How I Wear My Red
This past week I was featured by Adrienne on
for their November topic, "How I Wear My Jeans."
The December topic will be "How I Wear My Red," so since I wore Red yesterday, I thought I'd get a jump start.
I bought this lovely Preston & York basic dress a couple years ago. Because I never wear anything only one way, I thought it would be fun to show how this Red dress can be changed and used for various occasions. It is an ageless style.
One of the things I like about this style dress is it can be worn year round here in the south. Let me show you only a few ways to make it the go-to dress for all seasons and occasions.
The simple neckline makes it fun to wear a variety of necklaces and scarves.
I am wearing black pumps in the picture above, but look how sassy a pair of leopard shoes look with red.
That's the only touch of leopard you would need. Or with a solid color shoe add a leopard cardigan or scarf. It's a great combination, but just don't over do it.
For cooler weather, I add a variety of jackets such as this multicolored from Coldwater Creek.
This is such a versatile jacket because it goes with just about anything from a simple dress to a colorful tee and jeans.
Think about adding a khaki, navy or black jacket with coordinating accessories.
When you want to be less casual, add a vest or cardigan and flats or boots.
For a special night out to the symphony, concert or date with your special man, simply add something with bling.
These are only a few ways to dress up or down a basic dress.
TIP: Never buy an item of clothing unless you have at least 3 different ways to wear it. This is how you will have a versatile and long lasting wardrobe.
This is "How I Wear My Red!"
