As a redhead I’ve been conditioned to avoid bright warm colors like red, orange and pink but when I saw this skirt at Downtown Threads a few weeks ago I couldn’t resist. I love the deep almost cranberry red shade and I am having so much fun mixing this new color in with the rest of my wardrobe.
There is something so classic about Brenton stripes. They’re neat and polished but without being stuffy. I was a little worried that the navy and white stripes would look a little too patriotic when paired with my cranberry skirt but I think the two strike a perfect balance.
Since I was wearing this outfit to the office (which is freezing!) I opted for my black linen blazer, it gave my look a more polished feel and kept me warm all day. My black and gold sandals were the perfect way to tie the whole look together bringing in the black from the blazer but also highlighting my sweet vintage Joe Camel watch and fierce leopard ring. I’m always amazed when looks just seem to pull themselves together, it makes mornings so much easier!
What’s your favorite way to wear Brenton stripes this summer? What colors do tend to you stay away from?
