Did you know that the color red actually makes the heart beat faster? It’s true! And, trends aside, red has always been one of my favorite colors.

My love affair with this bold hue goes back as far as I can remember and includes dozens of sweaters, skirts, dresses, and handbags — even a lipstick red London Fog trench coat and a dazzling fire engine red beaded evening gown.

Red, however, is not for the faint of heart. In fact, red practically shouts, “Look at me!” so choosing just the right piece is essential. I find that when wearing this exuberant color, a little goes a long way, and embellishments can be kept to a minimum.

Some of my inspiration pieces, new for 2012, are highlighted above. So tell me, will you wear red this season?
