Orange you glad you wore pink!

Wearing bright colors is the perfect way to brighten up your day, especially on those cloudy and rainy days. Try mixing two bright colors at a time. Orange and pink is a great place to start. This color combination is bold, fun, modern and youthful. 

It's popular in decorating and even more popular in fashion. In color theory, pink and orange is considered an analogous color scheme, meaning that the colors are adjacent to each other on the color wheel. Orange is a combination of red and yellow, and pink is a shade of red, making them work together in beautiful harmony. However, for the colors to work together in perfect harmony, choose shades of pink and orange that have similar undertones.

Choosing complementary colors, such as blue or green, from the opposite side of the color wheel add interesting accents to an orange and pink outfit. You can also pair orange and pink with neutrals. White is a fresh look and orange and pink will pop against it. Brown will subdue the two colors and make them more warm and romantic.

Have fun mixing and matching this dynamic duo. It'll have you saying "Orange you glad you wore pink" (cheesy, we know, but it's cute)!

    1. Thank you Abby! This is really another great way to try color-blocking. Especially if you feel more comfortable with two colors instead of wearing the rainbow :)

    1. Thank you Dale! That makes us feel good since you're an excellent expert on the subject (you always have great advice and tips)! Who would have thought there were so many ways to just wear two colors!? Cupcakes and Cashmere's (5th pic) is so cute and more on the pastel color side.
