How To Wear Red

The colour red is one of the boldest and most exciting shades one can wear, which explains its unwavering popularity. Powerful, punchy and impactful – wearing red shows you mean business.

From the catwalks to the streets, red is spreading like wildfire. But, like any trend, creating the right red look takes some knowledge and planning. So, before you go haphazardly throwing on every piece of ruby, pillar-box, and apple red clothing that you own, see how our stylists Charlotte and Deni styled red this spring.

Red Bottoms

Charlotte Wears: T Shirt | Trousers | Scarf | Trainers | Bag | Lipstick | Earrings

Not quite ready to go red all over? Not a problem! How about focusing on your legs instead? Opting for a pair of red trousers like Charlotte (or a red skirt) can still create statement style without feeling over the top. To keep the look balanced, just remember to make your legs the focus of your outfit. As such, completing your look with basic colours is an excellent option.

Styling red trousers with something simple like a white T-shirt, denim jacket, and trainers can look very chic.

Red To Toe

Although it may be a bold look, going red all over is very on-trend and incredibly stylish. If there was ever a time to rock a full red suit like Deni, it’s now. While there are numerous ways that you can wear the look, consider opting for a bottom and jacket in matching shades. Then, mix things up with a top that’s either lighter, darker or patterned.

Deni Wears: Jacket | Shorts | Earrings | Sandals | Bag | Camisole | Lip Colour

Deni has styled her red two piece with classic black for maximum impact. She can also ditch the tights in summer and style down the look with trainers. Adding silver accessories helps to break-up the bold red and adds a luxe feel to the outfit.

Extroverts and daring fashionistas will love wearing this season’s red trend from head to toe.

Go Floral

Red, black, and white are bold colors that create a striking contrast when paired together.

Deni styled the shorts with a printed blouse to showcase how to maximise the use of the two piece suit.

Red Lips

A simple red lip is also a great way to add a bold statement to your overall look. Deni and Charlotte have finished off their looks with red rouge to further make their items pop. Pick a bright and bold lip colour if you have a warm or dark skin tone. Choose a red with more pink tones if you have a lighter complexion. Pick an orangey-red if you have olive skin.
