The new neutral | RedWednesday, October 22, 2014
I've never been into neutrals; bright colours and bold patterns dominate my wardrobe or did until I recently decided to buy everything black I could lay my hands on. I'm the first to admit that it's a headache trying to co-ordinate anything which doesn't bother me all that much in truth.
The revelation has been my bright red bag; I was worried before buying that it might be something that wouldn't get used all that often as it's such a strong colour, with red being one of my least worn colours. How wrong could I be?! Red is my new neutral; it goes with everything and feels right. It defies logic to me and yet every time my red bag proves me wrong and looks perfect. Who would have guessed? (Obviously not me).
The dress is one by Sugarhill Boutique from Amazon back in February, it's pretty and a shape I like but the navy colour doesn't do much for me. My faux leather jacket is a great fit and that's the flaw; if it was a size or two bigger I'd be able to wear it longer with jumpers underneath but you take what you can find from charity shops. Charity shop boots, belt and necklace and bag from Aluna J.
Do you use red as a neutral?
