Today’s post is dedicated to color lovers with a wine-red inspired casual look.
Bill Blass once said: “When in doubt, wear red”.
Red is the color of love and passion. The color of energy, success and confidence.
Wanting to create a colorful, yet distinctive and elegant casual look, I chose a wine-red jacket, which is considered to be (due to the patch pockets) a sport jacket. A garment that is fabulously versatile as it can be elegant when worn with trousers, or casual when worn with jeans. The exact two-button single breasted notched lapel jacket in wool and linen fabric gave a interesting and colorful accent to my outfit.
Being in a quite playful mood I chose mix and match to spice up my outfit. Mixing prints and patterns is easy and safe when they share a single color. The white silk and linen handmade tie with the red dots harmonize with the single breasted stripped gillet, providing a smart result.
To tone down my outfit I chose neutral fishbone jacquard trousers.
The gorgeous bi-color brogues give the final, yet significant touch.
