Pink and Bright Red + Style With a Smile Link Up

My collection of knitted and crocheted vests is continuing to grow; this is my latest addition. I found it on eBay for a very reasonable price – £15 plus £3.50 postage. When I first saw it I thought it would be far too small, but it does have a fair amount of stretch. This would have been the perfect outfit for Valentine’s Day with the cute hearts and pink and bright red colourway…one to remember for next year! (Although Pete said I looked like a giant strawberry, so that kind of killed off any potential romance!)

Often I’ll add a third accent colour to an outfit, but pink and bright red really only need each other

I love to layer crocheted vests over roll neck tops for a retro vibe and I’ve recently bought about half a dozen in different colours and patterns. They’re very affordable and versatile so are really useful items to have in your wardrobe. Often I’ll add a third accent colour to an outfit, but pink and bright red really only need each other. Limiting the outfit to these two colours maximises their impact. The red sock boots also have that flattering leg lengthening effect too.

I don’t have a heart print bag, but this star motif crossbody works just as well. The polymer clay earrings by No Shrinking Violet tie in with both the heart theme and the colourway perfectly. I’m all set to start making my own polymer clay jewellery now and I’m thinking up some bold designs and colour combinations! I’ll keep you posted!

Do you love wearing pink and bright red together? Would you wear this colour combination all year round or just for Valentine’s Day?

    Your Pete is a funny guy. This combination is so perfect and so are those earrings. I’m totaly into clay earrings at the moment because they are so light!

  3. Emma, this is the best outfit ever! Even if your husband sees strawberries. Haha. The colorway and the wonderful vintage vest and your pink beret…all so magnificent! I am smiling so big at your photos right now! This is definitely the type of outfit that will brighten the day and the moods of everyone around you.

    A few years ago, I wouldn’t have gone anywhere near red and pink but now I absolutely love it! You always seem to nail it when it comes to bright colours, Emma. I love that your nails are blue though. You look fabulous!

    You know what? I never realized your tagline until this very moment. I was very skeptical posting my latest fashion post because it’s my daughter. But your tagline says “style has no age limit”… and you are SO RIGHT!

    Loving this red outfit on you! You are a very gorgeous girl!!

    I totally agree that pink and red can stand alone. Super cute! I wrote in the post with your other crochetted vest that they SO remind me of my grandma’s work! She made all kinds of things like that.
