Be Bold This Fall In The Color Red

What I love most about red is that it is so empowering! When wearing red, even if it is just red lipstick or a red accent, you can’t help but feel like you stand out from the crowd. Fortunately for us, red is back for fall in a big, BIG way!  Not only is it on trend, but we are seeing super luxe fabrics and even fur!

Harper's Bazaar Special Edition: Runway Report

As a girl who loves red, imagine my delight when I received my new Harper’s Bazaar Special Edition: Runway Report. I have always found inspiration in Harper’s Bazaar, and this month is no exception. As a child, I remember being so excited to shop for back to school outfits because all I wanted was something new in red plaid.

It’s funny how some items come back into style…flipping through my facebook albums, I found myself in head-to-toe red, circa 2008, and thought I’d share my eternal love for red as you will definitely see me bringing out these items again! But wait, are pointy toe shoes still in?  For my sake and yours, I hope they never show face again!

Here I am in red showing off my eternal love for red - pointy heels were considered "chic" in 2008 ONLY!

This year, there are so many ways to style yourself in red without being quite as dramatic as the runway models. Without wearing full-on red, you can easily insert the color into your outfit with a pair of red shoes, tights (remember Blair sporting red tights in Gossip Girl?), or a red handbag.  For those who are still unsure about trying red out, I say go for it! You will feel the confidence boost immediately! So worth it!!  Below are some great red options that are affordable and super stylish.  Let me know if you get anything red!

Blair - wearing red tights in Gossip Girl - ahead of the trend?

Sam Edelman 'Quinn' Pumps will add flare to a neutral outfit.

The House of Harlow 'Val' clutch is a great night out handbag that features luxe hardware!

The Longchamp 'Roseau' embossed tote oozes luxury and is perfect for everyday!

    Love these simple & easy way to incorporate red this fall! I am one who never wears red, so this will be a color that definitely gets me out of my comfort zone. I think I’ll try the red tights, or even a red headband! Thxxx
