Ensemble: Black, Red & Cream Accents

This ensemble was inspired by an outfit I wore to host a casual dinner in our home between Christmas and New Year. The silhouettes are simple but sufficiently interesting because the colour combination does the talking. I was comfortable and could attend to our guests without giving my outfit a second thought. 

Here are the exact items I wore. If we were leaving the house I would have added my Cream coat and oatmeal satchel.

Combining black with a shade of red is one of the most classic combinations of them all. Personally, I prefer to add a shade of white to the palette because it looks crisper, brighter and more modern and graphic to my eye. For Winter, I’ve added a rich cream for a more bold effect. The cream accent can be large or small. 

Red Bottoms: Choose any style of red bottoms. Trousers, skirts, jeans, casual pants, culottes, cropped pants, woolly shorts – take your pick. I prefer a warm orangey red, but feel free to choose any shade of red. From bright tomato to deep wine, it’s all good. 

Black Top: Choose a black top that works with the silhouette of the bottoms. Black knitwear is ideal for Winter. Wear the top tucked, untucked or semi-tucked. 

Cream Accents: Finish off the outfit by Adding Cream to the palette through footwear and accessories. Cream booties, pearls, belt and a cream handbag are effective options. Adding cream through a patterned scarf, gloves or bag is another way to go. Or add a solid cream jacket, coat, and hat to the mix.

Combining a black sweater dress with a red jacket or coat and Cream Accents is another option. Adding tall black boots and Wintery hosiery will keep you toasty warm in the frock combination.
