Red Alert: Red is the Colour to Turn Heads

“Red is a colour that turns heads,” Executive Fashion Editor Serena Hood recently told Vogue. Here's how to rock red and turn those heads

3 Ways to Wear Red

Fashion’s great names, such as Issa and Tom Ford, coloured their AW14 collections rouge, sending leggy-model after leggy-model down their catwalks in striking scarlet ensembles. Powerful and seductive, red is often a tricky colour to integrate into your daily style, but there are a few simple ways to tame fashion’s latest trend. 

Accessorise

Wearing red accessories is a great way to add any colour trend into your wardrobe. Shoes, like these mariner flats from Carvela (£120 kurtgieger.com), or a red handbag, will add a touch of drama to your look.

Statement

There is a difference between statement and loud. Team your red item with neutral colours to ensure a sleek and simple look.
