CATWALK TREND DECODED
Why tonal dressing is priority no.1 this season
By Lucy Glen, 9 May 2017
Need a mood-enhancing alternative to monochrome this winter? The bright, bold and oh-so office-worthy red suit could be the tonic you need. Max Mara led the way on the AW17 catwalk, ASOS cover girl Yara Shahidi rocked head-to-toe rouge on the FROW at Chanel, and see how you can get involved…
The Max Mara ready-to-wear 2017 collection was a working girls' 9-to-5 delight. Tonal tailoring in rich autumnal hues, but it was the red looks that stole the show. Power dressing never looked so fierce.
Actress and activist Yara Shahidi demonstrates that colour coding from top to bottom is no big thang. Last week, Yara attended the Chanel show looking like the original boss woman she truly is.
Try it on
Make this red, two-piece pant suit your work day companion, stat. Wear with sneakers and white tee for chill appeal, add a red turtleneck and heels for top tonal points or partner the blazer with jeans for weekend brunch dates. So much potential!
