From dark shades to bright hues, radiant red makes fall accessories take flight.
From oxblood to cherry, red is the perfect neutral-that-isn’t-neutral to pack a little extra punch into your look this fall. Although head-to-toe monochrome is the top way to sport the trend on the runway, a ruby “it” bag is enough to ensure your look remains fresh and eye-catching on the streets. You can’t go wrong by choosing from 3.1 Phillip Lim’s new line of statement bags, each boasting catch phrases like “Cash Only” and “Totes Amaze” (we’re always up for a pun). If you’re feeling bold, try fashion’s latest take on the leather backpack: Utilitarian and sleek, it’s a stylish alternative to the classic tote or carryall. And for the footwear-obsessed, a rich red bootie or statement heel will take any look to the next level. Even those who don’t favor bright reds can take solace in the darker hues of the burgundy variety. Either way, you can’t go wrong this season when catching the red-eye.
