I am loving the combination of red and leather details in this outfit! Since we are nearing Christmas, it gives off a festive vibe, and can be worn for the office with black dress pants or tucked into a pencil skirt. Alternatively, it can be paired with a black party skirt for other holiday occasions. An easy trick for making your style more festive is to wear a bold coloured blouse (such as royal blue or red) combined with dressy pants or a dressy skirt, black heels, and some bling (ex: on a clutch or jewelry).

Instead of wearing traditional black pants, I opted for a pair with gold zippers and a leather waistband. This really makes them stand out from your typical black dress pants, and adds a moto-chic, edgy vibe to your overall outfit. These could also be worn with other colour blouses or knitwear during the Fall, or a plain white tee tucked in for the Spring.

This top is absolutely adorable! It can be so versatile, but my favourite combination is with white denim. Paired with nude sandals helps give the illusion of longer legs.

In this outfit, the focus is on the red blouse. This look is great the office, and can easily be worn for dinner also. For the office, you might have a larger tote, which can be traded for a clutch and shoulder bag for dinner.

This ensemble can be worn for a semi-formal occasion, or an event that requires dressier     attire. This cocktail dress ornamented with lace is flattering an any figure, and emanates elegance. Using nude a bag and shoes brings our attention to the dress.

Outfit 3

This outfit is a unique take of a typical Valentine’s day outfit. The red jumpsuit is a statement piece, bringing to surface an edgier glam look. Paired with a red lip, this radiates with empowerment.
