If you’re going to have a red sweater, why not a cozy cashmere cardigan? This is one of those garments that you could keep forever, and wear it mostly for Christmas and Valentine’s Day, but there are a lot of other times when it could be just the ticket. Some gloomy day in November, when the sun has never shone…
First up, scarlet and olive! This is a combination that might veer too far into the Christmas-y, if the green is too bright. (Which isn’t a problem, unless you don’t like the look.) However, this olive green mutes those holiday associations, and provides a good base for the brightness of the scarlet.
I’ve worn red with grey for years, and I’ve always like the way to quiet richness of the grey stands up to the brightness of the accent. This was one of those cases where I chose a neutral bag, rather than an accent. I’m still not able to put my finger on when or why I do that!
(note that the right shades of garnet will be perfect with this scarlet…)
I knew that this would be beautiful! The warmth of these 2 colors are perfect together.
Scarlet and navy is classic!
Brown is the hardest color for me – I don’t know if it’s because I don’t wear it, or because I wear it (in my hair and eyes) constantly! These colors feel cozy together…
I was pretty confident about this! Some of us still feel like we’re dressing from the ’80s when we wear red with black, but it behooves us to remember that a great many of the people around us don’t even remember the ’80s…
I’ve got a “bit of bright blue” in the works, and a “touch of turquoise,” but I’m stuck with what the last 2 days of the week will hold. Maybe a bright green, and some fuchsia? Opinions welcome….
