How to wear Red
Red is exciting. Red is hot. That is a given. How to wear it and make it look just right is an art. Red is bold and hence can be overwhelming to onlookers. Using it cautiously, with just the correct dose of drama, can be a show stealer.
Here are some quick notes for those who want a red-hot show.
1. Red is a Crowd Puller
Red tops the charts when it comes to drawing attention to your dress up. Make sure it assumes the center stage in a classy way; having a single element of red in your outfit does the trick. If you are wearing a statement piece in red, keep the other elements nude and dull, allowing the red to shine out, example: Glamor.
2. Tried and Tested Complements
Red works wonderfully with some color tones by adding charismatic personality to the wearer. Pair it with black, grey, white, beige and light blue to see its magic unfold, as you will see in our design Mulberry Bush.

Red looks great with animal prints; tiger stripes, leopard spots, crocodile skin patterns, zebra stripes, Dalmatian spots, a splash of faux-fur, whatever compliments your wild side.
The really brave hearted can go for an all red ensemble to put their most confident foot forward with Passion.
Be it red shoes, a red hat, or a stunning red pendant like Di-Classe, you can be sure that whatever red you choose, it will be a winner. As Audrey Hepburn rightly said – “There is a shade of red for every woman”.
