Have you ever applied a lip color and felt like it was just meant for you? Well, that happened to me when I put on this red lip. My Galentine gifted me this fabulous shade of red for Valentine’s Day and when it put it on the other day it got me thinking. Why do I only wear red during the holidays? In spring my wardrobe becomes very pastel with light shades of blue, blush and yellows. But this lip color inspired me to bring in a little more red. This week I will be sharing different ways that you can style red for spring, starting with red gingham.
Gingham is spring’s number one pattern. Maybe it comes from taking your checked blanket out to the park for an afternoon picnic, but gingham is always associated with spring. I typically gravitate towards blue when it comes to gingham. So when I saw this fun asymmetrical skirt I thought it was the perfect opportunity to add a little red. I love the deconstructed hem line and all of the different layers.
Since this is a very bold gingham I wanted to keep everything else pretty simple. I pulled out my white eyelet top from last year and used my luggage colored accessories to tie it all together. This smokey blue OTS top was a close second to the white shirt. I love the idea of pairing the red with a darker blue.
The skirt is from ASOS but Zara also has a very similar option that I love. It has buttons! If you are looking for a dress option this one is so cute. It would also make a great cover up! I have linked a few more of my favorite spring gingham pieces below. There is definitely no shortage of this print hitting stores right now.
Red can still be a year-round color if you find season appropriate styles. It’s such a fun color to wear because I always feel more powerful when I have it on. A red lip is sexy, sassy and always elevates my mood. Since I usually go for pinks or nudes, it’s always a dramatic change to add a pop of red. Not something I do everyday, but I will share a few more looks this week that were inspired by this bold lip. See you back here on Wednesday! xo Bryn

Note: I chose to wear this skirt backwards because I like the asymmetrical across the front and the blunt edge (usually the front) in the back. You can wear it either way!
