How to add a splash of red

For some, wearing a red dress is indeed a very bold statement. You can still attract
positive recognition to your business attire and presence by adding a splash of
colour instead.

Adding a pop of red, or any fiery colour is the way to raise the bar in communicating
your personal brand.  And of course it raises your presence above others dressed
from head to foot in dark business clothing.

Wearing a flash of colour falls under the ‘Capsule Wardrobe Essentials’ bracket.
Neutral colours from black to ivory all look dynamic when linked to a strong colour.

Monochrome doesn’t have to mean black & white. Try using other fearless
colours such as scarlet, cobalt blue or this season’s fuchsia and royal purple.
