Red is surely having its moment in the fashion realm. There’s no denying that the colour that is in vogue for 2024 is red. While yellow, lilac and millennial pink had their star moments in the previous years, this time the bold hue has been revived – and we are all for it. On and off the runway, the colour has been sported by fashion enthusiasts and celebrities alike, while some choose to add the colour to accessories, others opt to go bold. Yet some even opt for red footwear, and this is the hottest trend for fashion mavericks.

While the trend first appeared on the fall 2023 runways, spring 2024 saw the colour only gain traction. Red might be a colour that many stay away from, and perhaps it has a negative connotation attached to it of being too bold a colour. And others may just be daring enough to paint the town red during Christmas. But the trends for this season urge you to rethink the shade. Because this year it’s back with vengeance for both men and women. The recently concluded Golden Globes 2024 red carpet points in that direction with Selena Gomez, Florence Pugh and Barry Keoghan being some of the celebrities who nailed the trend.

Adding a pop of colour to your outfit is a foolproof way to take any look to the next level. However, if head-to-toe red isn’t for you, one of the easiest ways to wear it is via your accessories. If you wish to be experimental but aren’t ready to dive into a head-to-sea sea of red, red footwear is more versatile than you would think and a less intimidating way to add red to your wardrobe as opposed to a red trench or a sweater.

Love at first wear. If it isn’t the Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps in red, the guide on red footwear would be incomplete. Because these aren’t your average pointed-toe heels. The look stands out yet still versatile enough to wear with anything in your wardrobe, from jeans and a white T-shirt to a long black dress.

How to style the trend
When it comes to red shoes style a slick pair of pumps with straight-leg denim and an oversized men’s cashmere knit for a cosy but fashion editor-cool take on party dressing. When opting for boots, stockings, a trend coat and a black dress will do the trick. Embrace the preppy fashion trend as you pick the ultimate red shoes, Mary Janes teamed with a pleated skirt, a layered pool and shin-high socks. If flats are more your thing, red can make even the comfiest of shoes feel a little bit more polished. Wear with black ski pants and a puffer jacket with red chunky sneakers for a street-style look.
