Why red? The runway’s shift from fuchsia to classic red can only be characterized by the ever-growing obsession with sustainable anti-trend movement, Quiet Luxury. Long-lasting coveted neutrals are made exciting with bright pops of a color with boundless potential: Red!
Effortlessly paired with denim, olive, black, gray, white, cream, camel and brown, red accent pieces are ideal for wardrobe building. The rise of Vivienne Westwood-esque tartan plaids and thin pinstripes lend itself to pops of red both in pairing and within fabrics themselves.

How to Wear All Shades of Red

You may have heard that different color seasons need to wear different shades of red. While everyone looks good in true red, you’ll run into plenty of pieces that fall into a cool or warm category. The author at offers a helpful chart to find your perfect red:

While it’s helpful to know which reds flatter you most, it’s also possible to wear reds that don’t fall under your season’s best colors. Following the pop of red trend is the easiest way to achieve this! Wearing difficult shades of red away from your face as an accent, or surrounding the red accent to ground your outfit with a more flattering color are two simple solutions.

An example from JCREW styling a bright poppy red silk button down shirt to peek out of an easy-to-pull-off navy blazer. The navy blazer grounds the outfit. Buttons near the collar are undone to create more space between the bright color and the wearer’s face.
