Red, as in tomato soup, is this season’s hottest shade. Universally flattering (and far more grown up than Barbie pink), bold red gives classic, tailored pieces an element of excitement and breathes new life into basics. The standout among the AW23 collections was The Row’s collarless red coat and matching opera-length gloves (pictured above). If in doubt, invest in some separates and wear with neutrals like black, grey and camel.
