I hate when I go out of town and get behind on my New York magazine reading–I miss so much good stuff! Like this adorable fashion spread featuring buttoned-up collars juxtaposed with seductive red lips. How can you not want to try these two looks together immediately after looking at this?
I love playing with contrasts, like wearing super-bright nail polish with an all black outfit or rocking a tight, classic bun with turquoise eyeliner. It keeps things interesting and shows the different layers of your personality. I don’t have a collared shirt quite as cool as the ones in the story, but I’m adding it to my Must-Buy list. As for the lipsticks, I’ve got that part covered. A fun orangey-shade like MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger would work with a whimsical printed collar shirt or I might go with something deeper, like Hourglass Cosmetics Femme Rouge in Icon, if the shirt had a more classic color scheme.
When is the last time you copied a look from a magazine? Think you’ll try this collar-lipstick combo? What shade of red would you use?
