The Color Combination Winning Over Every Editor Right Now

Among all the soft lavender shades and sunny yellows that have taken over our Instagram feeds and shopping carts this season, there's one color combination we're head over heels for right now. And newsflash: It's not a pastel tone. The combination of pink and red started to percolate on the street style scene a few seasons back, and now we're seeing the power combo start to gain ground.

Bold and energetic, pink-and-red outfits are the under-the-radar trend that's commanding the attention of the Who What Wear editors. We'd go so far as to say that it's one of the only trends of spring 2018 we care about. Don't be daunted by the power duo—simply take a look at these approachable ways to incorporate the combo into your own wardrobe this spring and shop the pieces you need to achieve the editor-approved look.

Use a light shade of baby pink as a neutral against deep red tones.

When mixing contrasting prints together, opt for one with a larger graphic and one with a smaller design.

Take your color-blocking outfit up one more notch by wearing it with a coordinating handbag that combines both red and pink.

Now you're ready to test out the power duo in your own wardrobe.
