Neiman Marcus Sees Red for Fall/Winter 2017

Shades like Scarlet, Crimson and Cherry are heating up this season's palette...

Dare to dress in Lafayette 148 shades of red from head to toe. Pull it all together at Neiman Marcus Short Hills.

If you’ve been reading fashion articles in your favorite magazines, and especially trend reports from Neiman Marcus, you already know that RED is the it-color right now. Outfit yourself from head to toe by boldly mixing hues of bright scarlet with rich burgundy and deep peony. Layer them on as you infuse eye-popping crimson tones into your wardrobe this fall and winter.

I’ve included several stunning NM looks here including chic Lafayette 148 separates, a fun Elixir bootie and one of my favorites: Prada’s Trompe L’oeil Buckle Bag in a perfectly divine shade of cherry.  It’s a $4,200 splurge that packs a pretty punch, especially when paired with other must-have trends like velvet, leopard prints, leather jackets and booties.

This drool-worthy color will add pizazz to your entire wardrobe whether you’re heading to a casual tailgate party, dressing for a business meeting or enjoying a night on the town.

Just this week, Benjamin Moore’s announcement of their Color of the Year landed on my desk. Can you guess their top pick?  It’s spicy Caliente Red.  I remember, years ago, reading an article in Architectural Digest that suggested every home should welcome a pop of red to stimulate the senses. Of course, I immediately painted my entry hall in an unexpected shade of tomato and loved the happy result.

Now is the time to freshen your wardrobe, as well as your living spaces, with just the right amount of this super-hot hue.
