Ruby Red – The Christmas Trend

As Christmas party invites begin to pile up, it’s the perfect time to invest in some red pieces for your wardrobe. Red is a flexible colour that can work for any event, from casual drinks with office friends to get-togethers with the family.

Think rich shades of crimson and deep wine hues that will add a touch of class to any outfit – and don’t be afraid to overload on the glitter and sequins this season. If you’re worried about looking too much like a festive bauble, tone down the outfit by adding a simple velvet clutch bag or wrap around a faux fur collar.

To make your outfit party-ready, use gold accessories like statement jewellery and gemstone head pieces to complement the red tones.

To complete your look, take inspiration from the glamorous era of the Great Gatsby by painting on a matte red lipstick and matching red nails.
