Red is the new black for Autumn/Winter 2023

Red is the colour of passion, power, and excitement. It’s a bold and eye-catching hue that can make any outfit stand out. And for Autumn/Winter 2023, red is the hottest colour on the runways and has already started filling the stores.

Why red makes you feel happy and empowered

Red is a colour that is associated with positive emotions such as happiness, excitement, and confidence. When you wear red, you feel more confident and powerful. According to colour psychologists, ‘Red is linked to passion and love as well as power and anger.’

Red trend tips for Autumn/Winter


Create a look that is classic and timeless and can be dressed up or down when you start using Red. For a formal look, try a long, flowing red dress or go for a red suit to make a statement. It’s perfect for the office or a night out on the town. If you want something a little more toned down, a red jumper is a versatile piece that can be worn with jeans, skirts, or trousers. It’s a great way to add a pop of colour to your outfit.

How to style red:

Style red however you want to burst onto the scene in festive fashion. Here are a few tips on making the most of the colour in your Autumn/Winter wardrobe.

  • Accessorise your red outfit: Red is a statement colour, so you don’t need to overdo it on the accessories. However, a few well-chosen accessories can really elevate your look. Try adding a red handbag, red shoes, or red jewellery to your red outfit.
  • Consider using red as part of a palette of colours. Add in some black, yellow or blue items to highlight the red look.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment: Red is a fun and flirty colour, so don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles. Try wearing a red dress with sneakers for a casual look, or try pairing a red suit with heels for a more formal look.
