Brights with Gray

Blue cardigan, Gap. Green blouse with ruffles, Forever 21. Tomato red patent belt, Xhilaration. Silver pants, The Limited. Black, patent pumps, Audrey Brooke. Plaid headband, Forever 21.

This is a popular belt. The Steve Madden version (with a square buckle) is $38. The version done by New York and Company is $28. Target’s version (Xhilaration brand name) is only $19. All the belts are the same shade of tomato-red, with patent at the front and elastic around the back. The only difference is the shape of the buckle (square or round-ish).

Today’s outfit is inspired by all the fearless, brights-mixing girls in Wardrobe Remix (link in right sidebar). I initially planned to pair the brights with black, but a spread in Glamour (or was it Marie Claire?) magazine coupled brights with gray and I liked the effect. It is, somehow, even more dramatic than black.
