Fresh from the menswear shows it seems that wine-like red and purple tones are to be firmly in place as an on trend colour for men this year. Rich burgundy, deep crimson, bold brights and dusty maroons were just a few of the red shades on show for the season. My favourites here are Salvatore Ferragamo’s quilted red sweater and Emporio Armani’s deep, reflective coat.
I love these colours. They are great for adding vibrant colour to your look, but they can also work wonders as an accent colour so this is a trend that guys everywhere can work into their outfits seamlessly. If you want to keep it casual, go for simple red pieces like the Polo Ralph Lauren shirt or jumper from Topman. For a higher fashion edge, choose rich textured red fabrics, like corduroy, velvet (like this Alexander McQueen blazer) or silk.
Red has already become one of the years best selling colours for men and there are plenty of options to suit all personalities and price ranges – From Alexander McQueen and Ralph Lauren to Asos and Topman.
