Celebrate Red

Red, a bold and lively hue that is synonymous with the upcoming Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day festivities. A symbol of good fortunes, passion and vitality; the red colour is one that definitely injects vibrancy into one’s wardrobe.There are many different ways to wear this powerful shade ; whether you choose to add bursts of the colour to your outfit , or having it top-to-toe.

Having a statement piece of clothing like a jacket or blazer in the striking tone immediately sets you apart from the rest. Only for the daring man who exudes confidence.

For the casuals, opt for a red shirt with a graphic print. Pair it with staples in blue, black or white to tone down the rest of your look.

For those who are slightly more sartorially conservative, another great way of incorporating red into your look is through the use of accessories. For a crisp tailored suit, pocket squares, bow ties and ties in red accents add a fresh pop of colour.

For more casual attires, red accessories offer more accessible ways of pulling off the look. Experiment with different textures, patterns and embellishments in statement accessory pieces like belts, scarves, shoes and bags. Such accessories against plain coloured t-shirts or bottoms give an overall classy, yet effortless colour- blocking effect to one’s look.

Still sceptical about incorporating this warm colour into your wardrobe? Instead of the brighter cherry red, opt for a more versatile shade of red –burgundy. This rich and sophisticated tone will add an interesting twist to your everyday staples.
