Wine, traffic light, scarlet, blush, merlot, ruby, mahogany. Welcome the colour of the season into your wardrobe and make a style statement for AW15. From delicate prints at Dolce & Gabbana to colour block at Balmain, designers were using the varied complexions to enhance their collections for this Autumn, adding strong bursts of colour to their work. Dare to clash textures like Christopher Kane or strengthen the boldness with a jet of black like Balmain. Alternatively, soften the audacious shade with white in the style of Antonio Berardi, or follow the ways of Dolce & Gabbana by using the complexion to highlight intricate details of a print.

As echoed from the catwalk, the colour red has hit this Autumn Winters’ shop shelves hard, exploding into an array of different shades and complexions. Opt for a brighter crimson for a louder affair, choose a burgundy or berry for a sophisticated style, or why not clash the two together for a confident chic aura? Although, yes, the option with the highstreet trend is there to dress the colour up in a peplum dress or midi skirt or to dress it down in a casual tee or jumper, but where are all the great red floral prints and the blooming geometrical sixties shapes which are also set to hit this seasons shelves? They just aren’t there. Maybe more will appear as the season progresses, but this top colour trend could be all the more a little exciting on the highstreet if it were mixed and matched with other AW15 trends as it has all the potential to do so.
