How to Wear Red this Valentine's Day

Picture of India Doyle
Updated: 27 January 2017
The world may be waxing lyrical about the power of yellow in 2017, but for Valentine’s Day red will always win the day, especially when there’s such a wide range of styles to choose from. Culture Trip shows you how to wear red on any occasion.

For self-conscious clichés

If you’re a secret Valentines Day lover but don’t want to look overtly tragic on the day, Culture Trip suggests an understated embrace of red in the form of sweatshirts and loose fitting trousers. A jumper from Martine Rose – the former Fashion East star who made a tremendous comeback at London Fashion Week Men’s this season – will ensure ample fashion credit. Chloe’s embroidered trousers lend just enough romance while remaining a versatile piece to wear on other occasions.
