Olivia Just Wore This "Wrong" Colour Combo, and It Looked Incredible

When we're in need of a glossy dose of NYC style, we turn to Olivia Culpo. Because the actress/model/TV presenter attacks the latest trends with a huge serving of uptown polish, she has a bit more leeway to be more experimental than some of her peers. Perfect makeup and shiny, shiny hair can make the most adventurous outfit seem easy, and her look today is a very good example of that.

In fashion circles, the colour combination of shocking pink and scarlet red has been accepted for a long time, but there are still many who believe these two hues shouldn't be seen together. Could the super-slick fluted skirt, neat knit and patent mules of Olivia's latest outfit persuade the haters? We think so—especially when topped off with matching rose-tinted aviators (very summer 2017) and vibrant lipstick. Oh, and not to mention that this pairing of shades definitely has the autumn/winter runway seal of approval.
