Who Said Red Heads Can’t Wear Pink?

Growing up I always wanted red hair.  It was beautiful, fun and fiery. I thought it was a shame that my youngest brother was the red head and not me. However after a bad dye job in college, I grew to appreciate my brown hair and embrace my natural color.

One thing that you rarely hear when you have brown hair is that you shouldn’t wear certain colors but red heads hear it all the time. It’s one of those style cliques that seems to resonate and continue through the years.

I happen to disagree with this. I’m not encouraging red heads to run out and buy the first pink piece of clothing they see but rather to pick a shade that compliments their hair. Choose a pattern with pink in it or a soft tone that doesn’t clash. Rules are meant to be broken and there is always the exception to the rule.

Summertime Re-Mix

The end of the summer is the perfect time to mix up your wardrobe. Take advantage of the last few days by mixing and matching pieces in bright colors you wouldn’t normally pair. Bringing together bright colors will draw attention to your (hopefully) fabulous tan.

One way to add a fresh touch is to change up the statement jewelry. This outfit brings in bright turquoise to help the pink pop. These colors play off each other beautifully making this dress bright, sassy and summery.
