How to Rock This Season's Hottest Color Trend (hint: it's a bold one!)

Fall is here and red is the official color of Fall! As always, there are lots of new fall trends. While we love most of them, the one we’re most excited about is the color explosion of red! Straight from the runways to the streets, we’re seeing it spread like wildfire (no pun intended). From scarlet and candy apple to crimson and maroon, it’s definitely the hue to be seen in this season. Yes, red, in all its unapologetically bright, bold glory. Of course the color is nothing new within the realms of the fashion world, but this year we’re seeing it unlike we ever have before. We’re seeing more of it, and we’re seeing it go monochromatic. Daring? Indeed. Flattering? Surprisingly much so.

While head to toe red is definitely in, you can certainly rock this new trend through more simple and subtle ways. So don’t shy away from it just because you prefer a more minimal palette. While there are certainly more approachable colors (all black, all day), red is quite versatile and can be tailored to suit anyone. And because of its hue, red accessories can make a beautiful, striking statement without appearing too intense. Plus, they’re wearable all year round!  Whether it’s a pair of red earrings, a red purse or red pumps, these will be staple items you’ll be glad to have within your closet.

Did we mention that red is the perfect mood-lifting color and is often associated with power and confidence? Feminine and strong, you cannot fail to notice a woman in red. It mixes well with brights, neutrals and patterns alike, but of course like any bold fashion fad that comes along, creating the perfect look can take a bit of knowledge and maybe even some practice. So no matter if it’s always been your favorite hue or you’re just dipping your toes into the water, we can show you how to nail this season’s hottest trend. So get ready to dress up and paint the town red, friends!

As discussed, red can be a fierce hue, but it can also be completely chic and romantic at the same time. To tone it down a bit, pair it with a soft pink. The combination (once a fashion faux paux) can be complementary and contemporary. Cropped pants are also all the rage right now, so why not double up on fashion statements? Pair them with an oversized slouchy bag or structured tote (like our Chevron inspired, Abby Tote), fall mules (also SO cute!) and a bold red lip.

If you’re searching for another way to spice up your usual weekend denim, just adding a red item or two can make your outfit infinitely trendier. We love the combination of boyfriend jeans, a silk top, tailored blazer and red accessories, which also of course includes a rosy red cheek.

To take this outfit into the evening, throw on dressier jeans and some flirty red heels. Like we said, you’ll likely find yourself slipping into them more often than you think.

To dress this look up even more, swap jeans for an A-line skirt- perfect for work or fancier events! The red bag and shoes in this outfit will be just eye-catching enough and add that little something extra to a classic black and white suit.
