Red Alert! - our monthly style challenge for January.

Hello and welcome to this month's Style Not Age challenge! Jacqui has chosen Red Alert as this month's theme and it certainly was a fair challenge for me as reds are so few and far between in my wardrobe. Luckily I've been wearing this co-ord (old from Zara) that Sash passed on to me in December and it was perfect for the festive season, also great for the winter months generally as it's super cosy. But let's continue first with the ladies of the collective to see what they came up with...

Jacqui is looking fab in this feather topped jumpsuit (borrowed from her daughter) with her black oversized jacket, finished with blood red shoes and lipstick red handbag. Find out more on her blog Mummabstylish. 

Gail has brought out all of the reds from her closet to great effect. In particular, I love her second hand coat from Coast, tres chic! Read all the latest from her on Is This Mutton blog.

Emma's tomato red top and trousers are from River Island topped with a vest from Principles. Her funky bag steals the show however, don't you think? It's from Jayley. Catch up with all her latest on The Style Splash

HIlda's red trousers and yellow cardi tie in perfectly with her leopard print courts and what a statement this ensmeble makes - I love it! Follow Hilda on Over The Hilda blog.

My chunky knit two-piece has been aired quite a lot during December and January, mainly because it's so blooming comfortable! The pull on trousers have an elasticated waist which has been ideal for the post-Christmas tum and the long tunic top hides any such evidence too!

My massive Koi boots in cow print (from Vinted) are a brilliant pairing for the outfit as the whole thing is quite over-sized. The chunky heels and platform soles help to balance out the weightiness of the co-ord . 

Necklace, rings and sunglasses are all old, but work really well with the colourscheme of today's outfit. Again, red isn't one of my oft worn colours so it was a bit of a rummage that took place to find these. The sunglasses are my old favourites from Quay Australia.

Our Red Alert challenge has brought forth a lovely and diverse range of outfits to hopefully inspire and entertain you. Many thanks for dropping by and I look forward to chatting to you again soon!

  1. Love all these versions of reds! Your oversized red suit is...something. I'm not entirely sure it's working for me, though - it's just too much pattern and too much oversize, I think. However, that's just me! You love it and you rock it, Anna! <3

  2. Definitely rocking this Anna. I always love your bold choices. And those boots... rock on!

  3. I like the cheerfulness of the red outfits in this rather dreary season.
    Not too sure about the red check on you Anna; I sense it to be a bit drowning of you.

    Love the chunky boots though; those are super cool.

    Wishing you a good week. Xx

  4. Love the uplifting reds in this wintery season.

    Not too sure about your outfit Anna; I adore those funky boots, great print;
    but feel that the large check and oversize drowns you.

    1. Thanks for that Phyllis. I'll add that it probably looks better in the flesh... xxx

  5. Love the outfit, the co-ord and the boots. I also like Hilda's unexpected take on red. With camel and leopard. What a good combination.
    Would have had no problems creating a red outfit LOL.
