Red. The color of blood, the color of royalty, of luxury. Ever since we saw Zoe Saldana in her Zac Posen, Heidi Klum in her Galliano and Angelina at the Salt premiere, we knew the days of Marilyn Monroe’s siren hued halter dress and the obsession that followed it were back. Red adds that much needed pop of color to the tried and tested sea of greys, blacks, nudes and camels in your Fall wardrobe.
This season, a ton of our favorite designers like Yigal Azrouel, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs and Dolce and Gabbana revisited the iconic tone. Now for those of us on a budget, try a sharp red blazer with a slate grey dress, a pair of red tights (a la Blair Waldorf!) or red jeans!
The options are endless. Get creative, or follow our lead with these budget friendly picks:
1. Cropped Button Front Jacket, $39 at Newport News
2. High Shine Full Tights in Maroon, $39 at Express
3. Foldover Collar Suede Bootie, $30 at Charlotte Russe
