Feel the summer heat by wearing Firey Red!
“Red is the ultimate cure for sadness.” – Bill Blass
One of the best ways to feel the summer heat is by wearing Firey Red! From nail color to lip color, armcandy and clothing, it is the perfect way to portray confidfence and boost your self esteem! However with such a powerful color, the key is to find the perfect balance with complimentary colors to avoid looking like Elmo. Red is the color of fire, love, passion, energy and sensuality, and it is certainly a color that awakens the spirit and enlivens emotions. This red has a orange undertone which makes it the perfect shade of red to pair with brighter colors like yellow and green as well as neutrals like black, white and blue. This color is especially good for women with a warm skin tone like myself, as it brightens up your complexion and makes you shine even more. However, even if you have a cooler skin tone, you can still wear this color and look amazing.There are many ways to wear red. You can wear red in a subtle way by wearing a red shoe, bag, nail color, lip color or you can make a bolder statement with the color. Whatever your comfort zone with the color red, there is a way to add this color to your wardrobe for everyone. During the summer I love to fill my wardrobe with bold colors that I can pair easily with other brighter bolder colors and during the winter, naturally a classic pop of red paired with an all black outfit is classy and elegant and has a very Dolce & Gabbana feel which I love.
Here are a few ways to wear Firey Red:
Paired with White:
Red and white looks chic and I love how the red just pops! White is the perfect neutral for a fun summer look. If you don’t want too much red close to your face, pair a white top with a red lip for a super trendy/sexy look.

Paired with Black Lace for a simple Dolce & Gabanna look:
Dolce Gabanna is known for gracing the runway with lots of black lace, bold prints and red lips and I absolutely love it! Here I paired my Black lace skirt with a fun t-shirt I got at Morgana Nightclub in Taormina, Sicily (how appropriate since Dolce & Gabbana is from Sicily) for a more casual feel and a fun pair of lemon print sandals that I DIY’d (details at www.thefashionistafrugalista.com)
