Savvy Color Combo: Pink & Orange

Perhaps I am just a conservative in my younger days but recently I really like the idea of mixing bright bold colors to create a stylish statement. I am taking baby steps by adding bold colors with accessories (ie, hot pink sweater with orange flats). Looking at the wardrobe from Confession of a Shopaholic, mixing bright colors is quite savvy and stylish uh. The look is dramatic and I don't think it's gaudy at all. Sometimes it's very savvy to think outside of the box and have a little fun with our personal styles.I am really surprised at how well pink and orange work together. The combo is vibrant and lively.I have purchased and adore mix color & print clothing in the past, but is somewhat shy about mixing solid color pieces together.

A simple solid orange top with pink shoes or handbag is quite stylish.
-Pink heels by Sergio Rossi --- versatile and vibrant
-tote by Kate Spade $325 via Nordstrom
-Tocca fuchsia via Bluefly
-Lilly Pulitzer orange ruffle cardigan via Saks $288
-Autunm Cashmere via Bluefly
-Kashmere orange scarf via Bluefly --- A pink top with orange scarf makes quite a statement
-J. Crew sandals $125
-J. Crew skirt $88
-J. Crew pink tank top $16.50 --- I am not sure if I am ready to wear a pink top with orange skirt but I might just try in the near future.
What about you, will you wear orange with pink and how will you wear these colors together? I know my 6 year old niece will just adore this color combo!

  2. I love this color combination. I threw a shower for my friend last year, and these were the colors. When I told her about them, she was very skeptical, until I sent her pictures, and she loved it!

    Yes, I love mixing bright pink and orange, BUT only in the summer when I'm super tanned. It looks awesome against dark skin :)
    Have a lovely friday!

  10. In the long distant past I had an outfit which consisted of purple, red and orange, I thought I looked SO cool in it - I did not. I don't think I'll be going there again, well maybe just a bag. One bag won't harm anyone...

  17. I love this color combo. There was a great outfit that shopbop featured on their ads last year. The little coat she was wearing was orange and pink...with torn/distressed jeans and cute flats. Love it!
