I’m pushing myself out of my comfort zone today; Stylist magazine recently ran a competition with Ford Fiesta to find a budding fashion stylist. The entry requirements were simple: put together an outfit – including something red – and upload it to Instagram with #FiestaStylista in the image caption. Well, as red is my favourite colour I had to give it a shot! I didn’t think I’d have a hope in hell but you gotta try, right?
I wanted a bold look for my Stylist Red Contest Outfit, so I paired this leather and suede top from Oak (which I bought recently in the Outnet sale) with bright red trousers. I have to admit, the top is not the easiest item of clothing to style; it’s a batwing style so can look quite bulky, particularly in leather.
I will probably get the most use out of it by wearing it as an alternative to a jacket with a vest top underneath beacause it’s quite warm. I’ve had these red trousers for a couple of years and they’ve become firm favourites. For good measure, I added a couple of red accents with my Angel Jackson bag and an enamel ring. The pop art-inspired bag incorporates clashing primary colours. A pair of black killer heels by Aperlai finished off my Stylist red contest outfit!
