The spring and summer may have been all about Barbiecore pink, but red is set to be the color of the coming season, thanks to top designers like Tory Burch, Prada and Fendi all sending full looks in the fiery hue down their fall/winter 2023 runways. A-list celebs such as Kate Middleton and Jennifer Lopez have already jumped on the trend and have been incorporating the bold shade in their wardrobes and we’re here to show you how you can too!

A full head-to-toe crimson look will certainly turn heads, but if you're not ready to fully commit to the trend yet, start out small. Try swapping out your usual black or gray trousers for a bright red option, consider a striking garnet sweater instead of a classic neutral shade or for a subtle pop of color, opt for a bag or pair of shoes in the color. To help you get a head start on the trend, we rounded up 10 red hot pieces that will look great in any fall wardrobe.

This sleek and silky midi skirt is super easy to dress up or down. Wear it with a graphic tee and sneakers or go for a more elegant look with a sweater and heels. Shoppers say the foldover elastic waistband is super comfortable and the flowy fabric is very flattering on.

To gently test the waters with this bold color, try a fun accessory like these tassel earrings. Despite being three tiers long, they are very lightweight and won’t pull your lobes down. And at $9 a pair, they are an affordable way to try out the trend.

These ankle-length pants are made with a bi-stretch cotton fabric and have a sleek look. Their slip-on silhouette and smoothing belly panel makes them both comfortable and flattering. Even better, their inclusive sizing ranges from XS to 2XL with regular, petite and tall options.
