I’ve previously wrote in Pre-Spring 2010 that red shoes were a definite trend to keep your eye on, but now the designers have taken it from the feet and moved on up, many creating bold head to toe color outfits in all shades of red. From Cherry to Pimento, Apple to Beet the reds are all here to stay and making a statement.
Pre-Fall 2011 was an explosion of red all over the runways, regardless of occasion or fabrication. Deep red tones from Adam, Armani Collezioni and Elie Tahari look great for eveningwear, while classic reds at Jason Wu, Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang look great for cocktails and making a statement. My personal favorite use of red is the top and bottom combos that have a slight menswear feel by DKNY, Jenni Kayne and Thakoon. If you are feeling lady like though Oscar De La Renta, Nina Ricci and Reed Krakoff looks might fit the bill. If all that red makes you nervous though, just try on a red jacket ala Preen, Stella McCartney or Michael Kors.
Would you wear head to toe red or is it a look for runways only?
