Red

Touches of red: streetfsn

As one of my all-time favourites and this season's favourite colour I just felt like it was necessary to have a post dedicated to red. This rich primary colour can portray many different things but it sure will always be a 'look at me', vibrant and feminine hue. Especially now in the end of the year, red is a great way to add that festive feel to any outfit. Monique Lhuillier, Valentino, Michael Kors and a number of other designers have incorporated the shade into their Fall 2012 ready-to-wear collections in a variety of ways. The runway pictures below demonstrate just how versatile yet always classic and feminine red pieces can be.
For the red 'Get the Look' I had to stop myself from choosing more than ten pieces, but what can I say, writing about this colour just made me realise how much I love it and how great it really is. Just like cobalt blue, red is a universally flattering colour (yay!), can it get any better than that?

As the designer Bill Blass once said - "When in doubt, wear red."

Get the look: 1. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | 6. | 7. | 8. | 9. | 10.

What do you think about these pieces? Are you a fan of the colour?
Do let me know.

PS. Yes, I am loving the latest Taylor Swift album 'RED', can't get enough of it!

  7. Red does look amazing on everyone. That being said, I've tended towards darker shades of red/burgundy recently. Haven't been in the mood for bright colors as the weather gets duller.
