Red is not typically a colour I gravitate to when it comes to stocking up my everyday wardrobe. To me, perhaps coming from a Chinese upbringing, I’ve always connected red with Chinese New Year or getting married. In our culture, red is a symbol of good luck and celebration, and though I don’t consider myself a ‘traditional’ Chinese girl, I’ve always reserved this very vibrant and happy colour only for special occasions (remember that red Chinese dress from my wedding?!).
When LE CHATEAU handpicked this red cashmere-like belted trench coat for me, I was a little intimidated by it. I would have normally picked a safer color, such as the black or camel version but super glad it encouraged me to push my own boundaries by sporting it with a fun twist on business casual.
