Ask The Stylist: ROUGE

Alright gang. We all know it and see it and its RED. We're talking red as in cherry red, poppy red, lava red, candy apple red, and all of the other billion types of red out there. The trend is back and its hitting us with its brightest shade yet. So here it is, but what do we do with it? Sometimes wearing red can go all wrong, but if you know how to rock it, you're going to stand out in the crowd with confidence.

Since wearing bright red shades can be a bit of a toughey, when you're deciding to wear a piece that's red, be it: a shirt, a skirt, or a pair of shorts or pants, you need to recognize that its this red item that is the star of your outfit. In working with red, keeping things simple is the best way to go. Black, white, and tan always does the trick, along with other neutral colours that don't disrupt the brightness that is already part of your outfit. However, if you feel like walking on the wild side - don't be afraid to match your look with other bright summery colours. Warm tones like yellows and oranges go well, even a royal blue would be a nice addition.

Accessories that help to compliment bright red shades include jewelry of all types; but especially look good in gold, silver, and bronze. What you don't want to do though is overdress your outfit with too many accessories, but instead balance it with items that will make it look popping and yet, complete. For example, when wearing a red mini skirt, a nice way to complete the look would be with a white blouse, a pair of black pumps, and some frilly earrings and bangles that will give you that extra feminine touch (let's not forget to get those nails done, now that it's summer!)

Take a look below at the outfits that inspire NET A LA MODE and let us know what you think! Happy Monday everyone!
