3 Beginner Friendly Ways To Style Red

It’s the beginning of the year, you see red, mandarin oranges start to be sold in boxes - Chinese New Year is round the corner! What other colour is more representative of Chinese New Year than red! Due to its vibrance, the colour red is traditionally believed to be able to ward off inauspicious energy. But fast forward to today, red isn’t commonly seen in streetwear. It’s for good reasons: too loud, difficult and intimidating to pull off. But fret not! Styling red clothing is easier than it seems. Here are three ways you can style red coloured clothing. 

 1. Wear accessories that red coloured accessories

This is the easiest way to incorporate red into your Chinese New Year fit. Nearly all accessories can be found in red. Also since red is a bright colour, wearing red in your accessories can provide a beautiful pop of colour regardless of the top and bottom you wear. For those who are still a little shy, you can opt for this style of incorporating red as accessories do not take up too much real estate in your fit. Here are some styles and designs of accessories you can try.

 2. Tops With Red Accents & Designs

A step up from red accessories, this way of styling red is for those who are a little more willing to stand out from the crowd. Red designs for tops come in many varieties: red illustrations for graphic tees, red coloured trim or even plain red coloured tees.

When wearing anything red for a top, the tried true pairing for bottoms is denim. With the right denim skirt, shorts or jeans, your Chinese New Year fit will be really put together (even if you really had no idea the night before).

Additional tip: Wear red coloured accessories with your red tops! Matching accessory colours to your fit colours is the simplest way to up your fit game. Plus, you really just have Chinese New Year once a year. Might as well go all the way!

 

  1. Wear All Red

Truthfully, talking about going all the way, there is a last way of styling red. It’s to wear all red. Red top, red bottoms. A matching set of graphic tee and joggers can be real sweet.

If you’re looking to truly stand out, your accessories can be all red too. But if you’re worried it’s too much, jewellery can be styled with the usual silver or gold tones. Other accessories such as headwear, socks and bags can be worn in white or black colour to create a break in the sea of red.
