There is no doubt that red is one of the greatest colors of fall. But this year’s red is the shade we have been waiting for to help brighten up the cold weather. The shade is warm and vibrant, proving that fashion’s heart is strong and beats even in the cold.

Blood red shades hold a lethal fascination this season which can be seen in many head-to-toe scarlet trench coats, knits and leathers. By starting with staples as simple as your iPhone case, the Burberry embossed check card, or the Valentino scarf with lace, you can easily add a little shine to your day. If you want to go for a bolder look, we suggest the patterned Balmain silk-georgette blouse to go from work to a great dinner at Locanda Verde at Greenwich Village, or even drinks in Catch. And don’t forget the bag! The traditional Givenchy Antigona is what we have been longing for in our closets.

Check out DOWNTOWN’s choices of blood red to help brighten your fall!
