Last week, we revealed our December Color of the Month – a not-so-surprising seasonal scarlet. As Victoria (our Style Editor) explains, scarlet is “bright, robust and warm… it’s a color that is ultra sophisticated.” Just as we love the life it brings to interiors, it adds an alluring element to fashion as well. Basically, it’s a classic color that belongs in every closet.

We created two very different outfits highlighting the vibrant hue. A casual cashmere sweater, boyfriend jeans, and a great hat make for an on-trend yet super laid-back look. Or, a pencil skirt, cozy sweater, and pumps with pops of scarlet throughout result in an office-appropriate approach. (PS – the gorgeous skirt has an amazing back story.

The outfits call for different occasions, but we’re curious – which one will you be recreating this December?
