It’s true: We’re still not over the whole millennial pink trend (guys, it really is that photogenic). But as we drift into another season, we’re ready to rock a new color that’s a bit more cold-weather appropriate. Our latest hue obsession? Bold, bright, looks-good-on-literally-everyone—red. Here are eight stylish outfits to prove it’ll be your fall wardrobe favorite.
PAIR WITH PINK
Just because we have a new color fixation doesn’t mean you have to get rid of all your blush pieces. Instead, rock the bold statement-making red in tandem. The result is equal parts feminine and badass.
OR WITH PLAID
All-plaid garments can feel a bit heavy, so break up the pattern with an eye-catching pop that adds contrast and instantly updates that vintage coat.
LAYER DIFFERENT SHADES
Oooh or get creative by layering your oxblood sweater with a cherry-red turtleneck and scarlet duster jacket for the most flattering monochromatic look of the season.
USE AS AN ACCENT
Not ready to fully commit to the flushed hue? Adding in a red sweater or crewneck tied around your waist is a laid-back way to ease into the trend (and transition your summer pieces to autumn).
OR AS A STATEMENT
Ruby shoes and handbags can anchor an otherwise muted color scheme. Finish with a red lip to pull it all together.
WEAR IT TO WORK
Ever heard of a power suit? In the same vein, red is our power color . According to one study, wearing the bold hue makes you feel more confident. So grab a blood-red blazer and go crush that meeting like a boss.
