Is Revolutionary Red the New Millennial Pink?

featured image

The soft shade of millennial pink inspired us and brought on a cultural shift last year, but there seems to be a new sheriff in town – revolutionary red. While millennial pink changed the way we perceive gender and was universally considered to be the color of youth and playful quirkiness, red has been around for a long time, and we’ve always associated it with power. Whether it’s in form of sexual energy, or as a statement of capable skillfulness, we always use it to make a statement.
Want to know how the trend appeared and how to get the hottest new look from the runways? We’re here for you.

Red For Revolution

This colour is here both as a response and as a form of extension to what millennial pink meant. We used pink to signify new directions in fashion, to break the boundaries of our preconceived notions of gender. Male celebrities like John Legend, Ashton Kutcher, Pharrell and Bruno Mars have been rocking pink and looking gorgeous in it, and we’re slowly letting go of the idea that pink is frilly and girly. Androgyny has been ruling the runways, but now we’re getting back to red, and the excitement that it brings.

From Hillary Clinton’s pantsuit, to Sofia Vergara’s array of bodycon dresses, red is the colour of feminine power, it’s the colour of rebellion and protests. From the TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, to designers like Max Mara, Fendi and Oscar de la Renta, red is used to signify something bold, something potent and dynamic.

Regardless of whether you care much for social politics or not, red is still the perfect colour for the fall of 2017. Want to be a stunning beauty? Then take a look at Rihanna’s gorgeous dress from the premiere of Valerian. If you want to turn heads, a red dress is the quickest way to do it. Pick a sexy, off-the-shoulder little dress for a date, or bring that vigor to your everyday work outfit by wearing a form-fitting, knee-length red dress, and throwing a black blazer over it.

Blouses are also a beautiful way to rock this trend, but if you want to be really bold, then go for a pair of over-the-knee boots. Kendall Jenner’s classy red turtleneck paired with bright red lipstick can also be a good inspiration for some everyday elegance and sophistication.

Accessorize Smartly

Accessories can go a very long way in making a statement, and wearing pretty little details like the ones you can find here can really bring that oomph to your entire outfit. A big leather handbag can provide the perfect contrast to a red dress, or you could wear something that’s all-black and then offset it with a few pieces of vivid red. Just imagine a black sweater and a neat pencil skirt, and then red nail polish, a red brooch and little square scarf tied around your neck. You’ve just turned something that was practically invisible into something chic and stylish.

Red also works beautifully with metallics, so strappy gold sandals or a thin silvery belt can give you that nice dose of glam.

Think Vintage

Red is modern now, yes, but it’s also timeless, and a fashion diva might wish to pay tribute to famous ladies from history who wore this color and made it so famously feminine. Take Marilyn Monroe’s famous dress from River of No Return if you want an inspiration for something jaw-droppingly sexy, or in case you want that refined, cultured fashion take Grace Kelly’s loveliness and elegance to really show the world your incredible style.

Wearing red is more than just following a trend. It’s not a color that can be worn by the meek, it’s something that grabs people’s attention and holds it. It represents the raw power of women, it enchants you and commands respect. So, be daring, and be confident. There’s no way you can’t look good in the perfect shade of revolutionary red.
