The one old-school fashion rule you need to start breaking immediately. And how.

red and pink fashion

Whoever once upon a time said thou shalt not wear thy pink and red clothes together-eth was a jerk. Sorry.

Adding just a touch of pink and red with makeup and accessories.

A post shared by ALHAJAS (@alhajas.accessories) on

Then, if you're cool with it, comes chucking on a pair of red sunnies or adding a pink bag.

Here are some of our favourite products to get your started:
