Inspired: Red on Red

This fall, it's all about the red, all shades of red. It's amazing how this colour has blossomed from a single bright summer hue into a gradient of crimson, burgundy, ruby, oxblood - bolstering with richness and grandeur. The play on texture and shades adds depth to the story of the outfit, as if to say "forget about matching, I'm going to wear whatever the heck I want!" It's edgy. It's classy. It's chic.

Perhaps runway is not made for everyday wear, but fashion is not about copying/buying what the models and celebrities are wearing. It is about taking style cues and inspirations from the runway and incorporating it into your personal style. The inspiration could be anything from the colour palette and textures to the cut and overall feel of the collection. The same style can be recreated within a budget or even based on what already exists in your wardrobe. Here is my casual take on "Red on Red". Everything here I've owned for 1+ year, with the exception of the jeans I bought at a Joe Fresh Sale this summer.

So, consider this a challenge. Let's get inspired and get creative!

Happy Styling!
