Colour of the month - True Red

raw-header_b.jpg

It's a new month, which means it's time for a new colour of the month! Although it's still very much summer, any clothes you're buying now will probably be with half an eye towards wearing them throughout the autumn as well, so a really flexible, mix and match colour which will go with everything and make you look and feel amazing regardless of your skintone is a definite win at this time of year. And if it's one which doesn't feel too tropical for autumn/winter outfits, all the better.

Step forward, True Red. Universally flattering, vibrant without being over the top, and one of the easiest accent colours to mix and match with the rest of your wardrobe.

Can I wear it?

In short, yes! True Red is one of our multi-season colours, and actually works for all four seasonal palettes. If you want to read more about multi-season colours, here's a whole post exploring the subject.

The key to making True Red work for your seasonal palette is in how you wear it (if you don't know which seasonal palette belongs to you, why not take our colour quiz to get started?). While Winters might wear True Red as a high contrast colour-pop against Navy and White, Autumns pair it with tonal shades like Pecan and Tan for a softer, richer look.

I know if is extremely "in" right now to put pink and red together, but personally I just don't care for the combination. I was however very interested in your suggestion of charcoal, silver grey, and red combination for Summers. I have been eyeing one of your darker grey pieces for awhile and this could just be my incentive to give it a try with a little red!
