Another colour we are enthused about is red. Spring/Summer 2011 gives you ‘Poppy’ John Smedley’s bright red.
Colours we’ve spoke about in previous blogs include Orange and Blue, work beautifully when teamed with red. Seen on the catwalk from designers DKNY and Derek Lam, the latter saw a stunning combination of duke blue and red in harmony. Blues create balance when worn together as the blue, tones down the intensity of red. Alternatively red next to orange, our take ‘Orange Spice’ offers a stylish, warm outfit that oozes chic. Working with last season’s colour, ‘Caramel’ Red can instantly update your look.
For a less intense look, pink can be a safer option or when used appropriately, red used as a highlight colour in smaller amounts.
