How to Take Your Winter Reds into Spring

I am winter girl myself, happiest when covered in fabric and drinking all the warm milks. But here we are, the end of February, anticipating the dawn of spring. As we transition out of one season and into another, many of us find ourselves looking at our closets wondering how we are going to shapeshift our cold weather necessities into a fresh new season. And in my opinion, the one color that takes shape in every season is red. There is a red for every skin type and tone, and today I am sharing my favorite red pieces that could take me in and out of ever season.

Daphne Trench

WATCH. THE. FUCK. OUT. You will be the focal point everywhere you go in this J Crew trench, so wear with caution. This coat is less of a pop of color and more of a sucker punch of saturation. Regardless, I love transitioning this coat into spring by pairing it with a periwinkle sweater instead of a winter black turtleneck.

 

Grace Bag

Meet my graduation gift to myself. Never have I have I felt more at home with a purse. The vibrant yet versatile tone, the gold hardware, on top of the convertible design, I am not shocked by how many compliments I get on this bag. It’s vintage yet modern design speaks directly to my personal style, and I am excited to spend my first spring with it. I plan to freshen it up with a tricolor pastel silk scarf tied to the handles.

 

Red Lip Kit

Every man, woman, and child needs their power red lipstick, and this one says, “I own 51% of this company.” While I usually skip the flashy gloss in this set, I am ready to kick shit when I wear this liner and lip. To freshen it up for spring, use the liner to define the lip line and lightly shade in the inner corners and cupid’s bow. Top with a pink gloss and it’s Easter Sunday! Eat, drink, or chat, this lip duo from Huda Beauty is one for the legends, even if you are a beginner.

 

Big Apple Red Nails

My all-rounder, no-brainer, red nail for every holiday. Be it Christmas or Valentine’s Day. No particular spring updates for this one, just a beautiful bold color.
