This fiery hue has dominated runways across the world and is now set to rule our wardrobes. A sea of red has invaded the fashion sphere and is currently carrying us all in a tide of sophistication and sass, which we here at OTL HQ are loving.

The colour once known for being flirtatious and sultry, has matured and become less sexy and more refined and sophisticated. Red may be taking a subtler approach this Autumn/ Winter but don’t underestimate it just yet, it’s not lost its identity entirely – it’s still a major power player on the colour spectrum.

Wondering how you can work the colour of the season into your wardrobe? Lucky for us all, red works well against any skin tone so don’t limit yourself if you love a particular shade – just make it work for you. You may think an all red outfit would be overpowering and a huge statement, but believe it or not, more is less when it comes to this crimson colour. Teaming different shades of red together can keep a look tonal and an outfit fluid, which enables this colour to be super wearable. However, if you like your look to be striking, then go for a focal piece that’s an interesting texture such a velvet or leather. 

Either way, make sure you’re the lady in red this Autumn / Winter!
