If you’re tired of black and brown, slipping into a ruby tone could be the solution to your sartorial woes. Just in for the approaching holiday season, this outerwear trend can be spotted all over the city sidewalks and on social media. Draw your inspiration from the designers themselves, and rock this runway approved trend today with our tips.
At Jil Sander, the aesthetic was refined and tailored, in the form of a three-quarter length wool coat. With its deep red colour and contrasting bold black buttons, this long topper brought an elegant finish to the catwalk. For an inspired look, simply add a black turtleneck sweater and a pair of thigh-high black leather boots.
Jason Wu revealed the red frock coat in all its glory, complete with a voluminous flared skirt and a plunging V-neckline. The designer added red suede pumps that complemented the colour of the coat, and a chic handbag. If you’re looking to sport a monochromatic outfit in reddish tones, look no further than this example.
Bulky and cozy was the key look at Max Mara, where a long plush coat was layered over a ribbed turtleneck and velvety smooth trousers. The loose bottoms, matching colours and thick coat all helped to pull together an effortlessly wintry look. Whether you’re on your way to meet family, sing carols or pick up Christmas shopping, this is the way to casually sport daytime red.
