Red is quickly becoming a staple colour in a woman’s wardrobe, some might say it’s the new neutral (like black, camel and grey). Add accents of red for a more subtle approach or be audacious and wear red from head to toe.

As red is a sign of confidence it’s a great colour for the office, the weekend or a romantic evening.  If you love red but work in a conservative office and/or don’t want to draw too much attention to yourself, then wear this colour sparingly. A red blazer, coat, skirt, bag or shoes worn with neutral tones like camel, navy, denim and black always looks great.

Whilst I love a head to toe red look it might not be suitable for all occasions. However,  this shouldn’t stop you from wearing your favourite red pieces this season, check out some of the ways you can incorporate this fabulous colour into your life.

HEAD TO TOE

For the more audacious women there is only one way to wear red and that’s from head to toe. This look has dominated the runway for many seasons and it never gets old. For this type of look I recommend wearing pieces in different shades of red. I also recommend wearing different prints and/or fabrics to add texture to your look.
