Outfit: Red Coat

I have to admit that wearing bright red intimidates me. I do like having a pop of red here and there but this is the first time I ventured out of my comfort zone to sport a whole lot of red and, you know what, I liked it! Leona Collection has some pretty amazing pieces (you'll be seeing a few of them around here in the next few weeks) but this coat was the first piece that caught my attention. I usually tend to gravitate more towards subdued tones of red - burgundy, for example - but there's something incredibly festive and sexy about the color red. Simply put, red makes a statement. My Gentry Coat has become an instant favorite because of how well it pairs with a simple LBD for the holidays. Or, if you want to keep it more casual, it would work great with a pair of skinny jeans and a simple tee. That's what's so great about red - it can dress up anything at all!
