YELLOW FOR REDHEADS
I recently attended the Austin Fashion Awards and noticed there were a sea of blonde models that all looked alike! Then, a beautiful auburn haired, long legged model came down the runway and caught everyone’s attention. Later that night, she won the award for Best Model!
This story goes to show that redheads will always stand out in a crowd, so don’t let it make you want to hide, but shine!
How can you fashionably shine? Wear yellow!
Redheads should not be afraid to wear yellow! It can actually compliment red locks. I don’t recommend a yellow wardrobe (there’s not that many yellow options in the first place), but a few yellow pieces can go a long way. Just look at Amy Adams rocking this Max Mara Spring 2011 RTW Long Yellow dress with red shoes- sticking to the primary colors, no doubt!
This fall, yellow mustard is very popular and is one of the easiest yellow’s for gingers to wear because it has brown undertones, a “redhead friendly color”. Mix “redhead friendly” colors like hunter green and a jewel-toned purple with yellow to make it work. Buy a yellow mustard skirt or cardigan to use as a pop piece.
2. Break up yellow
You can choose to color block, and do a mix of all solids. Sticking with primary colors, blue, red, and easier colors like black and white can help you create this look. A yellow skirt with a blue top is great for a mod color, block look. Also, yellow looks great with jeans, so putting a yellow top with a denim skirt is easy and A-ok!
If you buy a yellow dress, don’t be afraid to add accessories to break up the outfit. I love to see a brown belt with a yellow dress or a scarf around the neck.
Redheads already have confidence, so lets say you have a long, formal yellow dress and are contemplating if you can pull it off, simply sweep up our hair and strut your stuff!
