What can we say - we love the color red. It’s the color of love (apropos, no?), of power, of passion. It’s stunning in small doses - but we’re not afraid to punch up a look by anchoring it in red. The trick to wearing such a strong color is to center your outfit with it - but then echo the color in small doses elsewhere in the look.
1. Start with the most basic of foundations - a white blouse over a pair of jeans. Of course, our white blouse and jeans each have a twist. The white blouse features a beautiful tie-neck detail, and the jeans are constructed of a deep brown fabric with a shine coating.
2. Anchor the look with your signature piece - a cropped red jacket, featuring shades of blue and grey for contrast.
3. The red doesn’t stop there. Echo the red in your shoes (note the blood red stacked heel) and your sunglasses (classic Wayfarers get a punchy update). But keep your handbag neutral - red here would look a little too matchy-matchy.
