If a first lady like Michelle Obama can pull off a pink and green color combo, so can you. The vibrant, spring colors dazzle fashion-forward ladies, intrigue preppie gals and grace wedding ceremonies. So, go for it! To coordinate the two colors, spice up your outfit with cute jewelry, a vibrant purse or colorful hair accessories in rosy and green hues.

Coordinating Colors
Get the flirty combination of pink and green just right by choosing great complementary hues of the colors. If your dress resembles bubble gum pink, slip into a pair of lime or grass green shoes. If you’re more of a pastel girl, pair your cotton-candy pink dress with soft, muted green shoes.

Or, get a little eccentric and make your pink dress the “wow” piece of your outfit. Picture your friend’s jaw dropping when you show up to a lunch date wearing a neon pink sundress accessorized with strappy sandals, a chunky beaded necklace and a svelte clutch in soft green pastels.

Adding Jewelry
Once you’re happy with your dress and shoe combo, add some bling to your look. For an elegant appearance, slip on some rose gold jewelry. The soft pink hue of the metal plays off your pink dress.

For a casual look, don a matching necklace and bracelet set made of antique floral-patterned beads. The swirl of colors gives a unifying look to your pink-green outfit.

Picking a Purse
Whether you’re grabbing an over-sized purse for a day of errands or a slim clutch for a hot rendez vous, your purse will set the tone of your pink and green ensemble. To keep your look simple and festive, choose a patterned day bag with short over-the-shoulder straps, keeping the bag close to your pink dress. Make sure the bag has either pink or green — or both — in the pattern.

For a sexy look carry a pink glitter-clad clutch or a miniature hobo bag in green leather.

Colorful Accessories
Add more bursts of pink and green to your outfit with accessories for your hair and dress. A pink-feather hair clip adds a whimsical appeal to your dress. Tying a pink and green striped scarf head-band style in your hair adds a look of sophistication.

Pin a vintage broach encrusted with faux pink gemstones onto the dress, or use the pin as a unique closure for a sheer scarf-turned-belt.

Let pink and green add a splash of color to your spring wardrobe. Whether you’re searching for bridesmaid dresses or a cute warm-weather outfit for a weekend out, wrap yourself in fresh, vibrant colors of the season.
