HOW TO STYLE RED CLOTHING ITEMS FOR WINTER?

A few posts ago (yes, bloggers calculate time in post activity), I wrote about red accessories for winter but I also wanted to write about red clothing items you can wear this time of year. In fact, I was planning to write a big post about wearing red in winter but I realized that I need to split it in two because it was too long. Apparently, I have a lot to say about why wearing red in winter is a good idea. So, today I'll basically post the part two of my red in winter fashion musings. Red is a bold, energetic and dramatic colour. If you ask me, wearing red is a great way to invoke good luck in our new year. You can pair red with neutral colours to tone it down or with vibrant ones to make your outfits even more noticeable. Lunar Year festivities are a perfect time to embrace the red clothing items. Moreover, Valentine's Day is not too far off either. If you're looking for some winter red outfit inspiration, you have come to the right place.
HOW TO WEAR RED IN WINTER? 
 My last post was all about red accessories and how you can wear them if you're not confident enough to rock the all red look or red clothing items. On the other hand, if you're feeling brave,  why not try wearing an all red look? You can try the tailored trend by wearing a red suit, or just a red blazer. A red coat is also a good idea! Seeing red worn in winter always makes me think of fairy tales. I'm a sucker for that Red Riding Hood look. A red dress is another great way to wear this trend. I have two vintage red dresses in my closet I swear by (you can see them above). Don't forget to pair your red dress with a red lipstick! Moreover, besides dresses, there are quite a few clothing items that can find a place in your wardrobe. I decided to put my red outfits into groups (outwear, tops, pants, skirts) to show you different to style them. Scroll down to see what red clothing items I rely on in winter.

1. RED SWEATERS, HOODIES AND TOPS
Can you even imagine your life without red tops or sweaters. I know I can't. Sweaters, hoodies and other cozy chic items are a must in winter. Why not make them red? Pick a red sweater, top or hoodie and add some drama to your outfits. It doesn't have to be the same old jeans and sweater combo either. You can layer your red tops and sweaters under dresses or wear them on top for additional warmth.




2. RED BLAZERS, JACKETS OR CARDIGANS
Next on my list are red blazers and cardigans. They are perfect for layering and that makes them ideal for creating fun winter outfits. If an all red blazer or cardigan seems too intensive, you can also pick an oversize blazer/cardi with red details. 
3. RED DRESSES &SKIRTS (PRINTED ONES COUNT AS WELL)
Honestly, red dresses are the first thing that comes to my mind when it comes to red winter outfits just because they are so easy to style. A nice red dress is the perfect way to add some femininity to your winter outfits. It is also a great option for date night--and V-day!



4. RED PANTS, LEGGINGS AND JUMPSUITS
If you don't like wearing skirts and dresses, red pants, leggings or jumpsuits are another option. I remember this pair of red flares I often wore in winter. While I don't have it anymore (I donated it), it proved quite easy to style. So, I might buy a pair of red jeans again!



5. RED OUTWEAR: RED COATS AND/OR RED PUFFER JACKETS
Finally, we have come to outwear. Winter is all about outwear. If you want to get noticed, opting for a red coat or a puffer jacket is a great idea.







Thank you for reading and commenting. Do you like to wear red clothing items in winter? Do you have any tips for styling them! Your feedback is always appreciated. Have a lovely day.

  1. You have so many great red pieces in your wardrobe! I really like that maxi skirt! I don't think I have much red - I have a lot of red accessories I like to use as pops of colour, but aside from red tees and some red jeans that's it - I could really add more options to my wardrobe!

    Hope that you are having a great week :)

    1. Red accessories are the best, but red items can be surprisingly versatile. Why, I have this blazer I wear all the time, it's one of my most worn pieces.

  12. Anche ame piace moltissimo indossare il rosso in Inverno, sia negli abiti che negli accesori: trovo sia la scelta perfetta per dare un tocco di colore e originalità ad ogni look!
    Oltretutto è un colore che sta bene a tutte (a te,poi, sta proprio benissimo!) quindi non è nemmeno così difficile da valutare!
    A dire il vero di solito prediligo indossarlo negli accessori, però come si fa a rinunciaread un bel maglione o ad un vestito rosso? danno tutto un'altro tono anche alla più girgia delle giornate!
    Mi piacciono molto tutti i tuoi look, ti stanno benissimo soprattutto l'abito drappeggiato ed il maxidress, e trovo molto utili e giusti i tuoi consigli! :)
    Baci!

  13. What a wonderful round-up of gorgeous red outfits, Ivana. I think red is the perfect colour for this time of year, providing a welcome pop of cheerfulness in these dreary winter months. I'm particularly in love with the black and red bias cut maxi dress and - my favourite - the second outfit after the maxi dress, that divine black and red outfit with the red wooly hat! I'm seriously swooning over that one! xxx

  19. Oh wow you really do have a lot of red in your wardrobe. I don't have that much red. My grandmother once told me I look good in this color. Maybe I should add more to my wardrobe. Love all you examples here and the snaps and seeing more of where you live.

  21. Hello
    I agree with you, red is a bold, dramatic and energetic color, I love to dress it up in dresses, let's say it's the color of passion, the passion with which you make your illustrations and your blog.
    I have no problem wearing red, I love it !!
    Your tips are a great help for anyone who is a little shy about using colors with so much energy.
    you look great in red!!

  25. You have some gorgeous red looks (swooon over the red vintage dresses!) and you look so utterly glam in them! YES, I agree that red is a good look for Winter! I do have a fair few red items I wear- dresses, trousers, skirts, tops, shoes- all feature in all seasons. It's such a cheerful colour for the gloom months!

  29. I would say, red is THE COLOUR for you! You look fabulous in in, Ivana! I also like the way you pair and mix your items, very colourful and beautiful. I love the checked jacket with the black skirt, so well combined! And I love your "folkloristic" elements in the way you dress, the beige skirt with flowers and red blouse... so nice!
    Have a good weekend!

  37. Red is really looks beautiful in winter, in my opinion winter is the best time to wear red, burgundy and shocking pink. I don't have much red pieces in my wardrobe, I think a cardigan, a pullover, a red coat, some pants that's all. How lovely collection of red pieces you have in your wardrobe and how you have used those in these outfits. This is really a great post. You reminded me to those red clothes that are in my wardrobe and waiting my attention. I'm planning to wear them soon.
    Have a happy Monday.

  38. Color can have an effect on our mood and wellbeing so it really makes sense to wear red during the winter since it is a high energy color. You have a really nice selection of red items in your wardrobe and it looks like you know how to make the most of them. I just got a really cute burgundy graphic Chinti & Parker cashmere sweater that I wore as my new clothing for Chinese New Year.

VISITING HVAR TOWN IN WINTER PART TWO

Hello dear readers and/or fellow bloggers. Today I'm back with the part two of my visit to Hvar city. Today I'll show you a bit more of this city. This time I'm taking you a bit further away, to fully explore the beautiful promenade this town has to offer. If you take a close look, you'll be able to spot all the historical attractions, such as the fortress of Hvar, the city cathedral and so on in the background. The walking areas on both sides of the city are simply stunning, with lots of tropic and Mediterranean greenery among which you will notice palm trees, giant agava plants and cacti.  How's life treating you? I've been feeling under the weather. I have a nasty throat infection (hard thing to recover from when you talk for a living) and I've been down with fever for the last few days but I haven't missed a single day at work because this is such a busy period for me and I don't see how I can take any days off. I'm drinking ginger tea by t…

READING UPDATE: R. ZELANZY, K. HOSSEINI AND ARTO PAASILINA

It has been a while since my last reading update, hasn't it? I love writing book reviews and you seem to like reading them so I'm back with a new reading update. Today I'll share book reviews for three very different novels with you. The first one is a science fiction novel written by two North American writers. This novel doesn't take itself too seriously and is a fun read. The second book recommendation is a bestseller: an emotional novel  by an Afghan-American writer and doctor.  The third novel I reviewed a dark comedy novel by a Finish author. I'm also going to show you a few ways to wear a cherry print dress in winter. Scroll down to see and read more!


IF AT FAUST YOU DON'T SUCCEED BY ROGER ZELANZY AND ROBERT SHECKLEY 4/5 If at Faust You Don't Succeed is a religious satire of sorts, so it might be offensive to some who are easily offended. That being said, I think it's a great novel. I do like how Roger can make fun of religious concepts but at the …

VISIT BAY PRAPATNA ON ISLAND HVAR WITH ME!

Exploring island Hvar is turning into a new hobby of mine. I love discovering new destinations on this island and sharing them with you. Today I'm taking you to bay Prapatna. Located about 10 kilometers from Jelsa, this beautiful bay has it all: a stunning beach, wonderful views, lots of greenery and crystal clear water. There are two main ways to get to this bay: one is by car (just take a turn from a main road) and the other is by boat. 
HR Istraživanje otoka Hvara se pretvara u novi hobby za mene. Volim otkrivati nove destinacije na ovom otoku i dijeliti ih sa vama. Danas vam vodim u uvalu Prapatnu. Ova prekrasna uvala smještena je oko deset kilometara od Jelse, a čini mi se da ima sve: predivnu plažu, divan pogled, puno zelenila i kristalno čisto more. Postoje dva glavna načina na koji možete doći do nje: jedan je autom (samo skrenite kada vidite znak na glavnoj cesti), a drugi je brodom.
