I went to 2 high schools, both of which had me in the Red Houses when I was young. We competed against the Yellow, Green and Blue houses in music, sport, swimming and debating. So from a young age, I had to wear daggy red Polo shirts. But now the appeal of red has returned to me. Red just brightens every outfit and it is beautiful for any skin tone.
Having complied a collection of red outfits from various Streetchic sites such as The Sartorialist, Elle.com, Garance Dore and various other fabulous blog sites, here are the ladies in red. Red really is such a fun colour to wear, don’t you always feel dressed up when you throw on something red? Whether that be a crimson bag, some red shoes, or a garment in scarlet?
My favourite red photo: She is wearing a red jumpsuit!!! I am so envious. Judging by that slim figure, the structured high cheekbones and that fearless stance, I am guessing she is a model- off-duty model. I like it how she’s teamed it up with a boyfriend blazer and leather thongs.
Sitting pretty: the girl with the serene expression- I love her cute brooch and the drapery of her red jacket. Lovely scarf too.
Carolina Engman of A Perfect Guide. She is one gorgeous blonde. Recently she was featured in Vogue Germany, the lucky girl! Ok, so this is more pink than red, but I had to sneak this vintage cape in!
What a lovely wrap! Love her hair and her Pocahontas-style turquoise earrings. This was a Garance Dore photo. She has captured the joy and warmth of the moment so well.
Here is Garance holding her high-tech camera. I love her little quilted mini and those fabulous heels. Her friend has a covetable red Balenciaga.
I know you are robably thinking that she is a little furry…but her red booties are to die for! They’re certainly attention-grabbing. Who’s wearing a furry jumper?
And finally, a Gwen Stefani look-alike. Peroxided hair, tick. Big dark sunnies, tick. Red hot style, tick! I love everything she is wearing. Great accessories- love the blue belt, the brown toe and her awesome 2tone pumps. The backdrop provides a brilliant contrast- beauty can certainly be found in every corner.
