Red is a colour of confidence. It’s a shade that oozes luxury and is a great colour to experiment with. If you know how to wear red right, it will undoubtedly make you stand out.
To make sure you look fantastic in red, try styling it with neutral colours; or if you’re feeling more adventurous you can even try colour blocking with pink and burgundy shades. For formal dresses, racy red is the go-to colour for now, and is a great alternative to a LBD.
Our inspiration comes from The Duchess of Cambridge, who has long been a huge fan of the colour. Over the years, she’s sported a beautiful selection of red coats, jackets, suits and dresses – many from affordable retailers.
