Lady in Red: Casual Style in a Shade for Everyone

There are so many ways red works in our casual wardrobe this season – and we love them all. With the importance of plaid, red certainly plays a big role here. Cozy sweaters and the softest twill jeans in flattering deep burgundy, to be worn with neutrals like grey or black, are perfect picks, too. It really is very fresh, and sophisticated. No matter your hair color or skin tone, there is a red for you this season. (Tip: The beauty industry says that orange shades of red work with light skin tones, while reds with pink undertones work with medium skin tones. But we’ve seen all shades of red look good on all different tones. We say, just go with what you love.)
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed our picks for work or evening, check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

If you haven’t tried a plaid shirt from RAILS yet, you must. And we suggest starting with this one – or add this one to your collection. It’s made of a soft drapey rayon that is just amazing, especially with this shirt’s dolman sleeve design. It just lends to the easy fit. With plaid shirts being so prominent this season, the sophisticated color palette of the deep wine and dark blue take this look up a notch. It looks great with jeans or even a charcoal sweater skirt or pants.

NYDJ - Alina Colored Stretch Skinny Jeans
It is so hard to find a good modern fitting pair of jeans that is also stylish. NYDJ delivers time and time again, especially with their Alina skinnies. The waist sits just a little higher than most to help us avoid that dreaded muffin top. And the fabric has some great stretch to it. In fact, size down, since they will stretch. And most importantly, look at this amazing deep wine color. It’s color without attracting to much attention to your lower half. Punch it up with a red top or go with any neutral. Rag & Bone does the same color in a super soft, stretchy contemporary fit.

We are pretty obsessed with these washed red color jeans by Current/Elliott. (And so are a lot of people. If they're sold out of your size, try Nordstrom, too.) They have a vintage feel with distressed edging and a gold button closure. They are super soft – playing into that washed feeling – and have some nice stretch to them in a slim, contemporary fit. (The rise is 8.5” – not low, as it looks in the picture.) They look great with any neutral, especially camel to complete that retro feel. Grey looks amazing with it, too. If you are a dedicated Joe’s Jeans fans, they have done a very similar distressed deep red in their Sooo Soft denim (the name speaks for itself).

James Perse high quality tees are worth every penny. They are so soft and last for years. Their colors are always so well done, with a slightly washed finish, creating a perfectly relaxed look. This fortune red color, with its dolman sleeve and tunic styling has that ideal nonchalant weekend feeling. Wear the oversized neckline on or off the shoulder with any style jeans or knit maxi skirt.

Splendid - Pointelle Stripe Sleeve Henley Top
Splendid - a favorite for contemporary, super-soft knits – has updated a basic henley tee by knitting the sleeves in a mix of marled and pointelle sweater fabrics. And while there are a few color options, this pinky red is the perfect pop of color against the heathered grey body. Sometimes, you just need an easy tee to throw on with your favorite jeans – skinny, straight, boyfriend, it all works.

This easy, super soft skirt - also from Splendid – is actually coated to give it just a bit of sheen. It’s such a cool fabric. Not super shiny, and still casual and soft in stretchy French terry cotton. It looks great with a slouchy sweater or any button down shirt. Throw on a pair of tights and your favorite lace-up boots or little booties for the perfect finishing touch before you head out for brunch.

Inhabit does one thing…sweater knits. And they do them impeccably. This cardigan has their iconic inside-out seaming giving this sophisticated piece a bit of a casual edge. The wool/alpaca blend has a soft finish that gives it an almost broken-in look, like it’s been your favorite sweater for years. And we assure you, it will be. The quality is wonderful – it will last for years – and the modern fit looks great on everyone. The beautifully rich deep red looks smart with black or grey jeans or leggings, as well as your basic blues for a casual day of fun. You can even add some coated jeans to dress up and go grab that well deserved drink.

Pairing these 2 shades of red is so sophisticated. Yet Nic + Zoe has found a way to make it casual at the same time, by using them to color block this cotton tunic-style sweater. The easy fit looks great over jeans or ponte pants, and even has a short zip off the center of the front that can be worn open or closed for a little added style.

A cozy cableknit sweater is a must-have this season. And we couldn’t pass it up in this burnt orangey-red from Madewell. The side slits create a relaxed, slouchy fit that works with the broken-in feeling of the color perfectly. Just add a simple tee or tank underneath to peak out from the slits (any color will do – navy, grey, white, black, brown). Add your favorite boyfriend jeans and distressed lace-up boots.  While you’re at it, throw in a pair of fun socks.

Vince - Cashmere Boat-Neck Oversize Sweater
We don’t know if we love the perfect shade of orange-y tomato red the most, or the easy oversized silhouette, or the thick and soft cashmere fabric. We do know it all comes together in an amazing sweater, thanks to Vince. While it looks great for a casual day with grey jeans, it also looks chic with black or charcoal trousers for a day at the office or an evening out.

As athletic wear inspired our clothes, sneakers have become a completely acceptable part of our casual wear. Superga has been around since 1911 & have become a fashion staple in the last few years, so it’s no surprise that they came up with such a fabulous update to their core style. This boucle tweed is done in a black/white/fuschia-red/brown combination that looks just adorable with your favorite jeans and any solid sweater or tee. While they certainly work with any of the colors in the tweed, they look great with navy or grey, too.
