New Year’s Resolution: Wear More Red

Happy Holidays everyone! Or as it’s said in London, Happy Christmas!

I imagine you’re all with your friends and families, enjoying loved ones, resting and eating grotesque amounts of Christmas pudding, trifle, froie gras…whatever your food-related sin is.

For me, times of rest mean brewing thoughts, times of reflection, times of growth, inspiration, relaxation, all things spiritual that keep me whole and centred.

But I thought this would be a good opportunity to incorporate the festive season with the pre-fall season, and my personal resolution for 2011: wear more red.

Red is the colour of passion, aggression, anger, lust, love and richness. All things that somehow make up my life and yours (perhaps in less intense degrees). Red is the colour of stop lights, the colour of warning, the colour of caution, the colour of power, and all things intense. It commands attention, signifies vibrancy, it’s shocking and bold, it’s concentrated pigment, it’s primary. It represents fire and blood, essential components of survival.

All these attributes mean that red commands attention, asserts power and lifts spirits. All the attributes I wish to incorporate into my outlook for 2011. What better way to ensure that I keep this mindset than to dress accordingly?

Looking for inspiration wasn’t too difficult considering the pre-fall 2011 collections were like a bursting aorta, rich haemoglobin colours, so vibrant and intense, but fresh all the same.

So if you’re looking for further inspiration I’ve compiled a 30 ideas to carry forth this resolution.
