Trend To Try: Power Red

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

While the color red is nothing new or innovative, it's making a fashion comeback for fall. Typically a color that we see a lot of during the Christmas holiday season and Valentine's Day, red is popping up all over the place, Everything from shoes, booties, earrings, sweaters, coats, and dresses is red, and it's a powerful red. Vibrant and energetic.

I don't typically wear red due to my rosacea and naturally ruddy complexion. But seeing all the super cute pieces in red has me second guessing myself. Here are a few of the items I have my eye on for fall.

Tie Cuff Blouse
You can't deny that sleeves are having a major moment right now. All the focus is one them, and why not wear a top where the sleeves are definitely the focal point. This top from Ann Taylor is currently 40% and would pair nicely with dark wash denim, white jeans, or black pants.

Artist Tee
This tee reminds me of artists seated on cobblestone sidewalks in Paris effortlessly painting away. It's casual and comfy. The perfect top for fall weekends.

Wool-Blend Coat
I love the idea of a brightly colored coat. If a temporary pop of color is the look you are going for, a coat is a great way to achieve it since you'll be wearing it for only a short time before you get indoors and remove it.

Scallop Trim Sweater
The detail on this scallop trim sweater is adorable, and the price is right at under $40! If you prefer a different color, it's available in 4 others (including royal blue, white, navy blue, and yellow).

Tassel Earrings
With a powerful color such as red, it's better for some of us to wear it via accessories such as earrings, bags, etc. These tassel earrings are eye grabbing so keep the rest of your outfit somewhat minimalistic.

If red is the hot color of the season, then mules are the hot shoe of the season. These feature a plunging topline which is a vast different from the many mules that feature a bow. They are sleek and dare I say a little sexy too.

Crossbody Bag
A simple bag will go a long way to elevating an everyday outfit. A polished ring adds additional flair to this microsuede flap crossbody.

Red Lip Kit from M.A.C.
I love a bold red lip for a night out or even just because. This set includes liner, lipstick, and a finishing gloss for a flawless look.

Flounce Sleeve Flare Dress
I'm a firm believe that the right clothes can lift your spirits and change your attitude. That's the kind of dress this is. It's upbeat and happy. Whether you are heading to the office or to dinner, this dress will work wonders for you.
