There’s nothing better than a pop of color. When things get too monochromatic, a single color can brighten up your entire day. Whether it’s a pair of classic heels, a gorgeous clutch, or a warm jacket — anything will do as long as you’re keeping things colorful.
For the Rainbow Fashion Series, I’ll be taking you through every color of the rainbow and showing you just how much potential these colors hold. After all, certain shades are more than just visually stunning. They can affect your entire mood.
This first post is, of course, based on the color red. When I think of red, I think of red lips. Of cherry snow cones. Of Christian Louboutins. It’s safe to say that red is memorable, so let’s see what we can find:
This color is called “Brilliant Flame” and, honestly, I think that’s the perfect way to describe this jacket. It is bright and full of energy. If it were mine, I feel as though putting it on in the morning would instantly make me feel more awake. In that sense, it truly shows that red is one powerful color.
In my humble opinion, there is nothing more stunning than an elegant red dress — especially if it’s tailored to perfection. With its fit-and-flare style, this Aritzia number has an element of playfulness that makes it perfect for the upcoming season. And, really, who can resist these precise pleats?
If you’re looking for something that’s both colorful and whimsical, this is the handbag for you. Personally, I love it when people spice things up with uncommon accessories. It really helps your personality shine.
Speaking of accessories, what about shoes? When it comes to the color red, I think it can be a bit too much if you put it on your feet. BUT, I found a pair of sandals that will definitely prevent this from happening. The above jelly sandals aren’t all-over red and are more understated than your average red shoe. They provide a pop of color, but won’t make everyone ignore the rest of your ensemble.
Red is the color of romance and this blouse proves it. It’s flowy and ethereal. Perfect for fall and winter. You can wear it with a casual pair of jeans or dress it up for work. To put it simply: this is the definition of an effortless pop of color.
If you want to wear trousers, you’re going to have to be very picky about the shade that you choose. When it comes to a tone that’s not overwhelming, Nordstrom’s “Cardinal Red” does the trick. These pants are colorful, but they aren’t difficult to wear. You can pair them with some black, white, or grey accessories and you are good to go.
I am absolutely in love with these earrings. They are dainty, yet daring. They remind me of Autumn. Most importantly, they are burgundy, which is one of my favorite seasonal colors. Then again, it’s also great that something as simple as an earring can serve as a colorful addition to your outfit.
The takeaway: think colorfully, especially when it comes to your personal style and self-expression.
