Fall Trend: Red Hot

If you’re like us, you can’t get enough of fall fashion and the latest trends. Here’s a closer look at the season’s statement-making hue.


There’s something about the fall collections that makes fashion feel entirely new each year. Whether it’s a fresh silhouette, interesting embellishment or a modern take on a vintage style, our favorite season for fashion is most definitely fall. We see trends emerge when designers zero in on the same inspiration: a type of fabric, the cut of a boot, or in this case, a bold color. 


Shades of red—from bright scarlet to deep crimson—appeared on almost every international runway during the fall/winter collections, including Tod’s, CH Carolina Herrera, REDValentino and Céline, among others. The vivid shade is also found at retailers such as Banana Republic, J. Crew, Anthropologie and DKNY. Wondering how to best wear this confident color?

Max Mara

Layer different shades and textures of head-turning red for maximum impact this season. We adore the look of a stylish coat worn over separates or the powerful presentation of a matching red jacket and trousers paired with sneakers or ankle boots. 

Saint Laurent

Not a fan of monochromatic dressing? Accessorize this season with pops of red via a statement handbag that effortlessly adds interest to a neutral palette such as basic black. Another clever way to try out the trend is in the form of sportswear. As the weather cools down, don a red knit sweater with your favorite pair of slacks, leggings or denim. And for the ultimate style statement, we are coveting the fall/winter collections’ sexy red heels that pair perfectly with black cocktail wear or a pair of skinny jeans.
