Although the Red/Pink trend can be disastrous to pull off, there are 4 easy ways to pull of this trend freshly taken from the runways.
1. Colorblocking or Total Uniform Loo
Colorblocking or a total uniform color of red or pink dress/suit with little accessories neutral colors is the easyiest look. For some of extravagance feel free to add ruffles and off the shoulder look to create a cool latin feel.
2.Mixture of Pink/Red Shades and Overlapping Prints
If you not comfortable with the total Barbie Pink look, a mix of Pink shades, prints and materials can create a 3D effect while toning down the look. This can be worn with boots, sneakers or flats to create a more balance look to the feminine outfit.
Being promiscuous with a cool effortless masculine look is one of my favourites. Mixing pink and red with tailored suits, jumpsuits or even long loose pants paired with a large mohair red turtleneck sweater is a great alternative to the trend without feeling overly girly or flashy
