Style session: How to wear red
This season it’s considered ultra chic to go bright red. So bring on the scarlet fever and stock up your wardrobe with every shade of red you could possibly imagine, courtesy of centre:mk

There’s only one colour that should be hot on your radar this season, and that’s red, red, red. From traffic-stopping chilli to rich rubies and sumptuous merlots, there really is a shade for everyone at centre:mk.


The catwalks paraded top-to-toe crimson, a look reserved for the stylishly-brave but surprisingly wearable if you know how. It’s about getting noticed for all the right reasons. Here’s how: 

  • To pull off an all-red ensemble, like a dress or top and culottes combo, just add a killer, colour coordinated accessory, whether that be a killer red boot or a quilted shoulder bag.
  • Buddy scarlet reds with bright pinks to step up your style know-how and create a full-on fashion clash. Too much? Reverse this rule out by introducing tonal burgundy separates and transform your look into an all-round palatable class act.
  • Texture is key to nailing a luxe look so be sure to mix it up with chunky knits, woollen weaves, faux fur, leather and suede all in the colour du jour.
  • If the thought of these fiery tones leaves you a little flustered, dip your toe into the trend with a vermillion red manicure and pedicure. Or simplify it still with a statement red lipstick. We’re a little bit in love with the fashion crew’s favourite by Charlotte Tilbury – creamy, luxurious and a perfect hit of the hue. Just make it matte for a modern look.
