We always feel like kids in a candy store at this time of year. All the new fall clothes are arriving and there’s so much choice that it’s hard to know what to buy.
One thing that is for sure on our lists is something RED. Red is fall’s boldest new hue and it’s exciting and gorgeous! This season you will have your pick of hundreds of reds from Santa Claus red to scarlet, crimson, tomato red, burgundy and garnet.
There are lots of ways to wear red too. For example:
- a solid streak of red such as a single red dress – That’s what I am on the lookout for!
- mixing different reds tone on tone for a dramatic and slimming effect
- color blocking using red to highlight your best features
- red as an accessory, like as a purse or a shoe
I must admit I ( Deborah) have always been a bit of a red-aholic. I feel so happy and energetic wearing red, but I know there are some women who shy away from red because it makes them feel “too visible.”
To that we say, Visible, schmizable! Ladies, after 40 we need to look little more lively. God knows we’ve got everything else dragging us down.
Try a little red. It will light you up and make you look vibrant, not to mention modern and right in style. Send us a picture of you in your new red fall purchase and we’d love to post it.
In the meantime, congratulations to Loretta Marley, the winner of our contest. You have won these cool red jeans from Not Your Daughter’s Jeans.
