Give a girl the perfect red lip & the perfect red pant, and she can change the world! At least that’s how I feel wearing this fabulous red lip and red pant combo. I haven’t always been a red lip girl or even a person who wears red. I usually tend to wear neutrals with pops of color, pink being my favorite of course. But there’s something about the color red that draws the eye and stands outs! I mean think about it, red by definition represents passion, anger, love and even power! This power red lip and pant combo have been perfect for work, events, and even for weekend wear! It’s what I like to call, Pretty Powerful.
This lipstick has quickly become my go-to for a power punch or just to perk up a look! It’s called Stunna Lip Paint and it’s from Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line! Honey, when I tell you this color is s0 stunning, the pictures don’t do it justice! I love love love this line, but Rihanna really made this color Universally flattering for everyone. This color works on a wide range of complexions, so try it! I’ve added the details so you can click and shop below. It’s available at Sephora exclusively, as well as the rest of her makeup line. I’m trying a few of her other products as well, and love them! Now honey, let me tell you about these pants!
They are effortless! They are so glam and yet so understated all at the same time! They are crepe, wide-leg, and have the perfect royal blue & white athletic striping down the side! These pants in the power red are perfect and so figure flattering! They fit into the athleisure trend, which is pairing athletic styled pants with less casual pieces. This combo is such an “of the moment,” look and I love it! Designers from Calvin Klein, Rag and Bone, Jacobs to even J.Crew. I purchased them when I was in Atlanta a few weekends ago from one of my favorite brands, ZARA. If you know me, which you do now, you know I… L…O…V…E ZARA! It’s originally a European brand based out of Spain but thankfully it made its way to the USA (eons ago), and I can’t get enough of it! The hallmark of the ZARA brand is cutting edge, but affordable style from workwear, weekend wear, and casual wear. The list goes on and ZARA is one of my go-to brands for all things fabulous and fresh!
How I styled the Look
Since the pants are so bold, I decided to pair it with a crisp white ruffle tee I purchased last year in Atlanta from Banana Republic. FYI, I do all my best shopping in Atlanta, it’s one of my favorite places. This ruffle tee is the perfect accent to the bold pant, plus its cotton- so it’s breathable. If you don’t have a ruffle-tee, honestly, a simple white v-neck tee or white blouse would work perfectly! I’d go with the later if you’re styling it for work. If you work in a creative environment, then pair this pant with a v-neck tee/ shell and a blazer; add a nude heel and you’re set. The nude heel is perfect for this bold look because you don’t want anything competing with this stand out pant. This pair is my fav and is called Daisy by Steve Madden! You have to try this heel ladies, it’s comfortable and sexy all at the same time.
The great thing about this red lip and red pant combo is that its effortless and can be worn at work, for an event, and over the weekend. Both are extremely versatile! For work I wore this exact look, I paired the pant with a black heel and shoe combo for an event, and threw on a white tee & jean jacket for the weekend! Either way with this red lip and red pant, you’ll end up feeling Pretty Powerful! Shop the look below & feel free to contact me if you have any style questions!
