How to Style Red Series 1: Pairing it With the Unexpected

by Shalice Noel


When I think about what I’m most comfortable in, denim, a graphic tee, booties, and a cool jacket is always a go-to combo. It’s easy yet fashionable, which is how I like to think of my style. Part mom, part fashion girl.


As fall rolls around, I live in that combination. I’m very excited for all things velvet this season, and as blazers are more popular than ever, I’ve had fun mixing different versions into my outfits. When I first saw this chartreuse velvet jacket, I fell in love, even though the color might seem hard to style. I’ve personally always been attracted to unique statement pieces, and a color like this fits the bill. Paired down with ripped denim and a neutral graphic t-shirt, and the outfit instantly becomes California cool – a vibe I’m always into.


And because I can’t get enough of red at the moment, I mixed in two splashes to make the look feel even more like me. Fashion is supposed to be fun, and I’m all about an unexpected combination – whether colors, prints, whatever. My black booties didn’t do enough to compliment this jacket, but the red ones made the entire outfit feel more edgy and cool. A very effortless “I just threw this on but it works” kind of look, right?


I’ve already talked about adding pops of red into your wardrobe, but don’t be afraid to mix it with other hard-to-wear pieces. And do me a favor and see how red looks instead of reaching for neutral accessories on autopilot. Sometimes meshing the unexpected is the perfect combination!
