I Wear Red

Monday was a little hectic, so I missed my usual Monday Morning Inspiration post. Rather than skip it all together, I thought I would share a few pictures that I have found to be inspiring.

With Christmas quickly approaching, red will soon be the color of the season. I have encountered many who are rather uneasy about wearing red. Most everyone can wear red, it just depends on the shade. Red can have a blue undertone, and it can also have a very orangey undertone. Depending on your skin tone, one or the other will look wonderful. 

If red is a little shocking to you, try pairing a fabulous tailored jacket with jeans. It does draw attention, but it makes the garment look so well put together.

I have always enjoyed big, oversized coats. This one in red tweed is fabulous.

Love how this red tweed tailored coat was paired with a black and white dress and a gray bag and booties.

This coat is from the Oscar De La Renta 2016 Resort line. The subtle piecing tones down the red, but the coat still pops.

When thinking about dressing for the holidays, I really like this look. The sweater does not need to be embellished to make this look work.

This dress is vintage, but I love the idea of taking a basic sheath dress and adding feathers to the hem. How festive! 

A very labor intensive dress, also vintage, but it's just so pretty!!!

This dress would be gorgeous as a gown or as a shorter dress. 

This vintage jacket is easier to make than you may think. The sleeve is a little tricky, but the collar is a breeze. It's basically just a revere collar. We did one HERE. The gathered collar is a rectangle with a little shaping.  

This holiday season, throw on a little red and allow yourself to shine!!! After all, life is far too short to sit in the shadows :)
