Other than black, I think red is the next color that fills up and adds so much life to my wardrobe.  In my humble opinion, there are three red must-haves: a great red lip color, a lush red bag, and a statement red coat.  And one more, red suede shoes!

Red is such a beautiful color all year round and especially for the holidays.  I’ve tried a lot of reds and find that I gravitate towards red shades with blue undertones.  Because of my warm undertone, I find that my complexion works best with deep reds.  I love garnet, wine, carmine, and crimson reds.  After searching for so long, I found my go-to red lip color – Stila ‘Fiery’ red lip color.  A lush deep red that literally stays all day!  It’s one of the best matte lip colors out there!  As for a bag, a great velvet or suede red is timeless.  And a red coat is so much fun!  It elevates an all-black outfit, complements a casual denim look, and is so striking with stripes.  I love this Storets teddy coat (under $100).  I’ve had it for over a year and still get compliments every time I wear it!

Red is such a classic key color.  It will inspire you to be more daring with outfits, it’s a mood enhancer, and it adds so much energy to your wardrobe.  To me, red is a forever color.  Hope you enjoy this styling and happy holidays!
