trend alert | red & taupe

Some things were just born to go together; Salt-n-Peppa, chocolate and peanut butter, Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass (please Lord, make it happen), Ant and Dec… and red and taupe. Bright colour is of course the trend of S/S11, and add it to the elegant and softer cousin of grey and it’s a classic combination. Teaming up a bold shade with a neutral one works especially well for those who are a little colour-shy; try a taupe dress with a bright red clutch and heels, or you could cheat by combining the two and invest in a pair of taupe Louboutins. Two birds with one stone – surely that’s just good sense:
