RED ALERT ❤️️ How to Wear Red For Any Occasion

1st February 2017.
by Sarah.

All black errthing has a time and place, and Bae Day definitely isn’t it. It’s a key trend for SS17, and now’s the perfect time to declare our love for the colour of the season: this is PD’s killer guide on how to wear red.

How to Wear Red (and Steal More Hearts While You’re At It)

We’ve been stalking #PDBae uploads to find the sassiest ways to style red shoes, and our bloggin’ baes came up trumps. Thought you weren’t one for colourblocking? Trust us, the red trend’s about to steal your heart.

A lil je ne sais quoi

Wishing you were in Paris? This is how to wear red if you wanna ooze little bit of parisian chic in your day-to-day ootd. Have a plain base for your outfit, then style with red accents: we love the way the accessories here bring out and highlight the ACDC band tee.

Want to steal this look, but not feeling black? How about mix and matching red with white for spring season steeze.

We’ve been style crushin’ on Meryl since we saw her rocking Hailey Baldwin’s #PDxHB shoes, and now she’s firmly in our to-stalk list when we’re getting ready each morning. She’s schooling us in how to wear red by styling standout glitter heel boots with a t-shirt dress in a similar shade and denim jacket, successfully dressing down an otherwise dressed up look.

If you want to wear this look from day to drinks, switch up the denim jacket for a leather one, for instant fash credentials.

Stop press: we’re into print. This season we’re rekindling our love of printed fabrics, thanks to the embroidery trend. If you want to werk it without buying into boots, why not make like Alena and go for an embroidered jacket which will subtly make sure you’re nodding to the trend. To complement the oriental design, highlight the wine colour and pair with bordeaux red boots to make sure your whole outfit’s looking flames.

If you’re after print in another way, then pair these red boots with skinny jeans and a printed boho blouse.

Black Heel Bae

This time we’re updating classic barely there block heels with a seasonal velvet fabric. Featuring a chunky heel and a thick ankle strap, these heels are deceptively comfy and are perfect all day options if you want to stay sassy from desk to drinks. If you want to know how to wear red shoes to work, then take a leaf out of Joya’s book and pair with classic workwear like wide leg trousers and a white blouse.

Heading out when you clock off? Add some fishnet socks and a leather biker jacket, and swap your coffee for a cocktail.

Can’t quite wave goodbye to your black? Style up your favourite wardrobe staples with red for a look that’s got PD Bae written all over it. Keep the statement simple by colourblocking just the two colours for an easy way to wear the trend.

Tap into another trend the simple way and wear a western inspired belt to keep things fresh.

Simply Red

Even if you can’t get your mitts on the real deal, Chanel has definitely helped us to remember a classic way of how to wear red: with a statement bag. Lana has her steeze down to a fine art, and mixes khaki with red like a pro.

Style your red accessories with a pair of clear boots. Perspex is a failsafe option for any colour-focussed outfit, as the transparent fabric will be sure to werk just as hard as you do.
