The Allure of Red

Sometimes red, in its most pure form, is the most alluring. Seen here, in both a coat and matching lipstick, is really compelling because it pairs against alabaster skin and soft blonde hair and pairs nicely against the other black details in the look. Because it's offset by a fur stole and some other "neutrals" the red isn't overpowering, but instead, empowering. I think it's strongest in winter but could be convinced into year-round wear.
