Red was a headliner on the spring/summer runways, and not just as an accent color. Even off the runway, the bright, bold hue is being worn from head to toe by some of the biggest fashion icons in the biz. Even Pantone — the official color language for designers — has named cherry tomato in its Spring 2018 Top 12 Color Palette.
Now it’s your turn to test out the trend. Read on for our fav red outfits from Instagram, and get inspired by these fashion-forward ladies who’re doing the red trend right.
Matchy in Red
One of the easiest ways to go all red is with a dress. This casual chic ensemble features a red ankle length dress cinched at the waist to emphasize the model’s feminine curves. A gold metal chain belt with dangling charms pop against the red fabric and the multi-toned boots add depth and texture. She’s topped things off with a red jacket in the exact shade of the dress — a perfect application of monochrome.
Fun with Red Patterns
This red outfit may be a hodgepodge of different patterns, textures, and styles, but it works. The red skirt with gold button detailing pairs well with the black-and-red chevron tank top. And then there’s that red floral lace button-up! It adds even more visual appeal, especially when worn with the oversized red tinted sunglasses.
The takeaway here? Mixing patterns is fun (and on trend by the way)! Get creative and double up on your trends by combining red prints and textures.
