No, we’re not talking about “Fifty Shades of Grey” even though so many people love using the “Fifty Shades” line I couldn’t help myself either. Valentine’s Day may be next week but you all should know that this colour is also becoming popular for Spring 2013 so use the holiday for practice before getting into full swing with the rouge.
Red has become such a classic colour expressing so many things that define its impact on the fashion world from complexity, passion to sophistication. However, apart from the traditional lipstick reds that would first pop into our head, let’s not forget that there are tones galore to play with now!
February is still cold so why not warm up to darker wine and burgundy hues that still make a great statement.
The mini is back and popping all over the place where a bright poppy red will make sure to turn heads.
There are so many beautiful stone rings embracing browns and reds, together, complimenting their collaborations with gold.
Orange-red is a colour I am starting to obsess over more and more and can you blame a gal? Wearing a pair of blood orange heels accents any outfit especially when wearing neutral pieces. Everyone will be looking down at your legs.
Red and pink floral prints combine the right mix of strong and soft especially on silk materials and look fantastic with a pair of jeans or leggings.
Coral! Over the past year we have seen jeans in every colour of the rainbow but I must say that coral has always stuck with me. Just like the floral pattern above, coral is the right combination of red, pink and white.
