Fashion illustrations of the day- a touch of red goes a long way vs. all red styling (How to wear red accents vs. how to wear an all red outfit?)
How to style red accents?
If you want to play it safe, you can always pair red accents with a monochrome or black and white combinations. If you feel a bit more bold, why not wear them with something a bit more colourful? Today I have prepared two fashion illustrations for you (both drawn with coloured pencils in case anyone is wondering about the medium) that are all about red accessories. In addition, I prepared two illustrations that are all about putting together an all red outfit, but first things first.
If you ask me, a touch of red always goes a long way. As I said, today I'm sharing two fashion illustrations that are dominated by red details. I would definitely say that the red heels are the eye-catcher in this first (illustrated) outfit I'm sharing. What is more gorgeous than seeing heels paired with a coat in winter time? However, I do love to see coats paired with flats as well. Maybe I just love coats. On second thought, maybe I just love fashion. Yup, that could be it. I love clothes & I love fashion.
In the second outfit, the red accent happens to be a lovely bag. I don't have a lot of bags (I'm not a bag lady) in my closet, but among those that I own, there are a few of red ones. Do you like red bags? Do you like red accents? If yes, how do you like to wear them? Red accessories are always fun but when it comes to red accents, somehow something unrelated to clothes (shocking I know) comes to my mind and that special something is a classical red lip. Probably the easiest way to dress up any outfit is to put on a red lip. I don't know what it is about this particular colour, but red lipstick always seem to add a bit of confidence to any outfit. Is the red lip really the easiest and the most affordable (as long as you're staying away from designer make up) way to look instantly fashionable? I can't say for sure, but it could be the case. What do you think? Do you wear a red lip?
All red outfits- How to style an all red outfit?
I made two fashion illustrations as an answer to the question of how to style an all red outfit. In the first illustration I drew a red jumpsuit. I drew these two fashion illustrations from my head, but you can probably find similar (but not exactly the same) outfits in a store. Alternatively, you can also print out these illustrations, take them to your seamstress and say- this is what I want. My husband advised me against sharing my fashion illustrations online. He says everyone can use and copy my designs that way. Well, that's certainly true but I'm not sure I would terribly mind that (yet). Besides, I still have a few fashion illustration I want to share before I take a moment to think about that.
What would you rather wear: a red dress or a red jumpsuit? I think both of these can be just as fun. Red dresses come up in a variety of styles and so do the red jumpsuits. Here I illustrated a flared jumpsuit because I'm a huge fan of those, but red pencil style jumpsuit would be just as stunning. Similarly, I illustrated a cocktail red dress, but a long red dress is a wonderful choice as well. Do you have any ideas about sporting an all red outfit? Do you have a favourite shade of red? The medium for these two illustrations is also coloured pencils on paper. All four illustrations are done in a similar style, but for the first one (to be more precise for the coat on the first illustration) I used a multi-coloured pencil that was given to me and man are those things hard to use or what! I'm not sure I'll try drawing with that one any time soon. These illustrations aren't terribly detailed or polished, but as far as fashion sketches/drawings are considered I think they do just fine. In addition, I played with rose pedals a bit, but no need to mention that, as you can see all of that yourself. That would be all for today. Thank you for reading.
