Colors mix: Red and Pink?

Pink with red? Pink with red is a Hallmark Valentine card, the kind where the roses are in bristly relief.

Pink with red is the stripes on a Victoria’s Secret carrier bag. Pink with red is everything that pink with navy is not. However, according to the Jonathan Saunders catwalk, pink with red is Chic Now, and what Jonathan Saunders doesn’t know about being Chic Now isn’t worth knowing.

So I’m willing to give it a shot. Especially since those navy tops still aren’t ironing themselves. And you know what? It works. There’s something about combining two shades that are close together on the colour wheel that makes you look quite sophisticated.
