The Best Red Pieces To Wear Right Now: Inspired by Jennifer Hudson at Self Magazine’s 2011 Women Doing Good Awards in New York City

At the 2011 Emmy Awards, we were all made aware of the fact that red really is the new must-wear color of the season. Celebrities are clearly looking to make bold statements for Fall and I think we should all follow in their footsteps. Though red is a difficult color to pull off, the beauty of it is that there are so many ways to wear it. From red lips to red pumps, there are a number of options for how you can rock the fiery hue.

At SELF Magazine’s 2011 Women Doing Good Awards in New York City, Jennifer Hudson opted for the shade, wearing a red mini dress and red lips. She looked absolutely flawless and I love that she went bold and bright.

Here are some great ways to wear red right now:

The easiest way to do any bright color is to use it on your nails. For the hottest red, try Dolce & Gabbana’s Intense Nail Lacquer in Fire ($20). Red pants are all the rage in the industry right now, so get on trend with AG Adriano Goldschmied’s The Legging Jeans in Leatherette Red ($198). Next month I will be the owner of a classic Gucci shoulder bag, but that naturally does not stop me from wanting other pieces from the brand. The Joy Boston Medium Bag ($770) is perfect for adding some color to your everyday ensembles. I love exotic footwear, whether faux or real. Alice + Olivia’s Paige Platform Booties in Red Faux Python ($465) are stunning.

I am in the market for a great bold jumpsuit to wear for nights out. Lucy in Disguise’s Roxy Jumpsuit ($305) is absolute perfection. I love the simplicity and elegance of Salvatore Ferragamo’s handbags. The Clara Hobo Bag ($850) is a great chic piece to have for the season. I truly do not believe that a woman can have too many blazers as they are really Spring and Fall staples. Bop Basics’ The Fiance Blazer ($198) will look great with everything from jeans to a pencil skirt for the office.
