As far as wearable colours go, red is definitely on the “out there” end of the spectrum, but don’t let its flamboyance daunt you. This unapologetic hue is synonymous with passion, power and positivity, and donning it has been proven to boost your confidence, so channel your inner girl power and reach for red. If neutral tones are your go-to, you can start small and add a subtle pop of colour with bright and bold accoutrements, then work your way up by layering a crimson piece or print with an otherwise monochrome outfit (white perhaps?). Or crank the wattage up to the maximum and go head-to-toe rouge, if you dare. Either way, you’ll be flashing both your polish and patriotism at once.
There are a lot of pseudo rules associated with wearing white, but you’d do well to throw that book out of the window. Fashion is all about self-expression, so seriously, you do you. But should you be in a quandary about how to master this crisp and cool colour, a safe bet would be to pair white with a contrasting palette or pattern — pastels, neutrals, brights, metallics, florals, animal prints… You name it, white probably looks good with it. And if you plan on going the white on white route, but don’t wish to resemble a bride, keep things interesting by combining different silhouettes, textures and shades, then top it all off with a statement accessory.
