Black & Red

Now that the holiday season is just a few days away and that the festivities spirit is felt everywhere, there is a simultaneously sophisticated and bold colour combo that comes to my mind as a beautiful way to celebrate those joyful times - black and red. Pairing the fierce red to the timless chic black adds a lot of drama to the emsemble but it is also very polished, what results in a formidable combination that will easily bring you from work to a night event. It is important to keep this combo updated though [through small details, key accessory pieces like handbags, shoes, for example],  so not to give it a 90's retro vibe, but a contemporary look instead. I've completely succumbed to this chic fashion mix. Have you?

Agora que a época natalícia está a poucos dias de distância e que o espírito das festividades é sentido por toda a parte, há uma combinação de cores simultaneamente sofisticada e ousada que me vem à mente como uma bela maneira de comemorar aqueles momentos de alegria - preto e vermelho. Juntar o impetuoso vermelho ao   intemporal chique preto acrescenta algum drama à roupa mas também é muito elegante, o que resulta numa combinação formidável que facilmente a ajudará a fazer a transição do trabalho para um evento à noite.No entanto, é importante manter esta combinação atualizada [através de pequenos detalhes, peças chave de acessórios, tais como carteiras, sapatos, por exemplo], de modo a não lhe dar a vibe retro dos anos 90, mas, antes, um look contemporâneo. Eu rendi-me completamente a este mix de moda chique. E você?
