Time to Be Bold!

Fashion lovers everywhere cannot stop wearing this color that the majority of us are afraid to wear… Well get ready because it is time to be bold! This past fashion week, there was one hue we couldn’t help but notice, not only because of its inherent vibrancy but also because it’s not a color you often see people wear.

The color (in case you hadn’t already guessed) is red—bright, bright red. The color has been psychologically proven to inspire passion and confidence in the workplace, and fashion girls are taking its magical powers to the next level by wearing it to the office and beyond.

Since it’s a shade that commands attention, the color can often come off as intimidating, and sometimes, you might not be up for that. However, the fashion community has taken a stand to prove that women everywhere should try this rich color. Whether you choose to carry a simple red bag, wear red ankle boots, or step out in a full-on red look, this trend is one that can transform your outfit. In case you are still weary, the plethora of gorgeous street style images and our shopping roundup ahead will convince you.

Some of my favorite ways to dress up “red” are with jeans, booties and chunky knits. Layering a dress over your jeans is an easy way to create a forward look. Not into dresses and denim? Try adding a pop of color to your outfit with bright red booties or a chunky red statement necklace. Another red tip could be being the boldest: why not try a vibrant outerwear piece? It is definitely a great way to stand out in the crowd!
