SEEING RED RED RED


In our swinging sixties we have to try harder. Don't be afraid to pull out all the stops to be noticed.

Make a bold fashion statement with a monochromatic, coral-red outfit. The fiery hues in these three pieces certainly pack a visual punch. It's an outfit strong enough to get attention, for all the right reasons.


In our swinging 6ixties we simply have to try harder, and sometimes we have to pull out all the stops to take command of the room and to be noticed. Wearing one colour from head to toe makes a spectacular sartorial statement. An all-red outfit can be both sensational and startling. (In a good way!)

Tonal outfits are flattering, but there's a certain art to bringing together pieces of the same colour. These warm orange & coral tones aren't an exact match, but together they make a vibrant statement. Aim for a similar color palette, but don’t be afraid to mix and match.


The Zara orange-red flared pants started this ensemble. The high-waisted pants with a slight bell bottom add a youthful twist. An red-orange T-shirt adds a layer of monochromatic fun. But the cherry on top, so to speak, is the flashy, red-orange blazer.

Not brave enough to go head to toe with that coral-red? Then break up the outfit with a white jacket to bring the heat down a notch. Here I've slipped on those stunning Si Rossi 4-inch orange platforms. Don't they add an extra oomph?

RED RED RED DETAILS

  • Continue the tonal colour with shoes. Choosing the same colour shoes extends the leg line.

  • A gold belt breaks up the colour and gives visual relief.

  • Blazers that fall below the hip are figure flattering.

  • Keep the design elements simple — even plain. Let the colour do the talking. (And in the case of the Si Rossi platforms, the walking.)
