How to wear red: 3 stylish pairings to try

Those red pieces shouldn’t be gathering dust

Published

on

It’s easy to think that red is best worn sparingly or just as an accent. It is after all, such a bold, eye-catching color. We normally wear a pair of red heels to add a pop of color to an all-black ensemble, or a cute red top to go with neutral colored bottoms. We rarely buy something red for every day use, whether that’s a purse or a phone, because it just won’t go well with most of our outfits.

This is exactly why we sometimes feel like we have nothing to wear — when we build a wardrobe without considering new color pairings and when we reserve certain colors for special occasions. Here are three new combinations to try with those red pieces that don’t see the light of day (or night) as often as they should:

Red + blush pink: spring to summer

Hybrid smartwatch, Fossil Q Jacqueline; blazer, Stradivarius; slip dress, Fleur du Mal; belt bag, Mango; heels, Mint & Rose.

This color combination will give you an instant flirty, feminine look especially when you do it with a silk slip dress and strappy sandals. Give it a little bit more structure by throwing on a red blazer, and stick to the same tonal colors when accessorizing to look more put together. You can dress it up with taller heels, or down with flats.

Red + tan: end of summer to fall

Smartphone, Honor View 20 Moschino Edition; crop top and pants, Aritzia; bag, J. Crew; mules, Madewell; coin necklace, myartisanstore on Etsy; hair clips, Machete.

Be a wee bit more unpredictable by pairing red with the brown pieces in your closet. A red crop top worn with tan high waist pants and mules is a good departure from the light, breezy looks you’re used to wearing during summer. When temperatures dip, add a coat in similar brown tones to stay warm. I used to be so averse to wearing this color combination but it’s now one of my favorites!

Red + red: winter to early spring

Sunglasses, Spectacles 2 Veronica by Snapchat; sweater, Everlane; shorts, Aritzia; boots, Mango; 3-in-1 laptop tote, Parfois; earrings, Machete.

Tonal dressing is my go-to when I’m in a hurry to get ready in the morning and it doesn’t just apply to neutrals. Try wearing red on red with your thigh-high boots especially during winter when everyone else is sporting the same black coat. If you’re feeling feisty, go all-red even down to your shoes and purse and you’ll be surprised how powerful it will make you feel. Otherwise, you’re welcome to tone it down with the black staples you already have.

From these three looks alone, you can create more: turn the slip dress into a skirt by wearing the red sweater over it, or pair the crop top with the shorts and nude heels when the weather is scorching and unforgiving. The possibilities are endless! As long as you see red to be the versatile color that it actually is, you’ll never run out of looks to try, and that red phone you carry every day will never clash with your look again.

Global Sources: Sustainable Cases

Published

At a show like Global Sources iPhone cases are a dime a dozen, but what caught our attention are companies with a commitment to sustainability.

Shenzhen Bobotel Technology

Take Shenzhen Bobotel Technology for example, who makes eco-friendly cases made of wheat straw — a biodegradable alternative to traditional plastic.

They can make cases for your iPhone, Samsung, or Huawei phones, in any color you desire. Each case starts at 90 cents at a minimum order of 50 units.

C&V Global

Guangzhou-based C&V Global offers similar products, too. The company has been certified by the Global Recycled Standard.

They have iPhone cases made from recycled plastic waste. In its purest form, it looks like a simple, clear jelly case but it can come in a variety of colors in both matte and glossy finishes.

They also make biodegradable cases made of wheat straw or bamboo fiber and thermoplastics. These cases can be engraved with your favorite pro-environment slogans as well.

The product decomposes naturally after two years if you decide to discard them. You can buy the cases through CTunes.
