As temperatures rose by the day, one thought persistently grew stronger within me. What's summer without a hot hue to battle it? And in came these words by Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone's executive director, "Fiery red is a mood elevator. It can boost confidence and make you feel more in control." More than the hanging thought that "Poppy Red" is among Pantone's colours of the year, it was this statement that convinced me to step aside from the shy summer pastels and include this sharp-edged hue in the upcoming TrimmingsAndLace Collection..
Red undoubtedly makes you feel much in control. It is a statement in itself. Combined with lace, it helps you exclude that over-the-edge power while keeping your femininity intact. Isn't that the sign of a true lady, ladies? Moreover, red in its varying degrees, is a colour that works against all skin tones. Plus, a long line of colour is not only stunning but visually slimming as well.
Long enough smitten by the Mad Men fervor, I decided to keep the cut of this dress 60s and very simple. Allowing the colour to do the talking, I accentuated with a delicate gold neck-piece. If you are someone who goes out and embraces colour in their full glory, you can contrast this dress with cobalt, orange or hot pink. For the demure, the classic blacks, beige and nudes never fail. Keep your make-up light as you don't want to take away attention from the red drama and you are set for some serious head-turning sessions!
