It’s true: We’re still not over the whole millennial pink trend (guys, it really is that photogenic). But as we drift into another season, we’re ready to rock a new color that’s a bit more cold-weather appropriate. Our latest hue obsession? Bold, bright, looks-good-on-literally-everyone—red. Here are eight stylish outfits to prove it’ll be your fall wardrobe favorite.
PAIR WITH PINK
Just because we have a new color fixation doesn’t mean you have to get rid of all your blush pieces. Instead, rock the bold statement-making red in tandem. The result is equal parts feminine and badass.
OR WITH PLAID
All-plaid garments can feel a bit heavy, so break up the pattern with an eye-catching pop that adds contrast and instantly updates that vintage coat.
LAYER DIFFERENT SHADES
Oooh or get creative by layering your oxblood sweater with a cherry-red turtleneck and scarlet duster jacket for the most flattering monochromatic look of the season.
OR AS A STATEMENT
Ruby shoes and handbags can anchor an otherwise muted color scheme. Finish with a red lip to pull it all together.
WEAR IT TO WORK
Ever heard of a power suit? In the same vein, red is our power color. According to one study, wearing the bold hue makes you feel more confident. So grab a blood-red blazer and go crush that meeting like a boss.
OR ON THE WEEKENDS
Our ideal autumn outfit: An oversize sweater, track pants and sneakers. Rock one (or all) in the punchy crimson color and you’re sure to turn heads (yep, even in baggy sweats).
GO ALL OUT
Summer has its LWD, winter its LBD. Our go-to autumn ensemble, however, is the Little Red Dress. Perfect for weddings, date nights and everything in between, you’ll feel equal parts sultry and festive dressed head to toe in vermilion.
