How to embrace the colour red
Incorporating colour into your winter wardrobe is an excellent way to brighten up any outfit. Red is a stunning colour against the crisp white snow, but for some, it’s definitely a scary colour embrace. Red is an extremely bold, bright, in your face and unapologetic colour, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear it in your day to day life. Don’t wait for special occasions or a night out on the town to rock this shade. There are easy and effortless ways to incorporate this crimson into both your workday and weekend wardrobe. Whether you decide for a subtle pop of colour or want to embrace it head to toe, it’s a fun colour to start playing around with.
Although there are many ways to wear red, the easiest way would have to be with accessories. Adding a simple red clutch is the perfect way to add a pop of colour to any look. A bold, red statement necklace can help draw attention up to your face and brighten up your complexion. A red bracelet can add visual interest in a subtle way.
If you’re feeling a little more daring and adventurous, try a red skirt. It’s incredibly sexy and sultry, but depending on what you pair with it, can look chic and understated. Wearing red with a neutral shade, such as black, white or nude is your safest and easiest option. Whereas contrasting the colour with other bold and vibrant hues is a trendy and fashion-forward way at style red.
A red skirt goes beautifully with black and white stripes. There’s something about these colour palettes that instantly give a real Parisian vibe to any look. I tend to keep the rest of my outfit fairly neutral when playing with a bold colour. Complementing black and white pieces help to keep it understated and daytime appropriate. That being said, since it was just a classic silhouette, I had fun with the purse (which is in a baby pink). To think years ago, you would never clash red and pink together.
