The summer may be longer over but that doesn’t mean you won’t be expected to maintain the “heat” this fall—this season’s “haute” color ripped straight from the runway? Spicy red. From fiery hot to deep maroon, red is the color to rock this fall.
Ralph Lauren 2011
Emilio Pucci 2011
Since red is such a “look-at-me” color on its own already, its recommended to mix and match with some neutral colors such as cream, camel or other “earthy” tones; it also meshes well with your basic white, black, or navy. If you want to be really bold and fashion-forward, you can always rock the color-blocking trend as well and pair your red with another vibrant color.
That said, to get some essential (and reasonably priced) pieces for your fall wardrobe, check out these hand-selected garments below:
