Red. Despite loving it to distraction, it’s the one colour we redheads just can’t wear – or not head to toe, anyway. Mind you, there’s not a lot of people who can get away with all over red, so this is one winter trend that’s best worn in splashes of colour, rather than as the basis for your winter wardrobe. Choose one or two signature pieces, like this Marc by Marc Jacobs silk crepe dress (£250 at Net-a-Porter), red box clutch bag (£20 at Dorothy Perkins) or these fabulous silk pumps by Steve Madden ($98.95 at Nordstrom).
Go for the cherry red of Warehouse’s empire line coat (£90) or the more orangy-red of Wallis’ 60’s-inspired number (£80). If you want to wear red, outerwear is a good way to do it: the colour will dress up almost anything you want to wear underneath it… (You’ll also look a bit like the little girl in Schindler’s List, but hey…)
