Scarlett fever!!

Question: How do I incorporate the colour RED into my wardrobe without looking like a lady of the night.

Answer: This season’s red-hot hues will light up your look – take inspiration from the zingy ‘orange-scarlet’ vermilion seen on the spring/summer ’10 catwalks. Our very own African designers such as Bunmi Koko, Deola Sagoe and David Tallie from South Africa have show cased Red in their collections.

Red is a stimulating and emotionally intense colour.  You are sure to get noticed when you wear red clothes so much so that red is not for shrinking violets.  It should be worn on days when you feel strong and can face the world.  As a colour, red may psychologically give you the edge on days when you need extra confidence and want to seem more dynamic than you feel. Yet you will look more astounding with a red dress if you know how to accessorize it properly. Here are some ideas you can use in sprucing up your red dress.

Choose shoes and bags that will give your red dress a total look. The common fashion blunder among many ladies is the belief that to look good, everything should match from head to toe. With the colour Red, THIS IS NOT ADVISED! Break up the outfit with other block colours like Yellow, Blue, Black as well as mettalics.

Consider the occasion. Whether it is daytime casual affair or evening formal cocktail – the accessories you use for a red dress should match the time and kind of event. For casual affair, turn a plain looking red dress into a show stopper by using the right yet appropriate accessories For an evening event, go all out with STATEMENT mettalic accessories.

Red looks AMAZING with animal print. But will everything, less is more!
