As well as being on trend – fiery, bright and bold, shades of’red dominated the catwalks?earlier this year – it’s a shade that anyone can wear, no matter what skin tone you have. The key to making it work in the here and now is to mix and match different tones of red with as many berry hues as you can find – texture is your friend, and as Fashion Director Marie Kelly says in the September?Issue of IMAGE Magazine, it’s the key to looking “hot rather than scorched.” Browse below for ten high street picks you can treat yourself to with payday just around the corner:
