Colors make life more interesting. What a boring world it would be if everything was black and white! The fusion and incorporation of color in our lives make life pretty vibrant. We incorporate color in every aspect of life as much as possible. And one area where color plays a significant role is fashion.
You will have noticed that colors are a seasonal feature in fashion. While the bright greens, blues and yellows dominate the months of spring and summer, sober colors like blue, maroon and black rule the fashion scene in winter. However, you will always find that one color always stands out among the rest the whole year through. And while black has dominated this title for a while, the focus has started to shift to brighter colors.
We’re proud to announce to you that the color of the year goes to….. Any guesses? Well, it’s in the title, why wouldn’t you guess? Yes it’s RED and it’s the hottest color of 2012.
For the fiery passion, the youthful spark, the vibrant glory and the royal mood it sets, we have to give it to red for adding a fashionable touch to our hair, lips, nails, tops, blouses, trousers, jackets, bags, shoes and the list goes on.
Red popularized many fashionable items in 2012. So let’s take a good look at how red ruled in 2012.
1. Red Shoes
There was a time when we wore only black, white and brown shoes, however, the colorful revolution replaced this age old fashion with colorful vibrant shoes in all kinds of bright colors like red, blue, green, purple and pink. This transition is still pretty gradual among the fashionistas; however, women seem to have easily accepted red as the hottest new trend in footwear colors.
You have probably noticed a number of women ditch dull shoes and opt for bright red pumps, wedges, sandals and ballerinas. If you find red shoes too loud, you needn’t worry, everyone who wants to keep up with trends is wearing them and red shoes are not just a fleeting fad, it’s a trend that’s here to stay for quite a long time. So you better pile up on some red shoes pretty soon.
2. Red Handbags
If you are having a dull day where you have worn sober clothes, you can add a finishing touch to your look by picking up a red handbag. Take a look at yourself in the mirror and see what an absurdly large amount of difference the red handbag has made to your look.
