trendspotting: red hot

Red's been having a major comeback recently, and it's on a real winning streak for Fall 2012. It's a colour that represents a gamit of emotions and personalities; from seduction to confidence to rage to passion. It's also a colour that looks good on a all skin-tones. The key is to find the right hue. Reds range from orange-tined coral to blue-tinted maroon, so the trick is to search for the red that suits you best and stick to it! Designers also showed a myriad of different red fabrications, in everything from lace to suede. If you're more of a print-lover, there are lots of red hot prints to choose from, too. Whatever your style, whatever your colouring, whatever your budget, make sure to introduce some red into your wardrobe this coming winter. It's a colour that we can't wait to wear!
