Fire tones: Cranking up the heat on this season’s colour crush

There’s a Scarlet Alert on all things colour this season with hyper-chromatic statement dressing making a bold comeback.

As seen on the recent runways from New York to Paris, fiery tones of scarlet and burnt orange are red hot right now – and clearly, consumers have a taste for this confident sartorial choice, as the trend has been spotted on the streets with some epic monotone colour blocking.

These hues create a classic party vibe and are perfect for summer’s silly season. Throw on some eye-catching accent pieces to add serious drama. For those looking to shake it up, consider pairing your fire tones with animal print (va va voom!), fuschia or purple (a royal flush) or pastel peach and lemon (feminine pop).

No matter how you do it, this trend is sure to set hearts racing. Now, go bold or go home.
