 I have to admit, at first I had major reservations about letting red back in to my life. You see, for many of my younger years (circa. early 00’s for the record) my wardrobe consisted of only black, white, red and of course diamontes, the skimpier the better!  Even though black and white are still predominant today, my wardrobe has definitely evolved quite a lot since then and red has always reminded me of those super tacky times.. until now that is.

WHY RED?

I’m sure you have noticed an influx of red on your instagram feeds (where all good, and admittedly sometimes bad, fashion trends are born) Red is such a striking colour and one that definitely makes a statement and draws a lot of attention, so I can see why it is so popular! I still think it can be a little bit too over the top, personally (baby steps guys!) so I prefer a more casual, relaxed approach to adding red into my look. Think pops of red with with a graphic tee or embroidered patches on denim.

Jenelle and I recently got together to shoot a few looks and this red inspired look turned out to be one of my favourites! It’s always fun to see how fellow fashionistas interpret a trend. Jenelle, a self confessed lover of red went for an all over red look with a deep red silky maxi (styled to perfection with an equally stunning flared sleeve top!) whereas I opted for a more muted red tone (that kind of almost looks pink, go figure!) and of course paired it back with denim.

Are you a fan or red? What’s your favourite way to wear it?

    Love the ruffles on your top! 🙂

    Red is such a power colour so it can be a little daunting to wear sometimes, I think a top like yours is a good way to wear it – as you say it doesn’t look so red, almost pink, so it’s easier to wear. Both of you look great in your red outfits, from a little to a lot of red! 🙂

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend 🙂

    I always love your shoots together. Your top looks more pink to me and I think it pairs well with her stronger red. I love red but don’t have a ton of it is my wardrobe. It is a strong color.
