Red. Through the decades, this color has always been hot within the fashion world. Whether it is a red statement lip, a beautiful red Oscar de la Renta gown or the ever-coveted Christian Louboutin pumps fit with a trademark red sole, the color is always current and provocative, yet classic. Incorporating this vibrant hue into your everyday outfit is simple and will always be in style.
I caught up with this Fashionista at a country club banquet dinner and her look inspired me to “see red.” Her comfortable and casual black maxi dress is perfect for those sometimes-brisk summer nights, but her fiery Marc by Marc Jacobs cross-body bag is what drew my eye. Much like a “cherry bomb” this bag is an explosion of color against the dark summer dress. Its style makes it practical, but the color makes it stylish and bold. This bag is such a great buy because it’s multi-seasonal and is a perfect way to brighten up any outfit. The cross-body bag can be worn with jeans and a white tee to the mall or with a nice BCBGMAXAZRIA dress to an event.
This Fashionista’s other accessories are what she describes as her “everyday jewelry.” Her dainty gold necklace keeps with the simple look of the maxi dress. A fun, summer look is seen in her woven bracelet set. Everything is tied together with a beautiful and classic Michele watch.
I would encourage everyone this summer to add a little heat into your style and incorporate red as much as possible. Don’t just save your red accessories for July 4th!
