Pink and Red Is the Fresh Colour Combination We Can't Wait to Try This Spring
The official debut of pink-and-red colourblocking was on the 2019 Emmy Awards red carpet. Whether or not there was a styling cue for the night remains a mystery, but Mandy Moore, Taraji P. Henson, and Marisa Tomei certainly got the memo. Since then, we've been seeing this vibrant, unexpected colourblocking combo on the runways and from our favourite street style moments. Even the Queen is a fan of this bold pairing.
From the Spring/Summer 2020 runways, we're musing over the pink-and-red styling at Bora Aksu. The London-based Turkish brand delivered frothy colourblock silk organza dresses with sweet ruffled hemlines. For the Autumn/Winter 2020 season, few did red-and-pink better than Carolina Herrera. The brand's designer, Wes Gordon, showed numerous sophisticated red-and-pink designs, including a smart structured satin suit, a loose-fitting A-line minidress, and a bright-pink, high-neck gown styled under a glamorous red cape coat.
