Fashionably Red


Leave it to Valentine's Day to get me in the mood for all things red and pink. I have been loving red in fashion lately, and not just because Valentine's Day is approaching! Adding bits of red to my wardrobe has been a relatively recent development. I tend to wear a lot of neutrals and have discovered that a pop of color can add a bit of pizazz to an otherwise boring look. Even something as simple as a red bag or lip can turn you from blah to fashionista!

I love how all of the lovely women above have utilized red to complete their look. I've included Kendi twice (4&5) because honestly, I think she's the queen of color (and pretty much fashion in general!). 

I bet even my big gray rat suit would look amazing with a red scarf or pair of red pumps....

....or not. :-/

What about you? Have you jumped on the red bandwagon?

I love the second photo! I haven't really gotten into red very much, it's not one of may favourite colours... but I do love pink! And I totally agree about Kendi, she's great! Sydney from The Daybook is also really good with fashion too :)

Red is actually my fave color for an instant mood boost! The first three photos are my favourite looks! And God, I love those glasses in the second pic!!!

Love your picks, I NEED to jump on the red bandwagon. I have a lot of magentas and corals, but no red... and I don't know why? I love it!

Great post! Love those red lips :) I have a pair of red cropped pants, and I'm dying to try a red/pink color block outfit :)

I just bought my first pair of red pants! I seriously want to wear them everyday. I also got into the really red lipstick a few months ago. Red is hot right now!!

i really love this idea. however, i doubt that i could pull it off. red just doesn't suit me. my skin has a red undertone so it looks terrible on me. however, you rock it :)


Elisa said...

I haven't worn much red since I got married in a red wedding dress - even though I love the color, somehow I stopped wearing it. These photos might just inspire me to add some red to my wardrobe though!I love those red tights!
