...forget about holiday associations(even Valentine's Day for that matter/hope everyone had a great one though). Red is entirely it's own thing. Ask a matador. I'd look twice if I saw red in the summer time, and I'm sure you would too. There's always one woman in a red dress, isn't there. It's a color so powerful; I'm seriously considering classifying it rather as a shape. And that's simply because everything around it always seems to bounce off of it(must be physical)... So below we have a nice little sample of ways you can 'get-red' in your wardrobe and at home. And if you're anything like me, everything red in your current environment will suddenly pop out to your eyes a little more after seeing this post(it's startling). Enjoy!

I'm starting with this Valentino bag because it's shiny on top of being red. If you're looking for attention, this is surely the route to take. Very gorgeous(and red).

A short red dress can go a long way, but this one is somewhat softer in texture than what you usually see(less hard lined). It's a lovely mixture of bold and soft I think.

A couple of smaller things now, if you're not inclined to go all in just yet. Spikes and red seem naturally in love, need I say more.

Another great red shoe, this time from Zanotti.

Or you could just sport a skinny red belt like this one from BEBE. It's amazing how powerful just one thin line of red can be.

More subdued, but still powerful, this red scarf from Alexander McQueen(for the darker/mysterious types).

Summer is around the corner(in New York at least) and I love the lines of the old-fashioned inspired bathing suits. So elegant. This one in red by Lanvin is shocking and refined.

Maybe it would be too much to put with the above, but who cares. Red sunglasses from Urban Outfitters. I'm slightly obsessed with the old librarian shapes lately.

And when you get home, hard to see how you could be late for something with this red rimmed clock.

I love(LOVE) red in big patched geometrical shapes; particularly on the floor. This would work well with any of your existing pieces.
