3 Hues You Probably Never Thought You Could Try With Red

3 Hues You Probably Never Thought You Could Try With Red

Flattering every skin tone, red is a must-have hue in every wardrobe. More often than not, the colours that you’re likely to team up with red are the staple blacks and whites. Nonetheless, there are other pairings with red that need to be explored. Just in case you’re trying to figure out which colour works best with red, well… hold on as we’ve got your back (again). WODROB’s made a list of 3 colours that work best with red. PS: We also have tips on how you can style these hues in your ensemble. Scroll on!

Red with grey

Not too bold and super easy to incorporate, red, when matched with grey, is an eye-catching combination. Grey’s cool tone makes red look even more vibrant. Play up your boring outfit in a red bodysuit paired with grey pants. Take a cue from the runway and strut in red heels as you don a structured grey dress to a formal event.

Red with plum

Remember when they told you two stark colours don’t go hand in hand? Presenting to you colour blocking… a great way to try the trend is by combining red and plum. We think the hues together make a fierce and stunning pair. Team up a pair of flared trousers in red with a gorgeous plum shirt. If that seems intimidating, work the combination by sporting either of the colours through your shoes, bags or even scarves.

Red with camel

Remember when everyone stated camel is the new black. Well, it’s true. And that’s exactly why you should be teaming up your reds with this hue. Camel is the perfect neutral hue that helps tone down red when it’s overtly bright. Throw on a camel coat over a red shirt or add a splash of red through accessories instead. Break the monotony of your camel top and outerwear with a pair of red trousers or maxi skirt. Either way, it is hard to go wrong with this pairing.
