I’m not entirely certain where my enthusiasm for red comes from: it’s a color that flatters me, so that’s nice, but the attraction is about more than that. I also like that it is so unstoppably bold, and that it plays well with so many other colors. Wearing red puts a little spring in my step, too, because it makes me feel like I made an effort not to default to the same old black.
A nice shrunken trench that’s kind of similar to the one Giovanna Battaglia is wearing in the above picture, except for that hers is leather.
Seriously, could this dress be any easier?
This chiffon top is rather sweet.
I like the business on the sleeves of this blouse.
A lovely floral blouse with a cool asymmetrical hem.
I’d love a red blazer—it would look fantastic with just jeans and a graphic tee.
There’s a very subtle dot print on this well-priced dress.
I own this Iro jacket in white, and would almost consider buying it in red too, because it’s so versatile, and is a good stand-in for a blazer when you’re just not in the mood for a blazer but need to look polished.
The side pleat on this skirt is a subtle-but-statement-y touch.
Women who can pull off red jeans are cool and I wish I was like them.
I can never resist a shaggy sweater.
A very well-priced, work-worthy blouse.
The shirttail hem on this cashmere sweater makes it an excellent choice for when you’re in a casual mood.
A very streamlined, pretty dress with a really nice neckline.
Just a good striped tee.
I’d wear these pull-on pants with a crisp white button-down.
I’m not the hugest fan of an off-the-shoulder look, but I do think this dress is quite graceful.
My friend Pavia is looking for wide-leg trousers, so I included these for her.
One-shoulder silhouettes are another look that is not so much my thing, but I think I’d wear this Mara Hoffman dress all summer.
This blouse is nicely oversized. I’d go for the half-tuck.
The matchy-clashiness of the prints on this dress appeals.
And here’s a post I did on grey clothes for (mostly) under $100.
