When in doubt, wear red

This post is inspired by the words of late American Fashion Designer, Bill Blass who said:

“When in doubt, wear red.”

It’s the colour of love, passion, desire and in some cultures symbolises leadership and courage. If you’re having trouble selecting an outfit for the day or a particular event, why not opt for red? Whether you stand out from the crowd with an all red ensemble, or catch that special someone’s eye with a splash of red, this bold colour is sure to get you noticed.

Here are a few of my favourites. As always, I’ve tried to select quality items that won’t break the bank. Let me know what your top picks are in the comment box below.
