The color red

Red is not a shy, retiring color.  Not like pastels, that can easily fade into the background.  Red never goes unnoticed.  It's bold. It says something about the wearer.  It will not be ignored.

It is a color that can be worn year round.  There's a shade for everyone.   Some reds are cool with blue undertones and look smashing on pale skin.  Others have an orange cast that goes well with warm skintones. 

Not everyone is brave enough to wade into the pond of red by buying a dress, skirt or pants.  That's quite a commitment.  Luckily, red can be an outfit accent in small doses.  Shoes are the perfect place to sport a pop of red.  Whether it's a heel or a flat, it brings an outfit to life.


 
Too much?  How about going a little smaller?
 
 
 
A red bag amps up the weekend jeans and tee, or a little black dress.
 
 
Whenever I'm asked what my favorite color is, I answer red.  It's the color of passion and joy, life and vitality.  It fuels creativity.  I've been a little shy about wearing it, it does attract attention.  It also helps me feel energized and happy whether I'm wearing an accent or an entire garment.  It is a color everyone should try.

I love a shot of red with any outfit. I have a closet full or basics — lots of tees and jeans — and red shoes always add some 'zazz.
