Red is of course, gorgeous head to toe, but what I love most about these looks is that many are layered separates which allow you to mix and match various shades of reds and plums and the colors they play well with like neutrals, teal, mauve, or black, while enjoying the extra warmth of layers!

My favorite look right now is layering berries and violets with each other for a super rich look. If that look is too strong for you you can break up the reds and plums with lighter tones such as pinks, rosey-tones, lilacs and mauves.

Another striking look I'm looking forward to trying is layering these rich berry shades with a similar-hued shoe and then balancing the look with a neutral piece like a cardigan or a faux fur vest like the first photo or a short trench similar to the mauve piece Coco Rocha is wearing in the second.

If you usually don't wear vibrant colors like red - layering is a great way to safely introduce color without stepping too far out your comfort zone with a head to toe red look.

Either way, you can't loose; red is scientifically proven to be the most head-turning color,
and you me- I never argue with science...
Have a wonderful wonderful holiday everyone!!
