Code Red


Red is not only the must-have colour trend of A/W 17 but combined with the Christmas season and you have no excuses for not, at the very least, investing in a ‘little red dress’ for the festivities.

“Tis the season to be jolly” and what can possibly make you feel more cheery than a new LRD.


If you are convinced that red is not the colour for you look no further and read on because as the style icon herself, Audrey Hepburn said, "There is a shade of red for every woman."

If you are jewel coloured with bright eyes (blues or greens) and a brunette (think Liz Hurley) then there is nothing better than that beautiful deep claret red that will make your eyes sparkle even more and compliment your colour to perfection. Those of you with red tones, whether it be brown eyed with chestnut hair or beautiful auburn locks are better going with the warmer orangey tones of red. Those of you lucky enough to be blessed with the cooler blue eyed blonde haired (Grace Kelly) or matured to that cool sophisticated silver grey colour with striking blue eyes then stick to the cooler reds – pillar box reds will look striking on you and let’s face it when is there a better time to stand out of the crowd and look stunning. Those of your with darker skin tones and brown eyes will look striking in the warmer red tones.


Red has many attributes and conjures many emotions: strong, empowering, sexy, romantic, energizing to name a few. One thing is for sure red is evocative.


The little red dress (LRD) is also known “To muddle men’s minds” according to the Huffington post ( is said to lure men in and confuse their brains……… sexy, powerful, subconsciously confusing and intriguing.


But whatever the reason may be behind wearing red this Christmas we all know that is quite simply makes us feel great!
