We’ve been keeping an eye out, and we can confidently tell you that red is the most important colour for fashion this fall. The runway was brushed in shades of red and we are all for it! Bold and dangerous, it’s historically linked to caution and sin, thus, not a frequent presence on the fashion scene. But with designer collections like Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli backing it up, the colour is being revived. In different shades of red, the range was demure and an honest rendition of the colour.
In all honesty, we wish more women would dare to wear red on a day-to-day basis. Fortunately, there are many ways to incorporate red into your look and we have curated a list to get you started!
Wish to go sombre with your red escapades? Opt for delicate red prints on a bold base - they can be paired with basics if you want to avoid looking OTT. Invest in pencil skirts and printed shifts to add the elusive red in your wardrobe!

Taking cue from one of history’s sexiest women, Marilyn Monroe, we have picked a retro one-piece swimsuit as a hot fav! Sun bathe in these fire kissed swimsuits on your next vacay! Don't forget to throw in a beach hat to the mix!
We are seeing the ruffle trend everywhere. That mixed with the gorgeous red hue, we have the perfect combination of chic. Pair your ruffled red blouses with darker bottoms like pencil skirts or skinny trousers.
Straight-leg trousers are a great alternative to your basic skinny bottoms for workwear. They complement pastel tops well and are super comfy to wear all day. Tie up a pair of smart oxfords to complete the look!
