When it comes to taking fashion risks, I tend to err on the side of caution (my wardrobe is largely comprised of navy, black, and gray). “Hang on to One Hue” in the Your Look special issue prompted me to consider other color options for the first time in a long time. Even though the thought of wearing an all-red outfit was intimidating (not to mention a big departure from my day-to-day style), once I gathered up the courage to try to pieces on, I felt instantly empowered when I looked in the mirror. I even went extra bold and finished with a matching red lip. Go big or go home, right?
