After saturating the runways earlier this year, then cropping up on all of our favourite influencers and celebrities throughout the summer and autumn months, there’s no denying that red is the colour of the season. Whilst the bold saffron shade was everywhere this summer, this season, the bright red’s sultry older sister is setting the scene, ready to take over as fashion-set’s colour of choice this winter.
As we move towards the colder months, deep cherry tones are prevailing as the new-season shade shoppers are searching for. The fashion set has been gravitating towards these rich tones to inject a flush of colour into their evening and day-time ensembles. Whilst this year we’ve seen burgundy bags, scarlet scarfs and crimson coats have their moment, and right now it’s all about the cherry red heel trend. It’s highly likely that this can be traced back to Miu Miu’s It heels of the season, the buckled slingbacks that have been selling like hotcakes and favoured by editors, celebs and influencers alike.
Already spotted on Catherine, Princess of Wales only this week for an engagement in London, the new spectrum of red shoes for winter is quickly catching on. Wearing hers with a sweeping red cape coat and matching hat, The Princess opted for a bold tonal outfit that she kept looking neat through the use of structured tailoring and cohesive colour.
Beloved not only by The Princess of Wales, the ruby red shoe was seen earlier this month on Lady Amelia Spencer who, similarly to The Princess, styled a tonal red outfit with the trending shoe.
Across the runway the deep burgundy shade peppered the collections, appearing across The Row, Balmain, Tory Burch and Valentino—who balanced the striking shade with soft neutral tones and let it sing with bright, colourful pairings. If you were apprehensive to style the brighter red shades that dominated during the summer, you might be more at home when experimenting with the rich, warm cherry tone. Dress up your favourite pair of jeans, or style with a sleek black trouser for a sophisticated evening look you’ll come back to time and again. There will, of course, always be a place in our wardrobes for classic black heels, flats and boots, but it’s fun to switch things up now and then.
