Celebs never shy away from making a statement on the red carpet, and the latest fad to take over Hollywood is a surprising one. The A-list are choosing frocks in fiery red and pink, an unexpected but chic duo.
“Pairing contrasting colors used to be a fashion faux pas,” Stitch Fix Stylist Layne Cross tells Us. But breaking those old school rules is now the norm, and anyone can do it. “When I am styling my clients, I always want to make sure the trend stays elevated in the same way the celebs wear it. So I tend to opt for pieces like a satin midi skirt and pair it with a cozy pullover during this time of year. In the summer, I might send my clients a breezy blush dress and suggest wearing it with a cherry red sandal,” Cross says.
While some stars go for over-the-top ensembles, like Billy Porter’s beaded Celestino Couture number (created using recycled curtain material from the Broadway show Kinky Boots!), others choose more wearable pieces you can actually buy. Jessie J picked a sleek wool-crepe $1,165 Roland Mouret one-shoulder jumpsuit, available online here; and Kate Siegel selected a tailored Elliatt dress, which retails for only $230 here.
