Red or Alive
RED ALERT! This is not a drill. FW17 is bringin' it: Red is THE color, and head-to-toe's the rule. Banish boring winter days for good, with insanely-bold, color-blocked looks that'll amp up your day and make you feel like a BOSS. This dramatic look is the perfect shot of sass to get your fall started. Ready?...
Sweater dress $20, thigh-high boots $32,
Prepare to make an impact with plenty of rich red. While it's still warm, pair sweater dresses with ankle boots and bare legs for an oh-so-chic alternative to #AllBlackEverything.
Tiered-sleeve dress $14, ankle boots $X
As fall goes forward, layer up: blazers are key for FW17. Whether it's double-breasted, waterfall front, or military inspired, just make sure you grab one while they're still around. Padded coats and puffer jackets are also key, great for the chica with a more chilled look.
Padded jacket $35, mini backpack $12, vinyl pants
Double-breasted blazer $29, pants $18, bell-sleeved coat
Texture plays an important role in propelling this trend beyond a color focus. For best results, contrast unexpected fabrics like high-shine vinyls and matte faux suede, or sheer chiffon with chunky knitwear.
And the fun doesn't stop with clothes: our shoes are also dipping their toes in the red trend. Epic thigh-high boots for the brave, sock boot sneakers for the athleisure baes, and mod boots for chicas with retro feels.
