Red-y for work

Red is the colour of confidence. When worn to work, it immediately gives off a strong look that says, ‘I’m in charge; I’m a leader.’ It’s a bold choice, particularly for the office, which makes it that much more impactful. It also allows us to stand out in garments made from simple, minimal cuts because the adornment of colour is striking on its own. And it’s the perfect shade to transition from work to party. As the saying goes, ‘dress for the job you want’, and the colour red expresses a winning attitude. So whether, the tone of red we wear comes in the form of a blouse, pencil dress, heels, skirt, or a bag, a touch of it exudes passion, and is a simple way to exert confidence. Red was a big player at the SS16 shows, and it’s an even bigger player for our working wardrobes. Here are my top high-street picks (with the exception of the discounted Joseph dress) of red attire for the office:
