My closet is full of colorful pieces. Whatever the season, you can find soft pastels, vivid yellows and deep earth tones, but red pieces? Prepare for the wild goose hunt. I dodged red clothes like an ex you don’t have eye contact with on the train. Granted, I was intimidated and thought it wouldn’t improve my dark complexion.
The red fashion gods wanted to prove me wrong, so the universe conspired to have this ALC lyre skirt ($ 395) and Lennyn top ($ 195) on my radar. I was reluctant to try it at first, of course, but all my reservations flew out the window when I put it on.
I felt feminine and sexy. Together the pieces exude undeniable confidence, but they look just as casually elegant when worn alone. I love the bandeau-style top that is accentuated by the ruffle detail and comfortable straps. They’re designed to fit snugly so you don’t have to keep adjusting them. The skirt is dressed and extremely form-fitting and flows well when you walk or hey, dance. You may need to straighten the skirt fabric occasionally, but this won’t limit your movements.
Bring out your stylish mules to match and you are ready for your chic city weekend. Go ahead, grab your own set. I have a feeling it will be sold out soon.
