Red is a very powerful colour and that’s why it is sometimes difficult to find it a suitable partner. Here are 4 suggestions from our Personal Shoppers to ensure this colour doesn’t steal your thunder.

Red and blue: the energy match

These two primary colours create an instant contrast to fill you with energy. A satin midi skirt in blue and a red oversized jumper create an eye-catching outfit. Finish it by adding a pair of neutral-coloured sneakers, and you will shine.

Black and red: classics you can trust

With black adding sobriety and elegance and red bringing on vitality, this combination is as sophisticated as it gets. All you need is a red midi dress and a black cardigan or blazer. If you wear it at night, add a pair of stilettos. Or, if you prefer a more casual look, you may opt for military boots. Your call!

Red and green: opposites attract

Red and green are complementary colours, which makes them a great match. Join the colourblock trend with a pair of wide leg trousers in jade colour and a red jumper. Few outfits will make you feel trendier than this. Throw in a pair of oxford shoes to give your look a masculine touch.

Pink and red: unapologetically chic
