Forget the old rules - you can SO wear red and pink together! The trick is to pair neighboring hues on the color wheel such as yellow-orange, purplepink or blue-green. Now draw a straight line across the color wheel from one of your selected colors to the opposite side of the wheel. Voila - the perfect accent color! Adding it to your ensemble is as easy as grabbing a colorful accessory like jewelry or a belt. Do yourself (and the rest of us) a favor and stick to 3 colors max to avoid the “Rainbow Brite” look!
Feeling adventurous? Try matching up more vibrant, but still-complimentary colors, such as the orange, turquoise and white necklace pictured below. Go for contrasting shades such as bold, primary colors - opposites attract, after all. For a more subdued look, pair like-colors such as purple/blue or pink/red that complement each other. For a true color blocking impact, leave the leopard spots and other prints home - solids only.
With all that color, the best choice for shoes would be a nude color or other neutral. Nude shoes are one of the hottest shoe trends right now and are a perfect finish to your color-blocking not to mention they make your legs look longer- woo-hoo!
