How Fashionistas Wear Red

Hi Everyone,

Red is a colour many of us associate with Christmas. Could it be because Santa is dressed in a wonderful rich red colour? So with Christmas just around the corner it’s the perfect time to dig through the most recent Fashion Week street style photos and see how the fashionistas were styling red in Paris and Milan…

Certain trends came to light such as tartan – you simply can’t go wrong with a piece of red tartan this Winter. Long over the knee red boots are a hot item too – the higher the heel the better. The simple red maxi dress is a wardrobe staple and red velvet trousers will get you anywhere. Red frills also currently popular with fashionistas.
