How To Front Tuck Or Tie Up Any Shirt In Your Closet

The Red That's Right For You

Red comes into fashion every year around this time, but in 2017, red is truly the trend color of the holidays. In most Austin shops, there's numerous pieces in many different varieties of red to choose from.

This makes it equally as difficult to shop for your new holiday piece as it is exciting, because the process can turn from fun to overwhelming with the amount of options. 

So this week, I'm giving you some guidance on how to pick your pieces for your lifestyle and the best red for your personal color palette.

The first step in choosing your red (or any color) is knowing your color palette.

Which is why a color analysis is always the first step I go through with my clients to figure out what version of each color looks best on them. 

Everyone can wear every color, but there are certain characteristics within the color (i.e. lightness, darkness, warmth...) that make it well suited to your natural attributes. 

Below are three palettes to consider when choosing your right red. 

BRIGHT + LIGHT

For this palette, try a coral red. The clarity and lightness of the hue play into your color palette and accentuate your eyes. 

If you're a professional woman who heads into an office regularly, add this color to your wardrobe through a blazer. While it may feel like a bold choice (and it is), you can balance the brightness of the coral jacket with neutrals. Add a camel turtle neck and jeans for business casual or cream trousers and a champagne blouse for business formal. Finish both looks with nude pumps. 

DEEP + COOL

For this palette, try a garnet or apple red. The darkness of garnet will highlight your skin tone, while a brighter hue like apple will intensify your hair color. 

To incorporate an apple-like hue, try a patterned shift dress in red & black plaid. This piece will work for a holiday weekend event like The Trail of Lights or as a workwear piece during a day at the office. 

Keep warm and heighten the elegance of the look by adding opaque black tights. Finish the outfit with black cowboy boots for casual occasions or a bold leopard pump for work. 

DARK + WARM

If your features fit this palette, you'll want to try a brick red or scarlet this season.

Since your palette is deep, you can pair these hues with navy or play into the warmth of the colors through camel or gold neutrals.

Got a holiday party coming up? Incorporate these reds into your holiday outfit through a variety of statement jackets. Try a faux fur jacket for a retro vibe or tartan plaid for classic touch.
