Fall's Biggest Trend: Red

Whether you've watched the runway shows or just picked up a few fall fashion magazines you've probably seen that red on red on red is taking over this season. Personally, I love the color, but I do understand the hesitation to go out in head-to-toe red. 

Just like all colors red comes in many different variations. Going head-to-toe red means you can mix and match your shades like this Victoria Beckham look or you can go monochrome à la Givenchy. So if you want to go all out and try an all red look, add a few accessories to your wardrobe in the season's hottest color, or just dip your toe into the trend with a red lip or classic manicure, I've found some of my favorite pieces in four of the main reds you'll see in stores!

Bright red is the the classic apple red, the chic red lip we all search for, the color my mom has painted her nails for as long as I can remember (I've linked her favorite shade). This red is a color so many people can wear, but is bright enough to really make a statement. If you don't want to spend a ton of money on a trend this is a safe color to pick up some classic pieces in. The bright red won't really over go out and you can always enjoy a red cashmere sweater around the holidays.

Scarlet is a much more vibrant color with a bit of orange mixed in. This color isn't something I normally gravitate towards, but these pieces are all something I would love to add to my closet. In fact, I've considered picking up the three pieces from Boden to really try the head-to-toe look. If you really want to go monochrome, I reccommend picking up all the pieces from the same brand to ensure that the reds are super close. Pairing three pieces that are slightly off looks like a mistake. You can totally wear a darker red from down below with one of these two lighter shades, though, if you want to spread the wealth!

Enter my all time favorite shade of red: Cranberry! This is a darker red with a pink undertone. It's universally flattering and just screams fall. It's the color of the deepest red fall leaves. There are quite a few pieces in my closet in this shade already, but I might be adding a few more this season (totally adding this sweater, while it's on sale)! This is the shade that I will spend a little more on because I know I will wear it year after year. I mean those Sam Edelman pumps are kind of must for cropped denim and a chunky sweater. 

Oxblood has been a popular shade for a few FW season now. If you've never worn red or aren't sure about the color on you, purchase something in this shade. It's a dark enough color that you won't feel like a walking stop sign and it can basically be worn as a neutral. Pair this blazer with a striped tee under it or this skirt (keep an eye on it to come back in stock in your size) with a pale pink sweater for another take on the red-tone look. 

Are you planning to try out an all-red look this season? I'd love to see it!

Love you lots,
