Fuchsia & Red

pink and redCalvin Klein blouse  /  TJ Maxx red pants (similar)  /  Nine West nude heels  /  DSW clutch   (similar) /  Forever 21 necklace (sold out, similar)  /  Betsey Johnson flower earrings

This fuchsia and red combo is my take on the monochrome trend that I’ve been seeing everywhere lately. Although I’ve been known to rock head-to-toe black, I don’t think that really classifies as monochrome, does it? Pink and red go together well, so I thought I’d try a fuchsia instead of pink. I definitely felt like a human Valentine, but in the best way possible, of course. I kept my accessories neutral, but couldn’t resist putting some color on my lips. I am a girl after all.

    This is a great way to make a simple outfit fun, just by playing with the colors. Love the monochrome look and these colors work well with your skin tone.

    I don’t think I could ever personally get over the stigma of mixing these two colors but it looks good. I like fashion but clearly I’m repressed :)

    Fuschia is your color! I think it is honestly one of the best colors for brunettes, especially if they have olive skin, like you. Love this look!!
