How to wear the colour red the right way. The colour red is a classic and can make any outfit a statement look. But like any bold trend, creating the right look takes some time and practice.

So before you go throwing on any red clothes you have in your wardrobe, you may want to read out tips on how to wear this colour the right way.

Red All Over

Sometimes to get over your fear of a fashion trend, you just need to jump straight in. although it may be a bold look, going red head-to-toe is completely on trend and looks stylish.

While there are numerous ways you can wear red, opt for a bottom and top in matching shades. From there you can mix things up with a top that’s either lighter, darker or patterned.

Red Bottoms

If you’re not ready to go red all over, that’s ok. How about focusing on your legs? Choosing a red pair of trousers or skirt can still create a statement without being over the top.

To keep your look balanced, remember to make your legs the focus of your look.

Red Coats/Jackets

Red coats and jackets will instantly turn up the drama and style of your wardrobe. Whether you choose a trench coat or leather jacket, your look is sure to be bold and eye-catching.

Remember to keep the rest of your look minimal and subdued.

Red And Pink

Red can be an intense colour but it can also look chic and romantic. To add a feminine and flirty aesthetic to your look, try pairing your favourite red pieces with pink. The combination of the two colours can create a contemporary and fashion forward look.

Red And Denim

If you want to spice up your usual weekend denim look, inject a red hue. All you need to do is choose what item you want to wear in red. While jumpers, coats and dresses work well, you can rock a gingham shirt as well.

Red And Leather

While red undoubtably goes well with denim, it pairs perfectly with leather. If you want to exude a bit of attitude, pair a leather jacket with a red outfit. The combination of a bright hue and a tough fabric is an intense and edgy one.

Red Patterns

Patterns are a fun and playful way to rock any trend. Although they can look intense, patterns can help subdue the vibrant red color by breaking it up. Rocking a red pattern is a great way to ease into the trend.

While florals are a lovely choice, you can go for gingham, tartan and stripes.

Red Jumpers

Warm up this winter with a red jumper. Not only will you not get chilly, but the colour will help keep you looking hot. A pair of nude cigarette trousers are the perfect match for your jumper. For a finishing touch, slip on mules and a skinny black belt will complete your outfit.

Red Accessories

Accessories are a great way to spice up any outfit. By adding a red hat or scarf into your look, you can make you casual ensemble look trendy and stylish. The beauty of the colour red is that it is versatile and can be tailored to suit anyone’s look. Red accessories can help you make a statement without being too intense.
