There is something about the color red that screams summer to me. I don’t know if it’s because most of our patriotic holidays fall in the hotter months or it just reminds me of sizzling temperatures. Red is such a power color. I find it so chic when a women has enough confidence to rock red. There are women who may be intimidated to wear such a saturated hue, so today I am bringing you an assortment of products to try. It may be easier to infiltrate red when you wear it on your lips or on your nails.
Red pumps are always a good idea for a night on the town. Pair them with an all black ensemble for a pop of color. Whether you’re headed to a dance club with friends or on a date night with your hubby, red shoes are the way to go.

To be honest I am an Essie Fiji girl at heart. My nails are shorter so a lighter color goes a long way. However, when fun holidays come about I tend to opt for something punchier! Pick out a poppy red tone like the one featured here for the Fourth of July weekend.
This pair of cat eye sunnies is hot, hot, hot! Won’t they pair perfectly with your beach ensemble? Between your wavy beach hair, bronzed skin and red sunglasses you’ll surely be red-y for summer.
You have your classic white jeans and light wash jeans for the summer months, but why not mix it up? Pick up an apple red pair of skinny jeans. Wear them with a navy, white or cream top and sandals. They’ll be perfect for a baseball game or barbecue.
A coin purse is a super easy way to infiltrate red, without actually having to wear it. Simply use it when you pop into the market or ice cream parlor. You’re sure to receive some compliments!
A red lip is very Marilyn Monroe. It’s sexy, yet classic and should be worn the right way. Gloss is sticky, so I suggest that you do not wear it with a white shirt or light top. Any extra gloss could end up staining your shirt. I love to wear a red lip with a black skater dress. Adorable!
