In the Red? You should be......

Red. It makes us think of love, passion, fire, the heart, phone boxes and lipstick. What is not to like?! As we face a cold snap it also adds warmth to our wardrobe. SS12 is all about bold colour blasts and red is your best friend in this department. So, jump ahead of the fash pack and pick up some red hot pieces that will keep you toasty now but also grab those items that will see you right through to summer holidays!

Clash Happy

What an unbelievably generous trend! We suspect the basis of this mish mash look is the long suffering “just got dressed in the dark” or “haven’t got round to a big wash yet” syndromes. The key elements appear to be:

1. Invest in a bold print dress, skirt or trouser. Like these…...

Pucci Maxi

2. Add further exciting print in form of knit, shirt or oversized scarf in totally clashing, uncoordinated goodness… comme ca…...

Marc Jacobs

Just Cavalli 

And ta da – mashing up your prints to the cheery sound of clashing symbols. Finally, a trend that you can be totally slap dash about and still look like you totally meant it. Come on Spring!
