Red has always been a challenging colour in my wardrobe. I'm not one to regularly wear bright colours, especially paired together, but the idea of wearing something loud with all black feels like too safe an option. What kind of colours go well with a vibrant red, though? In acceptance of this self-administered challenge I dug out my red ribbed jumper, and after rejecting a solid portion of clothes to my bedroom floor I found it: a pair of ribbed 'shell' pants. This colour pairing not only differs from all of my previous sartorial decisions but it also strongly goes against the ancient wives tale that red and pink are not made for each other. Despite this, I can't help but really like it. Lesson learnt, friends; sometimes it's okay to dress like you're colour blind.
