The red trend is something I’m sure you’ve noticed during the past couple months. But did you know that because red is such a bold color it’s actually quite easy to style? I posted a few looks here showing various ways to pull off red, and really with the color that attracts this much attention it’s better to just go all out. I’m still actually on the lookout for the perfect red coat for this season. I’ll update you once I find it. If you did want to go for more of a subtle red look I would stick to accessories, like I did in this previous post here. While red is one of my favorite colors it’s definitely one where you need to make sure the item is really good quality, because if it’s made cheap…it will show.
When wearing red for the holidays it’s nice to go with a bit more of a classic festive red/burgundy tone. I think it just attracts a little less attention while still keeping the holiday spirit. I always opt for lace or velvet during the holidays and then add a faux fur or leather jacket to the outfit as outwear. This makes for a good balance of texture as well as incorporating warm and cool tones, while staying cozy in the hopefully cold weather. I say hopefully because it’s been so hot in California lately its been almost impossible to break out all my cozy winter coats. Though I will have more fall/winter outfits coming soon as well as my winter lookbook, so stay tuned for that!
