What does leopard print, red and hats have in common? Women who wear them stand out.
Most women’s relationship with leopard isn’t wishy-washy. She thinks it looks sophisticated or tacky and cheap. Red is a powerful, intense color that can’t be ignored. Hat’s and headwear are in the same category because the women who wear them always stand out.
Tiny leopard edging makes a quieter statement than a full-on fuzzy leopard coat. We’re used to seeing leopard shoes but a leopard dress still says look at me. It took a while for leopard print to appeal to me. The older I got, and the more often I saw it, the more classic it felt until it easily slipped into my wardrobe.
Red is associated with passion, leadership, anger, danger, and love. A fire engine red handbag is less noticeable than a ruby red coat – and red lipstick is a quiet classic. I wore red in my youth but fazed it out as I got older because it washes out my complexion. The thing is – I really want to wear red so keep looking for that perfect shade.
Hats are attention grabbers and always get noticed. Wide-brimmed hats attract more attention than berets and headbands. I’ve loved and worn hats since my Mom plopped an Easter Bonnet on my 4-year-old head.
Do you dress to be seen? I’d love to know.
