Monday Morning Inspiration/Do You Wear Red?

October 23, 2017   /   byRhonda Buss  / Categories :  Feeds
The week is beginning on a quiet note. There's a soft rain falling, gray skies, the feeling of a hush over the city...but then I am not commuting to a job. I'm sure there are so many who are stuck in traffic, arriving to their office drenched, and beginning the week on a rather sour note. So all the more I feel fortunate to begin the day with you, quietly and peacefully :)

When I opened my email this morning, there was a Bloglovin sponsored post about the 10 must need red sweaters for the fall/winter season. I didn't like any of them, but not the point. The article did peek my curiosity though about the color red. Do you like to wear the color red? For me, sometimes I do, and sometimes I don't. 

The color red attracts attention more than any other color. It signifies a pioneering spirit and leadership qualities, promoting ambition and determination. The color also represents a strong will and can give confidence to those who are shy. 

The negative aspects of the color are that it also represents, anger(seeing red), aggression, and danger.

In eastern cultures, red represents good luck and was traditionally worn at marriage ceremonies. While the Indian culture views red as the color of purity, it too is traditionally worn in wedding garments.

Since October is the month of the pant, I thought we could take a look at a few ways to wear red pants.

A great way to tone down the color is to pair it with neutrals.



Pair them with a neutral plaid and a dark layer.


Pair a great pair of red slacks with a denim shirt.


Red jeans always look great paired with denim and animal print.


Black and white is always cute with a pair of red pants. Take note of the black trim around the hem of Audrey Hepburn's pants.


I especially love red paired with turquoise. Tone it down with a navy jacket.


If you are feeling a little bolder, go for a lavender mix.


And then, if you feel the need to slay the world, go for it in red from top to bottom!


Don't be afraid to add a little color to your wardrobe and have some fun!

Once last little tidbit...
Red also enhances human metabolism. 
Nice to know :)

Have a great week!
