(almost) red dresses #2

Red and teal/turquoise is one of my favorite color combos and I'm used to wear it frequently. I think that a red dress could be worn with many shades of blue, but turquoise works particularly well.
Adding a third color would create something more interesting, as tri-colored ensembles are considered more balanced. So I've worn some black with my first (almost) red dress, as it's a color which is dominant in its print, and worn some orange/tan to match second dress print. I like black because it always adds some graphic contrast, but I prefer something lighter and brighter, orange!
Time to join Visible Monday!

Rojo y turquesa es una de mis combinaciones de color favoritas y suelo llevarla a menudo. Creo que un vestido rojo puede combinarse con muchos tonos de azul, pero el turquesa resulta especialmente bien.
Añadiendo un tercer color se puede crear algo más interesante, ya que las combinaciones de tres colores se consideran más equilibradas. Así que con el primer vestido, he llevado también negro, que es el color que predomina en el estampado, y con el segundo, naranja y color cuero, que combinan con el motivo del vestido. Me gusta el negro, porque siempre añade un contraste gráfico, pero prefiero algo más luminoso y brillante, como el naranja!

  2. Ooh hoo! Some orange creeping in!

  3. Turquoise and red together are fantastic. I love how you've added the turquoise accessories with the red dress and cardigan. I think the tan works really well, too.

    I love the red/orange dress you made and the brilliant striped jacket together. I do like how you layer your clothes and your berets are always fabulous. The bird brooch is so sweet...

  4. I love how cosy and colorful your outfit is!

  5. I agree with you on red and turquoise working well together, and you were very clever to add black as a third colour. I used to wear lots of black in my twenties, but now only wear it when it has a colourful print! You're even carrying a coordinating umbrella ... I love the bird brooch you added to your fabulous striped jacket! xxx

  6. I love the red and turquoise together in your outfits (with your awesome turquoise Docs). Your outfits always brighten the greyest of days.

  7. Black is a great canvas for colorful outfits!! I love both. With black, it is very dramatic, and details really stand out. With orange, it is more playful and lighthearted! I don't think I ever wore red and turquoise together, but you do it irresistibly beautifully!

  8. This post just makes me happy.
    That's all really.
    Thank you Monica for your eye for colour and positive energy!

  9. I totally adore those turqoise boots and would say that they will enhance any outfit. Yes, I know that this post is about the red dresses, but the boots are so eyecatching I need to speak about them first, I'm sorry! As for the dresses, yes, they're both adorable, but I think the second one introducing the orange hue is my favourite. Your styling is so unique, always brave, bold and forevery joyful. Thank you x
