Remember when it was a taboo to pair colours like red and pink or green and blue together? Remember that chick you accused of colour rioting when she boldly showed up at work wearing a blue skirt and a green top? Well guess the joke is on you now Miss!!!
Thanks to the color blocking trend that we have seen hit the red carpet in 2011, it is now appropriate for people to wear pink and red together.

How To Rock Red and Pink
Tone It Down: Use black, metallics or neutrals to help chill a seemingly contradicting color combo. Don't go overboard by matching your outfit to red and pink accessories.
Play: Give this style a chance by experimenting with what you have in your closet and shopping for complementary hues in stores. Don't wait until Monday morning before work to try it out.
Harmonize: Try wearing solid pieces in pinks and reds of the same brightness or intensity to create balance. Don't mix prints of red and pink together–that's just asking for trouble.
I wore a red skirt and a pink blouse. I decided to wear a tri-coloured pair of shoes and picked a brown bag.
