Is it just us, or is there suddenly a glut of cherry red brights hitting the high street? Today (because the forecast is for grey and gloom) we give you a round-up of our favourites.
Yesterday I spent the day running around town. Yes, I had meetings and work, but I also need a shot of the shops. I love my neck of the woods and God bless the glories of the internet, but let’s face it, sometimes a girl needs to lay your hands on the real deal. (This girl also needs a Leon and Liberty fix – the latter is where I spied the crazily gorgeous Helena Christensen looking all honey-skinned and lithe and chic-de-chic.) And something funny came over me: I kept being drawn to the brightest cherry red – like the Zara coat (above, £99.99.I cannot lie: I really, really hanker after this….) and the fabulous M&S wide-leg trousers. I also saw this Hush jumpsuit – which looks so classy I think even Helena C would be tempted.
P.S. I’d pair these with denim, navy, a crisp white shirt – or go for a serious colour clash with hot tropical pink.
