Red is definitely a colour that is trending this season and one of my favourite, favourites – to me it symbolises love and passion! Red hearts, red roses – the colour of LOVE! Wearing red makes me feel super sexy!
There are so many shades of red when it comes to fashion; I have never been able to wear anything with an orange base – my skin tone suites a “Blue-based” red. I think it is so important to be aware of what shades suit your colouring especially when it comes to a colour like red. If you get it wrong it can be a fashion disaster!
The other important factor to consider is just how much red is right for the occasion or outfit, as it is a very striking colour and too much of it can be over powering!
So consider the less is more approach, for the during the day perhaps just a hint of red, in an accessory or red lips or nails can make a dramatic statement and enhance your outfit. You can always spice up your ensemble by adding a pair of “killer’ red heels – super sexy!
For the evening, however, I feel that it is a completely different story, again dependant on the occasion but there is nothing more striking than a long flowing scarlet gown!
The “red carpet trend” is to pretty much wear red from head to toe, red lips, red dress, red shoes – I guess when you are famous and gorgeous, you set the trend! I love these gorgeous gals in their fabulous, red couture!
So step out there, be bold, be daring and embrace this passionate colour – you only live once, so why be boring! Especially if you celebrate Valentines day, really get in the mood and wear something red!
