Fifty Shades of Red


Sweater: Halogen (similar) | Skirt: Ann Taylor (old – similar) | Shoes: Cole Haan (old – similar)

With the holidays coming up, you can showcase your holiday spirits through your outfits without wearing the typical red and green.

I chose red as my festive color after being inspired by Stephanie of The Style Bungalow to wear red more often.

In this post, I’ll share with you the different ways I incorporated red into my outfits.  You’ll notice repeats of pieces, some having been featured in past posts. I’m a firm believer that you don’t have to spend tons and buy new pieces to come up with cute holiday looks.

Let’s all get in the habit of shopping our closets!


Sweater: Banana Republic | Pants: Banana Republic | Flats: Cole Haan (old – similar)

I didn’t shop very many Black Friday sales, but I just could not pass up Banana Republic’s! If you have a casual holiday party to attend, outfits like this will be a perfect conversation starter. I mean, who wouldn’t comment on this cute french bulldog?


Sweater: 100% cashmere Halogen (similar) | Pants: Banana Republic |Shoes: Cole Haan (old – similar)

I wore this outfit to the office this week and received so many compliments like “You look so festive today! Such a perfect color for the holidays!” I think red & camel is such a chic color combination!

BONUS – these pants have an elastic waist, which makes them perfect for those office holiday potlucks and parties!


Shirt dress: vintage Talbots (Poshmark find – similar midi version) |Belt: vintage Escada (Poshmark) |Shoes: Cole Haan (old – similar) | Blazer: Iro (TheRealReal)

This outfit is perfect for an evening date of drinks during the holiday season and is mostly pre-loved. I think a red shirt dress can be sexy without showing too much skin. I decided to define my wait by belting it with my vintage Escada belt.

If you live in a colder climate, you can wear tights with this outfit to stay warm. Pairing it with tights and shoes with smaller heels would also make it more office-friendly since these nude pumps elongate my legs.
