Red is the season's hottest color trend and yet, even the trendiest of us find it hard to wear. Well, I've got three tips for wearing this color well:

  1. Break it up! It's true...too much of a good thing can be bad for you. Use an accessory like a belt to break up that red dress. It will reduce it's impact.


  2. Let it pop! Yes, accessorize with red and it can add a powerful pop of color to a basic outfit.


  3. Tone it down! Red comes in a variety of shades. You can choose a shade that works more appropriately with your skin tone, style and the other items in your wardrobe.
Now check out the video to see how I rock red.
