Red & Black Outfit IS Too Much?

 Red and Black Outfit

Red and Black as a color combination often represents the intense sexy devil.

So wearing red and black in broad daylight is too much?

First of all, you are never too much!

Second, a red and black outfit can still look effortless and chic with just a little bit sexy.  

"Style is wearing an evening dress to McDonald's, wearing heels to play football. It is personality, confidence and seduction." —John Galliano

 

How I Wear Red And Black

My red and black outfit starts with this beautiful red off the shoulder top I got from Zara last summer. I loved it so much, so I start wearing it the first chance I got. Some people say the off the shoulder trend is fading, I do hope it can stay strong for another season because I really enjoy wearing off the shoulder in the summertime. Not only in this red and black outfit, I also wore an off the shoulder top in my last post about Spring in New York. Unfortunately, My top is no longer available in Zara, here are a few similar red tops and a cute dress I found.

In my hair, I’m wearing a silk bandana from Madewell. It also creates a red and black contrast in my hair. I think the french country vibes of a print bandana dials down the sexiness of the red off the shoulder top. Jewelry wise I like to keep it simple with a red and black outfit by wearing only a pair of dainty hoops. A pair of cat eye sunglasses just goes with anything.

Mom jeans are the most effortless piece, so I chose them in this red and black outfit to make it more casual and light. It is always fun to wear a belt bag - my favorite spring trend right now. My mini Gucci bag can be worn both cross body and around the waist. I find it's cuter as a belt bag and less look-at-my-Gucci, maybe because I always put my hands on it when wearing it crossbody. On my feet, I'm wearing my new black slingback from Zara. The kitten heel slingbacks are very on trend right now. I wear them with this red and black outfit because I love the contrast between mom jeans and slingback heels.

There you have it! My red and black outfit for casual daytime. You can always dress it up by adding some bold earrings (how to wear door knocker earrings) and change the bottom into a pair of black leather pants for a full-on sexy night out look. Don't be afraid to try it out!
