I recently bought a red wool coat at Ambiance in Noe Valley because it was on sale for half the price and I just couldn't resist it. Unfortunately, I'm having a hard time finding the right clothes, shoes, accessories, etc. to go with it. The shade of red is somewhat bright (the closest that I could find online was this coat from The Sartorialist) and I'm not used to wearing this color. Any suggestions?A bright yellow-red works well with all sorts of neutrals: navy, black, gray, white and beige. Here's a classic outfit for work will really help set it off.By the way, I'm in my late 20's, petite, 5'1", brown hair, size 2-4, t-shirt-and-jeans type of girl but enjoys dressing up every now and then. Would love to hear about your ideas!
Trousers - In dark gray. Like a good DVF dress, a pair of Theory pants will be a lifelong companion.
Shirt - A classic white blouse is so fresh for spring.
Belt - Skinny in red lizard.
Shoes - Cecelia pumps in a dark cherry. I love mixing different tones of reds.
Bag - Something about this particular bag seems so nice.
Scarf - Feather weight in shades of gray.
Earrings - Ginko shaped drops.
Fresh and timeless!
