Colour Crushing – Mint and Red 4

I have recently been obsessing over this unusual colour combination for indian weddings – mint and red. When you think about it, they seem like a rather odd pairing together. Mint is a pastel, and red is well, red. It’s a bold colour that packs a punch in every form, so what is it doing with a pastel shade? It’s creating a unique harmony, that’s what it’s doing.

Red, when paired with mint creates a striking combination which will ensure that you cannot be ignored. Don’t believe us, just ask Anushka Sharma! She wore a beautiful mint anarkali offset by a gorgeous, lush velvet Sabyasachi dupatta to a wedding recently, and she looked like a million, no, a billion bucks!

Also a believer in the mint and red combination is designer extraordinaire Anju Modi (she was the designer in Bajirao Mastani as well!), whose 2015 collection sparkled with these mint-red jewels like this:
