Red Pop.

pop of red

I saw a few pins on Pinterest over the last few days where the pièce de résistance in the outfit was a bright, happy pop of red. As frigid temps (and stormy, snowy skies) have taken over much of the nation, it got me thinking how red is such a perfect color to accent with this time of year. Isn’t its warmth and bold attitude the complete antithesis to the gray skies? I browsed around and found a few looks I really loved; below is how you can re-create them, plus lots of other pops of red at every price point!

    Hooray! I have a sweater that’s shaped like a red moto jacket and was having a hard time styling it other than with distressed jeans. This is a great look ( I just ain’t wearing it today–I’ll perish in the cold!).

    So true! This time of year I tend to revert to a wardrobe of all neutrals…mostly all black! I love the idea of popping that with red shoes…those sling backs in particular! I definitely want to incorporate this into my wardrobe the next few months.

    I love Rachel Parcell’s outfit here – she’s so slender, all of her layering looks perfect. I enjoy a good pop of red, which is probably why I love red lipstick so much!

    I’m all for the Off Duty look! I’ve been eying a cheaper version of the J.Crew darby loafers in Strawberry. They would be perfect year round and like you said, red adds a much needed pop to the grey and gloom of winter!

    I love all of these! I love red but probably tend to use it more than a pop.. but I think it’s more powerful as a pop. Yay!
