A Pop of Red

Spruce up your wardrobe this S/S '11 with a pop of red. This color is invigorating, carefree and adds a touch of va va voom without being over the top. It is best worn interspersed into your wardrobe rather than a full-blown ensemble.

Audrey Hepburn adds a splash of fun in a red cardigan
Red pairs great with dark denim

Gucci's advertisement offers punches of red color

Cherry tomato, scarlet, crimson, fire engine, wine and candy apple are just some of the gorgeous hues that red offers. I think red looks amazing with dark denim, brown leather accessories, white, black or silver. Or color block like Gucci's ad with other bold colors like a bright royal purple or cool teal blue.

  1. I might just have to try some of your suggestions. For whatever reason I have been AFRAID to wear red most of my life -lame I know. To me, it's so bold and powerful and I feel like I'm calling everyone in the room to look at me!

    I just need to start in small doses...

  2. love the first image! the weather has been so gray that it makes me want to wear pops of red

  3. I have a love/hate relationship with red for some reason- but I agree, a pop of it is perfect. especially right now, I need to shake the winter blues. I'm pretty sure those rag and bone jeans will do the trick... Officially added to spring wish list!
    And ps - isn't Audrey Hepburn just perfection? Love her!!


  4. I really love that "Anthropologie red frock", it's cute! Following you honey :) xxx

  6. I bought a red skirt at H&M yesterday! This post makes me excited to wear it tomorrow.

    I have those red TOMS. Get them. I love them.

  7. Ooh the Gucci campaign is awesome and how cute is the Madewell shirt and the Dolce Vita shoes!

  9. Susan, red has always been my pick-me-up color. I even use it in summers to give a dash of color to my outfits. Sometimes a red lipstick on a somber outfit completes the look for me.
