WHAT TO WEAR ON CANADA DAY WHEN YOU DON’T NORMALLY WEAR RED

Halifax Hidden Gems

Canada Day is just around the corner, and I don’t know about you but I’m super EXCITED for fireworks!! EEP! They are my favorite.  However, dressing for Canada Day can definitely be a struggle especially when you don’t normally wear red. Because I know there’s a lot of you out there I decided to make a blog post about it!

WHAT TO WEAR ON CANADA DAY


If you want to pay homage to the Canadian flag rather than look like one, here are some simple tips to keep you looking cool and chic this Canada Day.

WEAR WHITE

White is so classic, and you will actually wear your these pieces over and over, so you’re not investing in something you’ll wear once.

I love these pieces paired together from the Le Chateau x Roxy Earle collab because it mimics a jumpsuit but for anyone who’s petite on top, and fuller on the bottom (or vise versa) a pretend jumpsuit is definitely the way to go (also makes using the washroom a little more user friendly).

With their super soft linen material (with generous stretch I might add) you can mix and match these comfortable pieces allllll summer long. Whether you pop on a skirt with that top, or opt for a crop top with those culottes the options are endless!

Have you guys seen the Roxy Earle Collection at Le Chateau?? Sizes range from 0-22, and every piece has been so carefully curated I’m OBSESSED.

And for those who do like to wear red you also need to see this red super figure flattering jumpsuit from her collection as well!!

Find The Perfect Red For Your Skin Tone

If you don’t like red chances are you’re probably wearing the wrong hue for your skin tone. Orange-y reds look great on folks with a warm skin tone yellow undertones, and a blue-red (typically a deeper red) looks best on those with a cool skin tone so pink under tones. Find the one that looks best on you and start small, building up more and more as you get more used to wearing it!

Opt For Red Accessories

Opting for red accessories is not only a cost effective way to create a chic Canada Day look, it’s also a fun way to get your feet wet in sporting this bold color!

I love red, but I understand not everyone does. Both the headband, and earrings are very affordable, but they are also SUPER on trend at the moment. What I love about these red accessories is that I could total wear them again in another capacity (either together or separate) which makes my frugal soul very happy. When I’m shopping I’m always thinking about how my clothing can do double duty, if I’m spending my money on something I want to actually be able to wear it again.

Keep Everything Neutral

If you don’t want to look like you’re hanging from the flag pole simply keep your ensemble super neutral and pop on a few red accessories (or don’t) it really doesn’t matter. You’ll notice both my bag and shoes almost disappear in my outfit, and that’s because I want the little bits of red to REALLY pop.

The red only around my face because that’s where I want the focus to be, but if you don’t you could also do the total reverse and do pops of red for your shoes, and bag and then keep everything else neutral.  Have fun with it!!

Wear Red Lipstick

While I do love both warm and cool reds (I tend to go back and forth), I typically opt for a blue red for lipstick (much like I did here). I prefer a blue red because it makes my teeth look SO white (you’ll notice this on yourself too trust me you’ll tell which ones don’t work on you pretty quick). However, when it comes to Canada Day you don’t need to sport red and white only I say opt for a red lip color and you’re good to go.

Canada Day should be fun, and expressive you don’t need to fit into any kind of stereotypical ensemble if you don’t want to! This look from Le Chateau is so chic I would wear it anytime!

My outfit might not scream Canada Day, but that’s a-okay with me! I can’t wait to sport this look over and over all summer long.
