“RED ALERT” TIPS FOR THE ULTRA MODERN LADY

Red "knuckle" clutch box

Christmas is here and one bold colour that stands out unbelievably is RED! But caution must be taken into consideration when dressing in this colour. Recently, I spotted a fashion magazine showing a lady wearing lustrous red lips, red bodycon dress, holding red clutch and sporting red pumps. With due respect, I call this an “overkill”.

Tolu Onabanjo, a Lagos-based fashion stylist and lawyer provides some “Red Alert” tips for ladies this festive season.

Here are the tips:

A "weapon" every lady should arm herself with this Xmas!

-Avoid going all red this Season as this will give you a “Father Xmas” look. But let your red lips be intact.

-Pairing a red top with denim jeans (for a smart casual look) is ideal.

-Still on smart casual look, a lady should pair her red top + denims with lovely slippers or sandals to give that extra edge to it. The red top can be worn with brooches to the side or nice chucky neckpiece that brings out the entire outfit making her look laidback but sexy as well! Perfect for an afternoon brunch or lunch with friends.

-For a red boob tube corset gown, a lady should wear a gorgeous necklace alone to set off the red dress.

-Choice of accessories may include: gold neckpiece, a red box clutch, chandelier earrings, bracelet, red colour-blocked handbag, white pumps with red heart-shaped detail in front, etc.

Pink vintage chandelier earrings another ideal accessory for this Season

-Her coiffure should be in an updo style to add glam to the whole look if she’s going for a formal event. If it’s smart casual, she can let her hair/weave/braids down to give it that simple yet sexy demure look.

-It’s important to make red the “focal point”; you can achieve this by accessorizing rightly rather than indulging in an “overkill” of red.

So, ladies it’s Xmas time! Be “red alert” when shopping for anything red and its accessories!

 

Gold accessories for that red number could come handy!

 

Exotic brooches

 

 

Having a "Lady Dragon" pearl heels from Melissa/Vivienne Westwood isn't a bad idea too! Note the heart-shaped detail in front

 

Let red be the "focal point" in your dressing

 

COMPLIMENTS OF THE SEASON!
