Let’s talk about red, shall we? The colour that seems to be popping up everywhere lately.
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.
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?
