Throw the rule book out of the window and embrace the trend for combining colours that well, clash.

Accents of white keep the scheme feeling fresh and the introduction of delicate accessories make for a more nuanced feel.
Bold splashes of crimson, scarlet and coral are juxtaposed with softer shades of pink to fashion a look that breaks all the traditional rules
