I could not survive a winter without my trusty fleece red coat. I’m not really one who likes to blend in with the crowd, so this bright red coat really helps me stand out. When I wrote this article about getting people to notice you, I  had to include the color red. Wearing anything in this hue, whether is something as large as this coat, or more demure, like a lipstick, will make people look at you instantly. When I was researching color psychology I found that that red is one of the color that catches our eye instantly (which is why traffic signs are red) and also makes our heart beat speed up.

A red coat will let people know you’re confident and full of energy. However, because red is such a powerful color, some people might find too much of it too intimidating; which is why I kept the rest of the outfit simple, in a darker color palette. You had seen me rock this red coat before, paired with neutrals. After I put on this outfit I thought it felt a little bit like a school uniform (the sweater, A-line skirt, etc.), so I added these sexy suspender tights to take it from high school hallway to runway.
