How to Nail the Infamous Valentine’s Day Color Combo

Whether you’re a color-obsessed fashion person or not, it’s tempting to throw some color in your outfits from time to time, especially when Valentine’s Day rolls around. The love-themed holiday presents the iconic color combination that most of us know and love — pink and red. Although it’s easy to take the safe route by wearing only one color, it doesn’t hurt to try color-blocking. The great thing about color is that there are many shades to each one, so you’re not as limited as you think. Feel free to throw on a classic little ruby red dress or try Pantone’s color of 2023; magenta. Whether you’re going for a sophisticated date night with your special partner or going on a casual date with friends, here’s some outfit inspo for mastering the daunting, yet beautiful color combo.

If you’re the edgy kind of girl, this is the look for you. As pictured, I wore a red varsity jacket with a rust cargo skirt and a pair of classic Valentine’s Day Air Force 1s. For the ultimate street vibe, I added a red Nike quilted bag and baby pink sunglasses.

As simple as the formula for this look might be, the pieces paired together create a cohesive and powerful look. While streetwear isn’t the first inclination when it comes to Valentine’s Day dressing, this outfit is perfect for a nice, casual date while remaining festive. Mixing different shades of the same hue adds depth to your outfit, as seen here. Also, choosing a base color while color-blocking is always a good idea. In this case red acts as the main character of the story, pairing well with pink accessories, and the addition of rust brings an unconventional twist to the outfit, uniting the two colors seamlessly.
