SEEING RED


So you’ve bought all those camel-colored pieces for fall, now what? Well, your next logical step is adding in the perfect pop of color for contrast. This season, the fashion gods call for red (take my advice and mix in a touch of leopard too)…

Generally speaking, I’d suggest seeking out a smaller splash of color in the form of an accessory or perhaps even a little silk blouse–instead of, say, a bright red jacket (although that can work too). Nudes are so hot right now that neutral tones should definitely be the focus of your look, but this touch of red will surely be the cherry atop your stylin’ sundae of an outfit…

Because let’s be honest: red = sexy. Even more so when there’s juuuuust enough of it to keep onlookers enticed. So you see, this is where your sexily sandwiched accent comes in. Here are my recommendations to get you started on your quest for crimson… because red always keeps things interesting:
