2011 was ALL ABOUT COLOR and I can tell you that 2012 isn’t going to be any different. And while I have always been a huge fan of color and seem to have a bright and cheery wardrobe no matter the season (yellow and pink are my favorite colors, after all), I know that color isn’t for everyone. So, whether you are a color person or not, the questions is: how do you decide which pieces you should purchase in bold, bright colors? And while I believe there are a lot of great options for giving your wardrobe a little flair, there is one thing at the top of my list that I think every gal should own. And that, my friends, is a red blazer.
Red is all over the place, from lips to pants to nails, and blazers are, well, classic. So really, how can you go wrong? I truly believe that there isn’t a woman out there who doesn’t have the ability to seamlessly pull off a red blazer-it might just take stepping out of your comfort zone a little bit to try.
In honor of Valentine’s day, I decided to pair mine back to a few of my other closet staples for a festive, yet comfy ensemble-perfect to celebrate one of my favorite days of the year!
