Rock Red Like A Boss

I used to be intimidated by the color red and would always pass it up when shopping. I thought it would be so hard to find a variation of the shade that would work for me but in this past year, I have become kind of obsessed with the color. It first started with a little red lipstick here and there, and then I scooped up a red accessory or two, and the next thing I know I have found myself being drawn to red dresses when shopping. Maybe it is the holiday spirit influencing me because the color red is everywhere at this time of year so it could be affecting me and how I view the color. Which started me to thinking about if there is a way to wear the color during the holiday season without looking like a Mrs. Claus impersonator. So I started thinking about it seriously and not only did I find one of the cutest red dresses ever but I also realized the pitfalls to avoid so it doesn't look like you are trying to audition to be Santa's next wife. If you are going to wear red and white together most definitely skip the fur accents. If you still want to rock faux fur or fur you can but it works better if you just wear one color from head to toe so it will not veer into costume territory. Also, when wearing red during the holiday season only pair it with a holiday print if it is on an accessory without going overboard. These are just a few tips to keep in mind and I did follow them when I created and styled today's fashion set.
