Go boldly in red or go home. In a red dress, with a red bag, or in red shoes. Even better when all in red. Even though everyone knows Greenery is the colour of this year, there is another colour that we will be wearing more than any other colour. Yes, it’s a colour of passion, love and flame. It’s the red colour.
No matter how much I love to wear my red shoes, I can’t say red is one of my favourite colours. Honestly, there was a time, when I simply couldn’t wear it. Regardless the tales that red colour brings you power and self-confidence the minute you put it on. I believe I didn’t style it right. But I was 10 then. So you can’t really blame me. Anyway, I learned how to wear the red colour right. Moreover, to feel confident and powerful when wearing it.
As said, red is not my colour. Still, you will see me wearing it the next 12 months quite often. Yes, 12 months. Because it seems like this colour is here to stay. And for more than just one season. Being one of top fashion trends, actually. By the way, you can find the list of all top fashion trends here.
HOW TO WEAR RED
The first rule when it comes to red and current fashion trends is to wear all over red. Meaning, everything in red. From shoes, dress or pants and shirt (even skirt or dress and pants at once), coat to the bag in one outfit. To put it short, the red outfit. Things get slightly more complicated if you either don’t feel wearing red all over or simply don’t have everything in red. Of course, the easiest way is to get yourself everything in red and wear it together in one outfit.
Nevertheless, I decided to try something else this time. And instead for wearing a 100 % red outfit, combine the red dress with three other colours.
I decided to wear my red dress together with the brown over the knee boots, grey double-breasted coat, black gloves and black mini bag. I forgot to add the metallic red belt, though. Well, at least I have an excuse to wear this dress again. With the metallic belt, of course.
ADOP AND SHOP MY STYLE
Finally about where you can get all the clothes I’m wearing today. Sorry, girls, I did it again. Or should I better say, I wore it again? You can only get the OTK Boots that I’m wearing in the store now. They are from Stuart Weitzman. And you can get them by clicking the photo in the gallery above.
As it comes to everything else, it’s all old. Blame it to Emma Watson and her sustainable fashion motion. True, I’m wearing leather boots, but at least I’m not throwing away my clothes and shoes after wearing it only once.
Back to adopting my style. I found some fabulous red dresses and grey coats to wear with the red dress for you. You can find them all in the gallery.
HAIR AND MAKEUP
Few words about my hair and makeup. Even though you might expect me to say you should wear the bold red lipstick together with the red outfit, I won’t say that. In case you don’t know yet, the it colour of the lips this year is the one I’ wearing now. The velvet Oxblood with a satin finish.
I’m wearing a low ponytail. Somehow messy and sleek at the same time. I have no idea how I pulled this off. It was rather painful, not to say else.
