Head to toe red was a major trend on spring 2018 runways. Although I’m a monochrome pastel girl I love me some red!
Red is a bright color that can take over anywhere. I mean, there is a reason why the stop sign is red.
People get scared to wear all red as an everyday look (let’s not talk about the ‘we don’t wear red in my church people). but if you want to make a statement, head to toe red is for you.
Wearing head to toe red can go bad really fast, but this post is to help you prevent that.
DON’T mix up the hues too much
One of the most common advice I hear when it comes to styling monochromatic outfits is to play with various hues of one color. I disagree in the case of red. Sticking to the same tonality of one red shade will help you achieve a clean, smooth look that doesn’t clash or appear too childish.
Jazz it up with minimal accessories
Less is more when it comes to such a strong combo so accessorize minimally. You can always rely on a pair of glasses like I did to magnify your cool-girl vibe (plus, it helps you wear red confidently). And something as simple as gold hoops will add the pizazz you need.
Break it up with texture
Monochromatic looks are all about details, so don’t forget to play with texture. This jumper was the perfect piece to add to my wide legged pants. I love the knit on the smooth fabric and sometimes all you need is a relaxed silhouette to help you balance things out.
Throw in contrasting accessories
While red shoes and handbag could have worked harmlessly, I threw in this brown bag and scarf to add a blast of contrast. We all need a little contrast in our outfits every time.
Wear it proudly
I don’t know how many times I’ve stressed the importance of attitude when it comes to wearing something out of the ordinary, but it applies here again. Red is not for the faint of heart. If you’re going to brave the head to toe red look, you need a fierce attitude to escort it.
