Why we’re loving red this month and how you can too

If you’ve spent most of your working life wearing greys and blacks then it’s understandable that adding a pop of red or a new pattern might take you out of your comfort zone, however, going for a bolder look doesn’t have to be daunting!

Throughout the month of February, we’re going to be looking at colour and how, whether you’re looking for love or not this month, wearing more colour can make you feel amazing. 

To be specific, we’re going to take a look at red. Red looks great whether you’re fair or dark and it’s a colour that’s more versatile than you may first think. 

If you’re new to colour then why not start small? Even small additions can change a whole look so start with an accessory like a hat, then if you feel ready for even more of a step out of your comfort zone, then you can look into other items like jumpers, jackets and outerwear.

The Wool Overcoat

You can’t deny that this Casentino wool overcoat is just stunning. Although a classic cut in a bold colour, this piece is timeless. The textured wool and richness of the red brings the item together perfectly. There’s nothing daunting about this (unless you find looking awesome daunting!)
