There’s a reason why people love red lipstick: it’s bold enough to change your entire look and, if you find the right shade, it suits everyone. The same goes for red accessories. Consider them your new best friend if you want to add drama (or even a touch of romance) to your outfit.

Red accessories add a kick of colour to monochrome outfits

It’s a divisive combination, but red and black, when paired in the right way, pack a powerful punch. If you wear a cherry-coloured bag with a dark outfit, you’ll instantly bring personality to your look by using a flash of rouge to break up those monochrome hues. If you're into moody tones, make merlot your new go-to colour (even if it isn’t your preferred tipple). Our edit of accessories in red includes pieces in dark shades, which are ideal for cold weather dressing and will look great when teamed with your favourite leather jacket.

Smarten up your lazy Sunday look with red accessories

Denim is a weekend wardrobe staple, but it can be tricky to style when you want it to take you from day to night. Remember what we said earlier about red lipstick making you look infinitely more glamorous? The same goes for the amount of impact a simple red accessory can have. Turn casual jeans into unlikely evening wear hero pieces by pairing them with a red top, then pull the outfit together with coordinating jewellery or a smart belt. Pop on your dancing shoes of choice and you’ll be ready to go. These accessories in red can give the most pedestrian of looks an elegant imprint. Well, people do say the best things come in small packages.
