Fashion’s fixation with the color red


Forget “Fifty Shades of Grey”. Fashion’s latest obsession revolves around the color red. This season marks red’s dramatic return as the “it” color after a hiatus of over two decades. In the mid-eighties, red took center stage in movies and music. Who could forget Gene Wilder’s hysterical quest to meet the red dress wearing beauty in the 1984 film “The Woman in Red”, or the love song “Lady in Red” that rose to the top of the music charts a few years later?

Red commands attention and expresses authority. This head turning shade also epitomizes passion and panache.  Red, classified as a neutral, adds vibrancy to the family of other neutrals, like brown and grey. A red blouse spices up a simple suit, or a pair of jeans. Although fifty shades of red may not exist, the color wheel holds plenty of red possibilities for a range of personal styles and complexions. The long list of reds includes cherry, tomato, wine, crimson and oxblood.

If you aren’t bold enough to wear that red dress, how about adding just a pop of red to your outfit?  The following accessories made Style Matter’s red objects of desire list:

  1. Coach Legacy canteen cross body bag in deep cherry at $158 – small and sensational;
  2. Fossil double wrap red leather buckle bracelet for $38 – definitely arm candy;
  3. Ann Taylor color block infinity scarf in berry and black for $44.99 – the ultimate power piece.
