It is getting really cold, and when you look around, most people are walking everywhere on the streets wearing long, heavy coats with dark intense colors like black, charcoal, Catalina blue or dark jungle green. There is almost not even one touch of color in the accessories.
Throughout the years, I can understand people investing in clothing products with dark colors that would be easier to mix during future winter seasons, after all there is always summer, spring and even fall to get the color out. Of course, indoors is another story, but let’s not be afraid of bright colors during the winter.
Last year, I wrote an article about the beauty of the Ugly Christmas Sweater. This time around, we at TheBlot Magazine suggest you to bring the excitement of this festive season to your choice of colors for any party you might attend — or just use it to make your day beautiful and more alive.
What color besides red is so hot, exciting, sensual and happy at the same time? None. You might say hot pink also, but for this Christmas, please wear red and its shades whenever you can. Even if you only have a touch of it on your ensemble, it will lift the look and bring a more approachable and happy attitude. Also, this is the perfect season to wear it without being associated with Valentine ’s Day.
We selected few items for the “Lady in Red” in you — at different prices range and styles — but keep in mind that no matter what, these can also be investment pieces for years to come, so wear the read away and out!
