There are many shades of red and it is important to get the right shade of red for your skin tone. Here are my tips on how to wear RED the colour of the season.

Here is an outfit from Marks and Spencer a red jumper and red skirt and worn together, they do look like a knitted dress. The added advantage of this is you that can wear both items separately. This is a warm red, you can see the yellow undertone and see how it will complement a warm skin tone. This skirt is an Autograph wool blend ribbed asymmetrical midi skirt at £59.00 The jumper also autograph wool blend round neck and bell sleeve at £45.00.

You don’t have to wear all red. You could wear the jumper with black jeans and boots with a black leather biker jacket. The skirt with a silky coloured blouse, black shoes or boots to dress it down. There will be lots of combinations with these two core pieces making many outfits. Wearing this lovely bright colour will also give you energy and confidence.

Be adventurous, instead of styling your red jumper or blouse with the usual black, navy or white why not consider, any shade of grey, dark green, caramel, stone or beige. Add a pop of red colour to your trousers of skirt in one of these colours will bring both alive.

These examples are the two extremes but there are lots of shades of red in both cool and warm tones. I suggest that you go into a shop and try the two different reds on. Take photos of yourself and see which you think most flatters your skin. If you are shopping on your own you can ask your friends what they think when you get home. Experiment with colour it is so much fun. Once your body as absorbed the colour your face will tell you if it likes it. I hope that has given you some insight to the various colours of red available and work out what suits you.
