On the Streets: You Can Rely on Red

by jennine on October 13, 2011

red plaid trench

Yesterday on Twitter, I asked, “Do you think red pants will hang on another season?” The overwhelming response to that was yes! And “Yes, I hope so, because I just bought a pair” and “Yes, I still love my red pants.”

The thing is, no matter what, you can wear red. Any season, any year, and anywhere you wear red, it will make a statement. How often had you made a statement with blue? Or wore your winter yellow? Or spring orange? Unlike black, red brings your skin to life. Just find the right red and you’re set to go. Some people claim they don’t look good in red, but I personally have never met a person who didn’t look AMAZING in red. Perhaps as much as I like to say I don’t have a favorite color, the truth is if I had to pick, it would certianly be red.

Love the pops of colour! The colour red is definitely the best.

LOve the second image red slouchy top + zig-zag leggins.
It’s also hilarious that the builder is in on the red trend as well !

Red is an amazing colour to style with. It grabs your attention, yet it is not bright-in-your-face as the neon colours. I like how the girl styles it with the plaid coat and stockings, it’s so edgy in a way.

guilty as charged. I am one of those people who believes they don’t look good in red… but people always tell me I look great in red. It’s one of those things, I suppose. LOL.

Either way, I love my red pants AND I’d really love to get my hands on that oversized cropped red sweater…CUTE!

Red is freakin’ fabulous! I truly wear it all year long, especially July-January. That first dress is flawless!

I’m really obsessed with red right now - red nail polish, red sweaters, red lipstick, red dresses, etc. I just love the pop of color it can bring to any causal or dressy look. I think it’s a great way to add a little splash of special to a fall/winter wardrobe.

I’m quite the fan of red, yet it’s not a color I’ve truly thrown myself into. On that note, perhaps I’ll invest in a red sweater this winter and go all out Christmas-galore. It’s a plan!

I totally agree and for now I will not discourage myself from wearing red. I had always thought that green, black, gray and white are the colors that fit my personality. I tried wearing red in a reunion and I am surprise with the feed-backs on good I look with the color.
