{What to Wear Wednesday} Red, Black, & Grey

Good evening and welcome back for another {What to Wear Wednesday}.
This week we are looking at a Red, Black, & Grey colour combination. This combo is both elegant and sophisticated, but it can also be fun and modern simply by trying more modern silhouettes and accessories. Who doesn't love an excuse for a long shopping excursion with your besties? So, let's take a look at some great fashion inspirations for your special day.

Who doesn't love accessories? They are the perfect way to finish off your look, so be sure to consider hair, shoes, purses, jewelry, and make-up for both you and your girls. Also, don't be afraid to think outside of the box. Try fabric flowers or even feathers. And why not try an interesting pattern like stripes or polka dots that add a punch of fun to your accessories.

You really want your girls to pop, so I really recommend putting them in either black or grey, both of which are very flattering. This way, bouquets or corsages or props in red will really stand out in a really dramatic and aesthetically pleasing way. Of course, who can resist the little red dress?

At the top of this article there is a collage of photos and I just LOVE the gray suit shown, it has a dark gray and light gray lapel. Do you have any idea where the suit is from?

This suit is called the "Shades of Grey" design by David Souster and incorporates a 5 button angled cuff and a mix of different tailoring techniques. I found it on the Souster and Hicks website at
