I know what you’re thinking.
Red? For Valentine’s Day? How groundbreaking. Almost as earth-shattering as florals for spring, operative word there being almost. Of course, for those who are familiar around these parts, know I love a good red moment — and this time of year, I embrace it. Let’s review the evidence.
Exhibit A: Remember this red dress that we snapped underground at the West 4th subway station? Yep, so do all my other fellow A train riders.
Exhibit B: Let’s keep things moving with the same red dress, different locale: the Brooklyn Bridge. Granted, we snapped these photos in the midst of summer (and managed to get our butts there at 5am, just in time for sunrise), and you know what? I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Exhibit C: And then, there was this Self Portrait dress that was pretty much made for every kind of twirling, spinning, frolicking photograph you can think of — the best though, being right here in Oia, Santorini last year.
Naturally, there’s a spectrum when it comes to pulling red off, and come Valentine’s Day, it’s important (and when I say important, I don’t really mean it’s IMPORTANT, it’s a color, people), to figure out where you stand when it comes to sporting it. Which is why, today, I’ve put together a few of my favorite ways to wear red, ranging from FULL ON CRIMSON (like today’s international spy look) to the PLAYFUL NOD (like this red boot number), so no matter what you’re planning for Valentine’s Day this year, you’ll have a few tricks up your proverbial sartorial sleeve.
Let’s kick it off, shall we?
