I must admit, I tend to shy away from wearing red. Even though I’m no stranger to attention, the color red always feel a bit too forced to me. That was until I met this gorgeous Christian Siriano peplum cold shoulder top in a ridiculous gorgeous shade of brick red. The second I slipped it on, I felt brazen and bold and unbelievably chic.
I paired it with a dressy pair of black pants by Cinq a Sept, and took the whole look for a twirl about town in Montreal. Years ago, I was sent to Montreal to cover their Fashion Week as an American fashion editor, and it felt surreal to be back in the city at the same time. I stepped out in this timeless look for the opening night of the Mode & Design Festival and felt, well, perfectly on point.
It’s amazing what a good top can do for you.
