We’re still coming down from our New York Fashion Week high. Can you blame us? It was a color-story dream.

1. From lipstick to handbags, Rebecca Minkoff’s collection was all about the oxblood accents.

2. MILLY has officially assured us that black-on-black (on black) is way more chic than morbid.

3. Pink came alive in every shade on the Monique Lhuillier runway.

4. Often-underappreciated navy made a major comeback in SUNO’s collection.

5. Carolina Herrera covered her catwalk in blood orange.

This week we’re feeling girly. Really girly.

1. Sparkle is appropriate all year round. We have proof.

2. The chignon = Grace Kelly.

3. Toughen up a pastel palette with a touch of neon.

4. On Wednesdays, we wear pink. (Mean Girls for life.)

5. Sugar and spice and everything nice. This Pinboard‘s exactly that.

Pink and red might be the girliest of color combinations, but I say embrace it (no matter your gender). Not for the faint of heart, these hues stand out. But what could be better for a bit of punchy summer-wardrobe fun? Here are three ways to make the pairing work for you.

BLG-1508 Boutique Support- Color Lab Pink Red

Colorblock. This one’s a no-brainer. Pick complementary shades of red and pink (bright red works well with almost any shade of fuchsia, pastel, or bubblegum pink) and pair for a bold effect à la Sarah Jessica Parker. To temper the double dose of allover color, go ahead and bring another more neutral color like white or cream into the mix.

Mix + match. This is where you can really get creative. Pick a single separate that features both pink and red, then go from there. Whether it’s printed pants or a tiered skirt in shades of coral, pair with a solid and go. Then, let the I-had-no-idea-that-could-work compliments begin.

Work the easy one-piece. Wear a dress with pink and red already incorporated and consider the work done for you. All that’s left? Slip into a pair of white, nude, or metallic silver sandals – attempting to match with another pink or red shade could look off – and you have a nice, contrasting pop that doesn’t compete with your one-piece wonder. (Check out how Emma Stone successfully rocked this look if you need a little extra convincing.)

Our Color Lab: Pair Pink with Red Boutique opens Tuesday, June 4, at 11AM ET.
