A pop of red: where to shop and how to style the trend

A pop of red: where to shop and how to style the fashion trend

Trends can be pretty fickle and unwearable past a certain point, but there are some that feel simultaneously of-the-moment and classic. You might have noticed a lot more red accessories and garments being worn, styled and designed as of late – and we're loving the trend of putting a bright pop of the hue into the mix of a neutral outfit.

Even better, you're not subscribing to a viral fashion moment that will never see the light of day again – in fact, a red accessory can be styled and restyled for eternity – and when it comes to sustainable shopping, that's our first port of call.

Below, we round up some of the ways we're styling pops of red into our outfits this season, and a few of our favourite places to shop the trend.

The red handbag is an easy way to accessorise without having to put too much thought into things. As long as the base of your outfit is neutral, the red bag will effortlessly slot into the look. There's no limit on the type, size or shape of the bag – as long as you love it, that's what counts. We love a vintage bag, but we also think there are some fun options available right now that you can add into the mix.

The search for the perfect red cardigan is one that has consumed many of us as of late (just me, maybe?), but it's an easy way to add cheer to your autumnal layering. Of course, we'd pair with a white tee or blouse, and a pair of classic jeans, but you can pair it with just about anything – fun trousers, a mini skirt, you name it!

Oh so French, the red ballet flat, pump or Mary Jane shoe are quintessentially Parisian at heart. The look is the perfect way to dress up a pair of simple blue jeans for those days when you feel like they need a colourful companion. They're also a great way to spice up an LBD, or your favourite pair of boxer shorts. Though maybe we'd avoid pairing with anything too gingham unless you're going for a Dorothy cosplay...
