Every fashion house in the world has a signature red ensemble, and fashionistas of the world are also getting in trend by styling their red belongings.

White is another versatile colour to mix and match outfits with. A great daytime look is a white summer dress and pumps paired with a red shoulder bag. Throw in a pair of oversized sunglasses and a wide brim hat, and you’re ready to paint the town red!
