the tired old looks that have been done a million times.

Below are two collage outfits full of red and pink items to serve as an example of how to mix and match.

Red: The Color Trend of Resort 2018 & Fall/Winter 2017-18 Red Was Shown in Almost Every Major Fashion House for Fall/Winter 2017-18 & Resort 2018

The Color Red - Trend

The Color Red - Trend

There is no denying that red is the color du jour.  It was all over the runways last Spring for the Fall/Winter 2017-18 collections.  Following suit with the F/W trend, red also made a big impact on the Resort 2018 collections this summer.  This is just a not-so-subtle hint to incorporate red into your Fall/Winter wardrobe!  It’s a bold color that screams, “I’m here. Look at me!”  I believe that it’s universally flattering too.  And, in Ancient Egypt, red was associated with life, health, and victory.  Believe that great things will come to you when you boldly wear red!

Let’s take a look at which fashion houses displayed this color trend so prominently. (Note that there are most likely other fashion houses that showed red just as prominently.  I did my best to cover the major houses. Enjoy!)

Valentino has always been known for the color red…
