Turn heads this Christmas party season with a blast of Santa's favourite colour. Associated with power, warmth and confidence, red reappears on the catwalk every autumn/winter and this year is no different.
Designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Tommy Hilfiger and Max Mara sent their models down the runway in various shades of red and the colour of passion has infiltrated the high street.
Check out retailers like Marks & Spencer, La Redoute, Dunnes Stores and Oasis for coats, dresses and jumpers. Add a splash of scarlet with your shoes, bag or scarf.
But to avoid the pillar box look, steer clear of wearing red from head to toe.
And for a final nod to this Christmas colour, complete your outfit with a slick of red lipstick.
