Red is the official colour of the season. It’s powerful and sexy. Feminine and seductive. And it makes you feel like the queen of the world.
Choose red from head to toe or just go red in shoes, jewellery, bags, or accessories. Find ways to welcome red into your wardrobe this summer.
The David Jones Fashion Show in August this year predicted the red trend:
“Bright red hues were a key trend for autumn and winter 2017 and the trend is not going anywhere for summer. This season the redder, the better! Worn head-to-toe, this makes for a powerful outfit that you will reach for again and again”, said DJ’s buying manager of womenswear, Teneille Ferguson for Harpers Bazaar.
We just love this bias rectangle slip dress with overlayed ruffle frill detail, made of 100% naturally organic silk.
The London Fashion week in September also announced the huge comeback of red. We’ve jumped on their Instagram profile to find so many ways to wear red. And you can’t go wrong with the red and white combination.
The red alert is on all around the fashion planet. Designers such as Givenchy and Max Mara chose the shades of burgundy and wine to showcase the latest creations and styles.
What is the meaning of red?
Red has always been a warm and positive colour. It is energising, and motivates us to be active and take action. It’s a colour of happiness and love and is associated with positive emotions. It’s the colour of sexuality, the colour of Valentine’s Day. Some might add that it can stimulate the appetite. In Indian culture is often used as the colour of the wedding gown.
Depending on your skin tone, you may feel your best in maroon, burgundy, crimson or scarlet tone.
Now it’s shopping time!
