Styling Tip: Add a Pop of Red

One-Minute Makeover Tip: Add a Pop of Red

To help put an end to our wardrobe malfunctions and forever eliminate the phrase "I have nothing to wear" from our fashion vocabularies, we've culled our style-savvy community and editors' sartorial wisdom for the quick-hit tips we need to whip our outfits into shape. Today's lesson is all about one of our favorite statement colors: add a pop of red.

  • Red is a powerful statement color that's also having a bit of a moment right now. Denim, in particular, has never looked so fresh or on-trend as it does now in candy-apple red hues.
  • Red isn't occasion-specific; it functions both as a great everyday accent to brighten up your working wardrobe or on a little dress for a big night out.
  • This kind of outfit accent doesn't come with a hefty price tag or special stipulations. All you need to pull it off is the right tone for your complexion; then choose whatever form you're drawn to, whether it's a Fall sweater, a silky red blouse, or a great pair of red pumps. There are no rules; just experiment with the color as you see fit and in the doses you like.
