Trends 2012: Red

Fifty shades of... no, I'm not going to talk about the novel (Fifty shades of grey) by E. L. James that, this year, has sold millions of copies, but one of the colors that, also is one of the coolest trends for f/w 2012-13. I'm talking about red. From clothes to make up, it's a true must of season. This year we'll find it in so many shades: from  fire  to cherry red to burgundy, we are spoiled for choice!

In past seasons red enchanted, for example, the collections f/w 2009-10 by brands like Christian Dior, Prada and Fendi that proposed the color on everything, from clothes to accessories.

I love red! It's able, like few other colors, to give a sensual effect to clothes and accessories, being at the same time classy and sophisticated. I think it also is able, just  thanks an accessory, to lively the most basic outfits. And then there are so many glamour shades... I have to admit I'm not brave enough to wear a total red outfit, but I like to match it with other colors and prints. These are some examples of my favourite red outfits.
