The best kind of trends to latch on to in any given season are those ones that have more than a single season of puff in their sails. For Spring/Summer 13 we’ve seen the usual smattering of brights about, but if you’ve picked up anything in red, then you’ve lucked out, as that is one of the hue’s set to sprint on into Fall.
From coats to leather jackets, day dresses to evening gowns and even the odd Red Riding Hood cape thrown in too, there’s something for everyone out there. So let’s take a closer look.
Sticking with the leather theme – who can resist a biker jacket? This glossed leather one from R13 has just the right touch of dark red lustre to make it work seamlessly with next Fall’s more sombre neutrals.
For the perfect office to party dress, take a look at this Valentino piece. I saw it being modelled in the flesh at the recent Jimmy Choo/Browns Fashion event at Grace Belgravia, and I kid you not, it has the kind of fit and flare style that can make even the thick waisted amongst us imagine they actually own a nipped in waist. For similar styles try Issa London or Alaia.
Knitwear is always on target when the weather starts to turn, so look no further than this oversized cable knit by Chinti and Parker for a ‘bang on trend’ take on the boyfriend knit.
Let’s not forget the collar detail top. This Marc by Marc Jacobs one is perfect now when paired with shorts for the office, then switch it up for Fall by adding a cardigan and wide leg pants.
Finally no closet is complete without a tailored jacket. Try this Earl crepe blazer from Joseph for a corporate finish to your look.
If you haven’t snagged anything in this colour yet, then now’s the time to pounce. With Net-a-Porter announcing it’s online sale in the USA today – seriously the site has just gone into meltdown if you’ve been trying to get on there – this is the perfect opportunity to grab something red and on trend for Fall.
