A/W 17’S MOST LOVED COLOR – Second Edition

What did you score on Black Friday and are eyeing to buy on Cyber Monday?
If you went by any of the sales that I pointed you towards, I’m sure you’ve got some really amazing things finding their way to your closet as we speak!
I for one, wasn’t around this time for this major sale season, I headed to Hawaii for a quiet beach vacay! I’m saving the rest of the details for the next blog post!

Last week I showed you show to rock the color red from head to toe, if you haven’t checked it out yet, here you go.
Now, I get that everyone has their inhibitions, so this time I’m bringing you a more subtle way of wearing red, that will not overpower your look, but still stand out just the right amount!

Let’s get down to business, shall we?

Step 1: Pick Prints

If you’re not the type who would go for a solid color completely in any look, then listen up. Prints are just what you need.
I’ve picked a red dress with floral motifs. The high-low design is also worth noticing.

  • Women with a lean figure, lean in… I’ve gotta tell you something: When you’re picking prints, keep it limited. Do not go overboard – this one here is fairly proportionate! Love the design on this cold shoulder dress.
  • For apple shaped women, prints like animals/birds/abstract will look absolutely stunning. Pick larger prints for added effect – like this one. Since A-lines look great on you, this full sleeves dress  is also a great option.

  • If you’re a pear shaped woman, avoid bold and big prints. Abstract patterns, florals, monochromatic patterns will go amazingly with your body style.This dress is just what you need.
  • For women with great curves (hourglass) go crazy with florals! No matter the size. They will look very flattering on your body type. Here’s one that is extremely similar to mine. ASOS has a great choice if you want to go for a maxi dress.

Step 2: Look for Layers
The key to any great winter outfit (even if you’re living in L.A. like me) is to always add a layer.
I was inspired by this fur coat that I saw on the Runway, and I’ve picked a similar item to go with my printed red dress. Black and red is a timeless classic and you can never go wrong with it.

Inspiration: I wanted to pair the black fur coat in a more carefree fashion, that’s why I went for a dress instead of the red shirt/pant combo displayed below.

Step 3: Accessorize

Lately I have been obsessed with plaid prints, as is evident in my previous post.

So when I came across this cute plaid bag, it was love at first sight. It is advisable to keep only a couple of patterned items in your outfit so that you do not go overboard with prints.

Isn’t it funny how we use fashion to emote ourselves?
To be honest, the flowers on my dress – is me trying to hold on to Hawaii a little bit longer.
I’m sure you’re going to see plenty of #ThrowbackThursday and #MajorMissing posts coming your way from me on Instagram, so be prepared!

      It’s one of my favorites too and after having seen it on the Fall/Winter Runway so many times, I couldn’t help but buy some more stunning pieces in this color. I’m hoping you find my outfit suggestions useful!

    Love this dress so much and love how you styled it with black accents! Such a retro and classic look.
