Shades of red for fall 2011

Move over honeysuckle, there is a new hue in town!

When designers sent their fall collections down the Milan, Paris, New York and London runways earlier this year, the fashion world was seeing red; literally. Red came in many shades and forms on the fall runways. There were red coats, dresses, shoes, handbags and anything that could have a color, did, and it was red. Red was shown in various shades ranging from bright red down to deep burgundy. Red was shown alone as well as color blocked with black; a throwback to the 1980’s.

Red is a color that seems to flow in and out of style every year; making it an easy way to invest in an item that is not only on-trend but classic! Fabulous!

What is our favorite red investment item for fall? The burgundy handbag. We here at Bay Area Fashionista love the deep, rich tones of burgundy and her warmer sister maroon. The shade can easily be worn with cool color tones and is an understated pop when paired with black. Burgundy is also an autumn classic which allows it to be the perfect investment color for fall. Happy shopping, and stay fabulous.
