Nothing is more cliche than wearing red or pink for Valentine’s Day, right? Wrong! Believe it or not, when you focus on fit & fabric, the go-to color(s) of love can actually be sexy, sweet and even sophisticated!
Look to marry the color with modern pieces, like a classic peacoat or fitted peplum dress. The ease of dressing in red or pink this Valentine’s Day (and season) will surprise you. The biggest misconception when you are embracing a fun color choice is that fast-fashion should be your only source (think: Forever21, H&M, Target). While the price may be right for some, quality lacks. Instead of following a trend or searching for something kitschy, shop for quality fabric, tailored well-fitted silhouettes in vibrant hues that will pair well with neutral tone wardrobe staples. Pair these lovely brights with everything from a white pump to a classic trouser for an effortless ensemble.
Some Style Tips
– Layering with a pink or red outerwear choice not only conveys a sense of confidence, but also brightens up these dreary winter days. In a warmer environment? Throw on a lightweight cardigan or easy duster coat.
– Steer clear of anything too short, tight, or revealing- maintain a subtly sexy, sophisticated look by focusing on fabric, paying attention to length and dressing for your figure.
– If focusing on a garment in these colors seems like too much for your taste, try accessorizing by adding a classic handbag, fun clutch or sexy pump to your classic, neutral based look instead.
