Swooning Over: Tomato Red

With Fall not-so-sneakily arriving, it's time for some Summer colors to get a little more serious. So say hello to Coral's replacement, Tomato Red:
Everyone's familiar with that Crayon Red color, with its cheeriness and in-your-face-ness. But add a tiny bit of yellow and you get Tomato Red, a cheerful color with a little bit more interest. It works just as hard as regular old Red, but the hint of yellow/orange makes it feel a bit more playful.

Though it's been around for a while appearing every now and then in mainstream fashion, lately it's been making quite the resurgence. A huge benefit is that it mixes easily into any wardrobe, adding a playful contrast to any neutral. Add accents of it here, layers of it there, and it adds a pop of color and some intrigue to what could otherwise be a pretty uneventful look.

Keep a lookout for Tomato Red this Fall, or you can start adding to your collection with the pieces featured above: 1. Canyon Messenger Bag, Madewell 2. Moroccan Market Scarf, Madewell 3. Flower in My Pocket Dress, Need Supply Co. 4. Lula Magazine S/S 10 5. J. Crew Editorial 6. Knotted Leather Ring, Urban Outfitters

I will be leaving you with many more findings as Explosive Kiwi goes into some kind of a hibernation...or rather, its cocoon phase. Have I piqued your interest?
