Lately I've been majorly drawn to the color red, which used to be a shade that didn't exist in my wardrobe. I don't know if it's the holiday season or what, but recently it's become my favorite way to stand out. It's clean, classic, chic, and bold. (P.S. - the shirt I'm wearing in the photo below is actually the exact one pictured above, by Pari Desai). The specific way I'm crushing on it is in all-American, vintage-inspired fabrics and cuts: mainly, cotton and cotton ribbed tops and turtlenecks. A long-sleeved red turtleneck or crew-neck sweater-top looks so effortless tucked into a pair of black or pin-stripe trousers, with denim, with a leather mini, or under a dress or pair of overalls. I also like the idea of a red sweatshirt (like below), or touch of red leather, and I've been collecting red vintage t-shirts as well. If you were ever going to embrace the color, December is the month to do it, so I hope this inspires you to wear a punchy little red piece over the coming weeks!
I fell immediately in love with this cozy, red, ribbed sweater-top when I first saw it at Assembly (I promise I have absolutely no affiliation with the store, it really is just where I get 90% of my clothes, the pants above included). In the few weeks I've owned it, I've already worn it at least five times–with my most distressed pair of vintage Levi's to brunch; with a pair of cropped black trousers to a meeting; underneath a leather minidress for a date, and to work with long and loose black trousers like above. I already know it's my Christmas day top!
