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 complete your look, take inspiration from the glamorous era of the Great Gatsby by painting on a matte red lipstick and matching red nails.
Follow our tips and you’ll be sure to shine bright like a gem!
