The colour red sets hearts and souls on fire this season but for most of us the colour isn’t unfamiliar territory, if you’re anything like me you have sported a red lip or red nails with a LBD on countless nights out or even have the dash of colour splashed on the sole of your Christian Louboutins.
This Autumn, the colour has made it further than my sole and is the soul of my wardrobe, each week that passes I add more and more splashes of red to my colour palette. Deep, vibrant, muted, you name it.
Red is iconic and a colour full of such meaning, I mean The Split Endz and Taylor Swift sang about it so you know its a big deal.
When I think of red I think of love, romance and strength, what comes to your mind?
For many, it carries a meaning of love, passion, desire, longing, lust, sexuality, sensitivity, romance, joy, strength, leadership, courage, vigour, willpower, danger, action, vibrancy, radiance, or determination. Being one of the biggest colours this season, I am taking advantage of it.
If red is not something you would necessarily steer towards, you can absolutely still find ways of wearing it. For example, the bomber jacket and pants are styled as a set on The Iconic, however, that’s a little too much fire for my complexion and skin tone so I broke it up with denim and black to balance the vibrancy and trend driven feel of this look. Denim and black are timeless and are a perfect colour combination. Before you jump in the pool of red you can simply dip your toes in.
Your style speaks for you before words can, knowing red is a strong colour of many meanings how will you wear it?
