Forget black, this season is all about red. Scarlett shades dominated the AW14 catwalks, and now this bold shade has hit the high street. See all the best of what's on offer, here...
Red has long been a firm favourite for glamorous dressing, but this season this classic hue has had a makeover and is now a part of our everyday wardrobes coming in leather, knitwear, outerwear and even trainers. In summary, if you buy one thing for your new autumn wardrobe – let it be something red.
Scarlett styles swept the catwalk at Simone Rocha, Christian Dior and Jonathan Saunders, all in pretty prints, smart tailoring and stylish eveningwear. On the high street, all the big brands took on the crimzon shades, cleverly working cashmere jumpers and winter dresses into their collection. Or for just a hint of colour, try a fluffy key chain from Shrimps or a pair of trophy trainers from Nike.
