Really, ladies, is there anything more vibrant than pink and red outfits? This color combo just pops, so when you truly want to make a statement, give this combination a go.
In this post, I’m styling three pieces: a red skirt, a pink sweater, black jeans, and a striped sweater, all in combinations of pink and red, with a little black on the side. Let’s get started!
Pink and Red Outfit #1
In my last post, I showed how easy it is to style up a basic outfit made up of a pink sweater and jeans. By pairing the pink with red accessories, the whole outfit took on a new look. The same is true for this next outfit.
This look takes the basic pieces from the jeans outfit above to a little higher level in terms of dressiness. I took the same slouchy pastel pink sweater and paired it with the pleated skirt and voila! A whole new look!
I’ve styled this red pleated skirt more times than I can count. As a keeper piece from Target some years ago, I can definitely say the cost-per-wear is quite low, making it a great buy!
One of my favorite posts featured the skirt with a cute graphic sweatshirt in honor of women.
Pink and Red Outfits with Stripes
For the next red and pink outfits, I’m styling a little different look with the addition of black. This older Target sweater by WhoWhatWear takes the pink and red theme to another level with the addition of black stripes. This sweater was a piece that I wasn’t too sure about but ended up liking a lot. I first styled it a LONG time ago in the post, Pattern Mixing in a Gingham Skirt and Striped Sweater. Remember when we were all in love (once again) with gingham? I still love the two patterns together!
Since most of us won’t be going anywhere in particular for Valentine’s Day, you can style almost any pink or red top with basic black pants or jeans. And we all have THOSE in our closets! (Oh, such fond memories of going out as we did LAST Valentine’s Day before the first lockdown! Who’d have thought that word–lockdown– would become part of our everyday vocabulary?)
Since I already had this cute little striped sweater in the V-Day appropriate colors, I just put the two together. As the weather has been on-again 0ff-again either cold or rainy, my wedge booties made the perfect shoe choice.
The red in the sweater was also a great match with my gold ol’ pleated skirt, making another option for a striking red ensemble for a future Valentine’s Day or date night event. One can dream, right?
I couldn’t decide whether the sweater looked better tucked or out. Hmm, what do you think?
Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with your honey or all by yourself, pull out some pieces and put together a festive pink and red outfit to honor this holiday with the ones you love, whether they are with you in person or close in your heart.
