An Essential Holiday Hue

The holidays are approaching so fast that I’m starting to look for some pieces in bright red, my favorite color for this time of the year. I usually wear only tops and sweaters in this color; lately, I’ve been searchingย for a red dress but have not been lucky enough to find one that measures up. I’m also attracted to red handbags that can become the eye-catching piece of a look. Today’s board features an outfit comprised of some pieces on my wish list, among them two red items that caught my attention.

Zara Cape Coat + J.Crew Cambridge Cable Turtleneck Sweater + Frame Denim Le Skinny de Jeanne Crop Mid-Rise Jeans + J.Crew Classic Felt Hat + Kate Spade New York Cedar Street Mini Maise Crossbody Bag + Michael Kors Lottie Spazzolato Leather Oxfords + Burberry Heritage Giant Check Fringed Cashmere Muffler + H&M Gloves + Tom Ford Oversized Sunglasses

Jacket / Sweater / Jeansย / Hat / Handbag / Shoes / Scarf / Gloves / Sunglasses

Thank you very much for stopping by!

    the mix of red, gray, black and white is so beautiful and I like it very much! You chose some kind of shoes I was looking for a long time and unfortunately I did not hit pay dirt. I love that pair of shoes very much! I agree with you, that a red bag can become a eye-catching piece of a look. I also like red wallets. Your collage is absolutely according to my taste, I love all those pieces and my favorite one is the pair of shoes ๐Ÿ™‚
    Have a beautiful evening, Danielle!

    Love that jacket and the red handbag! I can’t believe the holidays are upon us already. Guess I should start shopping for some outfits for all of those holiday events.

    The bright red cable knit jumper is really, really special – it looks so luxurious! I love your unusual suggestion of styling the look with pointed flats; the entire look is stylish and well thought-out from head to toe ๐Ÿ™‚
