WAYS TO WEAR: RED

Happy (almost) Lunar New Year! I have been feeling rather festive lately, so one of my current go-to pieces is this bright and cheerful tunic sweater. It’s great to lounge in, and can be easily accessorized (try a stacked chain necklace) when you need to jump on an impromptu video call

The color red conveys a range of meanings and emotions–from vigor to love to war to luck. What it never is, however, is melancholy, which is primarily what whelms me during pandemic surges. As there are few causes for celebration, I haven’t felt inspired to wear red. But when I do, I always feel better. And I like how it complements my complexion–as my grandma once said, “red is your color.” (Thanks, grandma. Even if it’s kind of everyone’s color too.)

What’s unique about the color red is its statement-making power: wear it head to toe, or just as an accent; it’ll enliven even the dullest color story.

Below I’ve rounded up some outfits from years past which feature the color red, grouped roughly by its role in an outfit. (Each photo is linked to its respective outfit post, for those who want outfit details or additional photos.)

So I got bored in a meeting this week and decided to change the blog theme. I proceeded to break a few several things in the process, so please let me know if anything isn’t working properly. I should have everything back in working order next week.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! And for those in the nor’easter’s path, stay safe, warm, and dry!
