Pink & Red Do Work Together

“I think there is beauty in everything. What ‘normal’ people would perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it.”
– Alexander McQueen

Pink and Red: both fun colors to use, but at the same time one has to be cautious when using each of them so as not to look like a hot mess. So that’s one of the reasons why it is rather difficult to pair the two in an attire.

It’s funny that although pink and red are similar, most would agree that the thought of both of them together may appear uncanny and ridiculous; pairing the two up might even be known as a “fashion don’t.”

Well, as you may have found out from my blog posts, I don’t necessarily like to follow the rules when it comes to fashion and my personal style – which is why I have chosen to wear Red and Pink together.

Truth be told, this trend of blending in the two is becoming rather popular. In fact, the other day I saw a dress by Red Valentino that was pink with red hearts on it.

However, before you start planning out your pink and red outfit, let me give you a secret tip on how you can look attractive in your ensemble:

Pale Pink and Bold Red.

Using the pale pink and bold red brings about a sort of balance in your outfit: while you have the bold red that grabs your attention, the presence of the pale pink is subtle, not so “attention grabbing” but also hard to miss. And for accessorize, I kept it simple and neutral to give a bit of contrast to my vivid clothing choice.

So knowing this, don’t be scared to mix Red and pink in once in a while. However, if you’re not interested in using the colors in clothes, you can start small – and safe – by using them as accessorize.

Don’t be stuck in your own style bubble and try something new. Someone once said, “Fashion is like eating, you shouldn’t stick to the same menu.” Therefore, try a different menu, in a different restaurant. Life is too short to do the same thing over and over again.

So what are your thoughts on the outfit?

Do you think the Red & Pink can work together or would you rathere just keep them apart?

Snug and Stunning

“A woman is never sexier than when she is comfortable in her clothes.”
– Vera Wang

Some people have this perception that the more you suffer for an outfit, the better it is.  They could literally be in pain, but as long they look good, that’s all that matters–they’ll be making others believe that they feel amazing, not knowing that their outfit is actually a burden. Suffering and Smiling. 

But I’m here to say that you don’t have to ‘break your back’ to be able to get the right outfit-whether financial, physically or otherwise. You can be stylish AND comfortable.

Comfort has always been a major thing for me when picking an outfit – I don’t even consider it if I am not pleased with how it makes me feel. For instance, I personally don’t like excessively tight and revealing clothing, so no matter what I make sure I always have a loose piece of clothing on. So if I want to wear skinny jeans, I would wear a loose top, just to give it some sort of balance.

And for this outfit, as you can see, you can look just as glamorous in sweats! Just accessorize the outfit to your preference and there you go – your comfy and cute look!

There are those situations where your attire is attractive, but you can’t even enjoy it because of how bad it makes you feel. You may look great in those gorgeous heels, but your feet ache with every step. Those designer skinny jeans may bring out the perfect shape of your butt, but you can barely walk in them due to their tightness. Your brand new Nike Air Forces may make you envied by all your classmates, but it gives your feet bunions.

Your style shouldn’t bring you discomfort. You owe it to yourself to look and feel great. Express your creative style and make sure it’s not only visually pleasant  but allows you to feel fabulous as well.

So what are your thoughts on the outfit?

How would you have styled it, which color would you use, what clothing type would you prefer, or which other way would you have gone in creating a snug and stunning Style?

Well that’s all…for now at least. I’ll see you guys next time. God bless.
