Ravishing Red Trend

Red is the color of romance, an evocative hue full of passion.  It is no surprise then, that this color has enamored designers this season.  From coats to thigh high boots, we love the splash of intense color this warm shade is bringing to our fashion game.  Read on for a selection of our favorite red accessories and how to style them.

Rule 1:  Use it as an accent.   Feeling drab in your work attire?   Try a splash of red in an accessory, like a statement clutch.

Rule 2:  Balance the colors.  If you go for red boots, keep the rest of the look simple.  Or if you want, go all the way!

Rule 3:  For colder weather, there is nothing sexier than a red trench.  We love how flattering the look can be when belted.  If you find yourself on a holiday cruise, try a red bikini instead.  And, if you are feeling really bold, combine the two as Candice Swanepoel did on a beach vacation.

Finally, here is a collection of our favorite red runway pieces from the Resort shows.
