Red, the colour of power, is also one of the most prominent colors this season in every collection.
The fiery shade dominated the autumn/winter 2017 shows. Designers were sending head-to-toe burgundy, wine and cerise looks down the runway. From tracksuits to coats, oversized knits and accessories, there’s an entry point for every lady in red this season. This has also been the case off the catwalk too. Rather than pairing a red blazer with your blue jeans, or choosing a red bag to complete your get-up, girls on the street have made it clear: It’s time to go all-in and colorblock from head-to-toe.
A colour that is typically sexualised, this time round it’s more refined, more grown-up and stands as a trend that feels entirely approachable for us mere mortals. Of course, the colour itself is nothing new in the realms of fashion – think Cindy Crawfords 1991 plunging Versace dress or Julia Robert’s number in Pretty Woman – but, with its popularity increasing by a staggering 500 per cent on platforms like Pinterest, this bold trend prompts a serious win-win.
If the thought of wearing red brings you out in a hot flush, then start out by incorporating accessories into your look or opting for a deeper shade that feels less intrusive. But, if you’re a fan then be brave and go for it from top to toe. Just remember to take your cue from the catwalk and embrace the different shades that red comes in to help break up and define your look.
