Welcome to red and black week.
The colors of demons, blood+vampires, and tempresses.
|yeah that's right... little red riding hood. actually all of the fairy tales are pretty much just about sex.|
Red and black are a powerful color combination. Red = bold, black = contrast. I actually try to remind myself not to buy clothes in this color scheme since it might look a bit costume-y. For me, anyway. Seems most people can pull these colors off better than I can.
But I'd argue that that's kind of the magic behind these colors--that it IS a bit costume-y.
So, here are a few black+red (and sometimes white, since that's the theme-within-the-theme this year) costumes and self-aware costume-y looks for inspiration for this week. demons, vampires, circus, pin up, fairy tales... you know.
