What To Wear With: Red And Pink (Yes You Can Wear Them Together)

When I was a little girl, I thought red and pink together was genius. My mother… not so much. But we promise you – and all the mothers out there -red and pink DO look cute together if done right. So here's how to make it work:

Tone It Down: Use black, metallics or neutrals to help chill a seemingly contradicting color combo. Don't go overboard by matching your outfit to red and pink accessories.

Play: Give this style a chance by experimenting with what you have in your closet and shopping for complementary hues in stores. Don't wait until Monday morning before work to try it out.

Harmonize: Try wearing solid pieces in pinks and reds of the same brightness or intensity to create balance. Don't mix prints of red and pink together–that's just asking for trouble.

For the office, pair a bold red knee-length skirt ($90) with a classic pink ruffle blouse ($54). Wear a crisp black blazer ($138)  over the ensemble and slip on a pair of modern suede heels ($140). Finish the look with some metallic cuffs ($35) that will bring just enough sparkle to the outfit. If you're going for a more toned-down appearance, opt for muted tones and match a baby pink skirt ($117, was $234) with a deep red, almost burgundy, top ($178). Throw on a cozy taupe cardigan ($331.80, was $829.50) and some fun leopard print ballet flats ($134, were $259). Finally, grab an understated metallic bag ($695)  and wear your pink and red combo with pride.
