The September 2010 Lucky magazine issue has a section on red and black fashions. Here are some red and black pieces to take you into fall.
The Ezekial stars and stripes dress is a great layering piece. This cotton-modal dress is a bright red with horizontal stripes and snaps down the front. It is a relaxed fit and hits mid thigh. This would look nice with some black skinny jeans for fall. It comes in sizes x-small to large and costs $46.00 on swell.com.
The lace in love tee looks nice peeking out from under a blazer. Pair it with black pants and a cami for a night out on the town. Get it at Newport News on sale right now for just $19.00. It comes in black and sizes x-small to x-large.
Everyone needs a pea coat for fall. The Billabong Madison jacket is shorter with a double button breast and pintucked details. With two front pockets, this jacket comes in both red and black. It’s made of fleece and has satin lining. Purchase it for $69.50 at swell.com.
Embellished Black Tee
Black tees go with everything. The Nom de Plume YaYa Tago Tee is a little more special. The front is detailed with subtle rows of shimmering studs. A scoop neck finishes off this tough yet feminine shirt. It comes in sizes x-small to large and costs $38.00 at urbanoutfitters.com.
A staple in many wardrobes, a little black dress is great for parties, work or a night out. The Ponte tank dress has an exposed back zipper and an empire waist. This dress is good for everyone because it is flattering and comes in a wide variety of sizes, zero to twenty. It also comes in petite and tall sizes. Get it for $69.50 at gap.com.
A red bag adds a pop of color to any outfit. Try this Nine West bag from DSW for $39.95. The Richmond Satchel has a “pebbled” exterior that looks like leather. It has a fabric lining and front pocket. The dimensions are 13 by 6 by 9 inches.
Skinny Cargo Pants
Say goodbye to bulky cargo pants. Express has a skinny, black cargo pant that is quite slimming. This pant features a one-button closure with zip fly, microtwill fabric and, of course, cargo pockets on the sides. It costs $59.90 and come in sizes zero to twelve.
The Sergeant’s Short Jacket is made of wool and linen. It has side pockets and unfinished hems. Its shorter length looks great with longer shirts and jeans. The ruby color will really perk up a wardrobe. It costs $148.00 at freepeople.com.
Leggings go under dresses and tunics. They are so versatile, especially in black. The ruched crop daily legging from Victoria’s Secret is soft and comfortable. Get them for $19.50 or two for $30.00. Available sizes are x-small to x-large.
A pair of basic black flats goes well with pretty much anything. The dazzle flat comes in sizes five to eleven. It is embellished with grommets and shiny stones. Purchase these at payless.com for $22.99.
