Red alert!

March 15, 2016


The color RED is energizing. It excites our emotions and motivates us to take action. It also signifies leadership qualities, promoting ambition and determination…. The perfect color to wear to a business meeting!

This is my version of a “power suit.”  The vest is long and dramatic, and the pants are high waisted and wide which elongates the leg,  especially when worn with a heel or wedge.  The “Eloise” pant, is a classic A+O cut.  I added a striped crop top to balance the proportions of the voluminous vest/pant combo.  The belt is a silk tassel rope that adds an element of surprise to the overall look.  What color makes you feel energized?HT3A5849HT3A5823HT3A5889


What I wore:

Vest, crop top, pants, shoes – Alice + Olivia

Clutch – Banana Republic

    I love the red outfit! To me, YELLOW is an energizing color. It brings an element of joy and cheerfulness. When I see yellow, I immediately think of Spring! I am loving so many bold colors this season, but yellow is definitely one I think to be energizing.

    I agree red is power and love all in one. I also like bright colors of yellow, pink, orchid and coral. I don’t look good in red, however, my daughter looks beautiful in red.
