After a summer filled with Barbiecore and hot pink, it seems only natural that we moved on to red just in time for fall and winter. The tomato red hue popped up in most major fashion label’s collections giving us tons of inspiration for styling it. From head-to-toe monochromatic statement dressing to styling it as perfect pop of color in accessories, shop our edit now.
The easiest way to work it into your wardrobe? A new sweater. ALC’s drop-sleeve sweater is a showstopper, with details like ribbing at the wrist and hem that takes it to the next level. ME + EM’s cropped sweater has a cute zipper detail that For something more everyday, J.Crew’s shrunken v-neck sweater or classic fit crewneck.
There are so many good red blazers out there in every style, like this double-breasted blazer with red buttons, a Chanel-esque tweed lady jacket, or a more minimalist crepe blazer from Cinq a Sept. A truly marvelous belted wool coat or a tomato red puffer will brighten up any winter day.
With all this red around, it can feel like Christmas came early. I’m already thinking about some of the more dramatic pieces in this edit as holiday party foreplay. Look at this gorgeous paneled dress from ME + EM, which reminds me of something Kiera Knightley would wear in a period piece. Look at those sleeves! J.Crew’s long cherry red slip skirt would be great with a sequined top for the parties, or your comfiest big sweater and ballet flats for right now. This ALC pleated jumpsuit makes a major impact, like an updated Working Girl costume.
If you’re color averse, the easiest way to slowly dip your toe in the red pool with a cashmere beanie or a fun pair of shoes. I love this Frances Valentine pair of red patent leather boots with a sculptural gold heel, these high-heeled buckled Mary Janes, or these Bibi Lou loafers.
