For Autumn/Winter 2010 there are any number of ways to interpret this scarlet sensation trend. Add a red hot pop of colour with an accessory, warm up your work wear with a simple red jersey dress or go all out head-to-toe red for evening – a look perfect for the forthcoming party season.
Here at Upper Street we have two red rules of our own! We love a slick of classic red lipstick to add glamour to any look and of course, we’re die hard fans of that most covetable hue for shoes – the infamous red shoes.
As children, they were a symbol of magic; the pair from the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, The Red Shoes, in which the peasant girl was forced to dance forever or the sparkling heels that Dorothy clicked together three times to return home to Kansas from Oz.
As grown women we know that a flash of scorching footwear can turn the simplest of looks into a red carpet worthy moment and at Upper Street, the possibilities for this glamourous shade are endless….
For day, these pointed court shoes with a contrasting red leather and patent brogue detailing would instantly add warmth and brighten up your office tailoring.
Our sumptuous and bespoke red suede and a delicate ankle strap add extra glamour to a shoe that would work as well with a full length red dress as it would with jeans.
For a touch of drama and elegance, add some red leopard to a Scarlet Italian satin weave front strappy sandal.
If you’re already planning your Christmas party outfit, there’s still time to design a pair of gorgeous red Upper Street heels to complete your look.
