A little bit of red is good for you

Red and white stripy top

Red is the colour of the season. It’s everywhere. Now is the time to embrace it. It’s easy to assume that’s it’s a difficult colour to wear, but don’t be shy, a little bit of red is good for you.

For the uninitiated, the best place to start is a red and white stripy t-shirt. Banish all thoughts of Where’s Wally immediately. This is actually a very low-key look – the white breaks up the red and makes it feel less, well, red.

Red stripy top and red tights

If you’re feeling brave, wear it with a pair of red tights. Personally, I love coloured tights and I’m mildly obsessed with finding the perfect pair. After much searching, I’ve found these ones, which are thick, opaque and very comfortable.

Tone everything down with a camel-coloured coat, a bit of denim and some tan boots. This all helps that vibrant red to feel low-key and not too shouty.

    All by stripy tops are navy or black – maybe I should try red for a change!

    I have red tights too but I normally only bring them out on Christmas Day 🙂 I’ve not bought anything red for ages but have just ordered a jumper from M&S. It’s such a cheery colour x

    I’ve hardly got anything red in my wardrobe. I’m much more of a ‘if it’s not black put it back’ kind of girl! I do try and embrace a bit of colour though and have a top like this that I love. I think I do need to give this trend a try x
