It has been a while since I last shared a double up style post with my friend Emily. Since we are both obsessed with red, here are two ways to wear the high impact colour.
A YEAR LATER…
Now, someone with a very keen eye will point out that Emily (fellow Perth fashion blogger behind She Does) and I shot these photos last year. It’s true! This and a number of other posts have laid dormant in my draft file for longer than I’d care to admit. However, I really liked these photos and outfits so I wanted to share them.
Though I can only speak for myself, this outfit is one that I would and am still wearing, a year on. But perhaps that wouldn’t come as such a surprise. One thing about my personal style is that I love to find things that are good investments which I will wear for years. Slip dresses are certainly simple and fit right into that category!
RED: TWO WAYS TO WEAR THE HIGH IMPACT COLOUR
One statement red top with the perfect high waist jeans and one red slip dress layered with a silky top. Two ways to wear red that I think are equally as easy going. Both looks feel elevated enough to be perfect for an event or night out but would also feel sleek but not fussy for a nice dinner.
RED RED RED
I have talked about my love of red, a lot. Some examples of this can be found here and here. There is a humble collection of red pieces in my closet that stand out amongst the neutrals. Proudly so too! Red is the colour I go to when I am feeling most carefree, vibrant and want to make an impact! It is also the colour I reach for if I need to look more awake than I feel.
Side note: If you ever want to look more awake or disguise tired eyes, red lipstick does the trick.
When we shot these photos, Emily had finally embraced red for the first time. Prior to this, it was mostly denim and neutrals. This finely printed top can come across looking pink, but it is a red and white print. The day she got a pair of red boots was one I was most impressed with! I don’t even have any red shoes! Somehow. I will have to rectify this.
