Festive in Red

A Christmas outfit can be more than just a Christmas jumper. Ditch your jumper for a monochrome Channel-like red & black suit jacket. Monique from The Bargain District shows you how to wear it.

Ooooh La La…Tru’ La La!

Monique doesn’t wear a black dress. She’s bolder. Her red floaty silk dress looks wonderful as a skirt, but will double up as a dress, when it get’s stuffy indoors. Monique pairs this look with vintage faded red suede shoes and black tights. Again keeping the red and black monochrome going.

What I love about Monique’s look is the vintage romantic box bag. Birds and flowers in shaded red and green, with a bit of green that tops off the Christmas feel.

Sometimes, black accessories are allowed. Monique adds black gloves keeping her red and black monochrome going.


Now attention to details ladies & gents. I know your buttons are round. But don’t do boring. Do daring. Do square shaped earrings.

And last but not least, Monique featured a lovely flower ring that matches the red vintage faded shades of the bag and shoes.
