Red is the color I reach for when I want to project authority and feel more confident. Everyone can wear red; the magic happens when you find the correct tone of red for your coloring.
I am showing an example of a casual daytime look. If I wore this fun, edgy top to go out to dinner, I would carry a small black clutch bag, wear black or white slim fitting pants and black or nude shoes. If I wore this top as formal wear, I would carry a beaded evening bag and wear slim fitting brocade pants with glittering beaded sandals. Considering the cut-out on one shoulder, I would not clutter the neckline with anything more than a dramatic pair of silver earrings. My earrings for evening or formal could be much more dramatic with stones included. In the future, I will share more pictures on the Wednesday post of the same item worn dressed up or dressed down.
The bag was offered on my site, but it has sold out now. Similar here. The sunglasses are old by Tory Burch, similar here. The Ralph Lauren espadrille shoes are here.
The jeans are by the Liverpool Jeans Company here. I like to wear this style of jeans or pants with shirts and tunics that are not tucked in because they have a wide, smooth waistband. If I buy the ankle style, they don’t even need to be hemmed.
This tunic by Clara Sunwoo was a gift from My Fair Lady. It is the perfect tone of red for my coloring. The fabric is extremely comfortable. As with all fine knits, you should wear them with care. The material can pick easily from jewelry prongs or straw bags. Wash in cold water. Air dry. Get 15% off your total purchase this month from My Fair Lady with the code August18.
