I am not really here to fluctuate between favourite chromes, even thought it really is part of my job to learn and report on what is said to be “in”. Funzies in other parts. Well, right now, as fashion seems set on trying to eradicate the idea of a personal style edit; trend watchers, edufashioned humans in the know and devoted secret societies are piecing together reports suggesting connective references –control issues much? Anyway, this here I have gathered from a blatant dress-up responses, some of which were masqueraded as “last minute picks” throughout the award season. If the mother of all red carpet processions (the 87th Academy Awards) is anything to go by, the colour RED, in all its hues reigns right, right now. #ShockFactor I am for it!
Ok, my reasons could very well be said to mark several referrals really. Including shape shifting cuts; hello midi culottes! Street style relevance; see these killa PUMA kicks. And plentiful androgyny; check the box-cut retro top borrowed from the fairer sex. I have also, never not loved the excitement from styling oneself into the monochromatic trends, using pieces that have been in one’s closet for a while. Monochromatic is used rather loosely in this regard, especially if you are looking at these pics with a layman’s naked eye.
I could go on lengthily about the multi shades of red I went with here, but I shall dare not ignite confusion as spread by last week’s optical illusion frock. I am just keen to verify the charisma of red colourwashes; from, scarlet, to ruby lava, to lust worthy cranberry tints, passion bursting rosso corsas and the rusty chestnut from the chosen background here. It makes all the sense that the psychology of this colour circles around passion and confidence.
