WHAT RED IS ALL ABOUT

Article by Eleonora Mezzo

Let’s start off by saying that red is one of the best colours for summer. Why? First, I could just say “I don’t know, my wardrobe just happens to be full of red clothes”. This statement, although doubtlessly true, does not say it all. Red, accordingly to my Artbook, symbolizes strength, power, fire, and love; basically, all you are looking for in a dress – and in a man. But since this is not Tinder, we can save the chat about men for another time. Anyway, you now know why red clothes are always the ones to catch our attention in a store or on a person. Now that I have randomly – and unnecessarily – explained the meaning of the colour, I can show 6 different ways to wear it. I don’t really know how I got the idea of talking about this, but here you go. You’re welcome.

SWIMWEAR

duh.

It’s not a secret the best way to wear red in summer is with a red bikini or swimsuit. Plus, red is the best colour if you want to buy a bikini which is colourful but not too extravagant. Here I selected a few I liked the most from my favourite brands.

SUNNIES

my favourite

By now I guess you probably know I love sunglasses. I even made a post about the movies that made sunglasses iconic in collaboration with the beautiful brand Polette. If you would like to see some of my favourite sunnies, you can either check them out below or go to Polette.com.

DRESS

say yes to the dress

As you can see in literally every photo on the post, I love red dresses and the one in the photos is my absolute favourite. What’s so convenient about red dresses is that you can wear them both during the day and at night, depending on the occasion.

LIPSTICK

an easier option

I don’t usually talk about makeup on my blog simply because I don’t do makeup. I have tried for too many years – and I’m still trying – to get better at it but it just doesn’t really work for me. Anyway, one thing I know is that lipstick immediately elevates any outfit, making it perfect for summer. If you think lipstick might be the right way to wear red, you should definitely check out bareMinerals, one of the few brands of clean beauty, which does not use as many chemicals as most beauty brands.

BAG

to add a little bit of colour

Whether you are going to the beach or to a fancy restaurant, elevating a simple outfit with a red bag is an effortless but great option at the same time, especially if your look is overall quite basic.

SHOES

because they are never enough

It is obvious I won’t spend much time discussing why you should get more shoes since we all know they are always the right choice, especially if we are talking about a pair of red stilettos.
