Years ago it was unheard of to combine red and pink. And even red and purple, which can actually be on of my favourite combintations, done right.
In my book, there are no combinations of colours or patterns that are a no-no, as long is it it easy on the eye.
This sweater from DKNY has nuances of red and pink in clear colours, that I combined with red shoes and pink nail polish.
