February is the month of Red in my calendar. With festivities such as Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year, Red seems to be the dominating color. In western culture, the color symbolizes love, passion, desire and it is in full bloom with the spirit of Valentine’s day. Ladies get red roses, red heart shaped boxes of candies and wear things of red to ignite the flame of love. Step into a lingerie store and you will find many red lacy negligees on display.
In Chinese culture, red, corresponding with the fire element, symbolizes good fortune and prosperity. Red is found everywhere during Chinese New Year, people hand out red envelopes and wearing head to toe red is a symbol of good luck and joy. In celebration, I will be doing a series outfits this month featuring key red articles of clothing. I usually avoid head to toe red and like to use only an outstanding piece and make it pop.
Today, I paired my favorite pair of red AG super skinny jeans with a white button down blouse and black faux leather moto jacket. Throw on some nude colored heels and purse to emphasize the pants. Currently, red jeans is in season and there are a lot of options to choose from between different brands, I will include some similar items in the details below.
