Pops of Red

Location: San Diego, CA

Among the abundance of neutral and dark pieces in my closet, there are a few vibrant pops of red. Occasionally, I feel the need to break one of these babies out. Whether it's the result of a surge of confidence, a desire to stand out, or a spontaneous whim, I never regret rocking red when I get that urge.

I've always been a fan of the color red in all of its forms. In the Fall and Winter, a deep maroon fits perfectly with the mood of the season. In the Summer, rocking pops (or full outfits) of bright red is refreshing, daring, and eye-catching.

For this particular look, I paired a red crop top by Majorelle with a black patterned TopShop skirt. I love the way the floral in the skirt ties in the red of the top. I topped the outfit off with some simple black booties and a grey bag to break up the red and black.

If I'm not feeling up for rocking this much red, another one of my favorite ways to include the color in any look is to throw on a red lip. Here are some of my favorite red lip colors/products:

Stilla - Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick - Beso

Mac - Retro Matte Lipstick - Ruby Woo

YSL - Vinyl Cream Lip Stain - Rhythm Red

Tom Ford - Ultra Rich Lip Color - Les Mepris

Red is known to represent power and strong emotion. I absolutely love the dominance of the color and the way it adds warmth to any look. Thanks so much for reading and I look forward to having you back!

Warmly,
