The Lady in Red......

Happy Friday Revolutionaires!

As  I mentioned previously, we will be having guest bloggers and TODAY is the day of our first guest blogger! RozzieNecole


I honor of the movie, Red Tails, let’s honor the Tuskegee Airmen by catwalking in red. Let me start by telling you how much I love the color red. Red sees no season, you can rock a red in on the hottest day in the summer and bundle up in red during the frigid temperatures in the winter. I call red the new neutral because of the ability to mix very well with other colors and prints. This color works almost as a neutral in many cases, being versatile enough to wear with many other colors. Wearing red to the office is an instant symbol of POWER and donning red during a night on the town exudes SEXY.

Start off simple with mixing red with your basics. We all have a classic white, crisp, collared button down, right? Trade in your black slacks for a red skirt and become a fashionable diva behind the desk. Here are your basic neutrals:

Incorporating other colors with red is easy if you think about your primary colors. Remember what colors you mixed with red to make a new beautiful color. For example you mixed blue with red and made purple. Don’t hesitate to grab your sapphire pumps to compliment your red blazer and skinny jeans. Cinching in your waist with a purple belt is perfect with your red dress. Keep these colors in mind to add some flair to your red:

For my fashion mavens, go for a print with your red. Remember, red is now the neutral in your wardrobe. Just remember to only pick one print at a time. If you chose a print that is not black and white, just remember the primary color tricks. FYI: leopard is my favorite print of all time! The mix of red and leopard is very daring and chic.

What to have in red:
-Handbag: a quick pick-me up for your basic outfit is to add a fabulous red handbag. An added bonus is a shiny patent red bag.
-Shoe: from fancy flats to a runway stiletto, you can not go wrong with a red shoe.
-Sheath dress: flattering on EVERY body type and size.
-Blazer: these are not just for the office any more. Add a red blazer to the sexy black bodycon mini dress for a hint of sexy on date night.
