Like I said in a previous post, I vetoed this colour a long time ago…but lately I’ve been wearing my red-hued jacket with EVERYTHING. It feels like the black go-to I never had. And it seems I’m not the only one stepping out in it as I’ve street scouted a lot of people wearing it in all different shades this season – anywhere from burnt red and burgundy to cherry and crimson. The hue is making a fashion impact among the street style set (like my girl, Laura Mitchell pictured below).
Here are 5 of my favourite ways to rock the hue:
Statement piece: By keeping your outfit simple (think white tee and denim), you can incorporate a pop of red through a jacket or ankle boot. Feeling adventurous? Try a red dress.
Subtle pop: Incorporate a subtle pop of red in the trim of a sweater…or a print (think plaid) for a statement that doesn’t speak too loudly.
With khaki: The two hues look great together. The red adds visual interest while the khaki grounds the outfit.
With pink: I’ve forever been obsessed with this bold combo. In fact, when I hated red, this was the only way I liked it. It just looks so good. Case in point on blogger, Happily Grey.
Through your accessory game: Not ready to commit to the trend? Add a red accessory to incorporate the colour without having to fully commit. You can make up your mind later 🙂
