Red looks good on everyone. It’s why red is one of the best-selling lipstick shades and why you’ll see red clothes on sale every season. A pop of red helps to balance any outfit, whether you’re a fan of the classic ‘90s Rachel Green fashion trends or have an indie aesthetic.

We’re sharing our favorite pop of red styling tips, teaching you how to incorporate red clothes into your everyday closet.
What is a Pop of Red?
The pop of red aesthetic is exactly what it says on the tin. It’s a styling trend that focuses on adding red clothes or accessories to outfits in subtle or unexpected ways. Pop of red outfits are the perfect way to start experimenting with adding more color to your closet or trying viral aesthetics.
Red is a color that symbolizes action, strength, energy, and passion, with several cultures using it to represent good luck and courage. Wearing red clothes is believed to help boost your motivation levels and draw attention as it radiates a confident energy.
A pop of red can add a seductive but feminine feel, giving you an instant confidence boost. Red is a color to reach for when you want to be the center of attention.
The pop of red aesthetic is a trick used by stylists, adding one piece of red clothing or an accessory to elevate an outfit. You can go all out with a red satin mini dress or go quirky with a cute cherry hair claw.
Celebrities and The Pop of Red Aesthetic
Are you looking for styling inspiration for pop of red outfits? Look no further than your favorite celebrities. While some celebrities like Taylor Swift have made red one of their signature colors, other A-listers have mastered the art of the pop of red aesthetic in subtler ways.

How to Wear Pop of Red Outfits
Red might feel like a scary color at first. The color naturally draws our attention, which is red clothes are popular for special occasions. Pop of red outfits are an easy way to start embracing the color without making it the center of attention.
We’re sharing our favorite ways to incorporate the pop of red aesthetic into your everyday closet.
1. Easy styling: One pop of red accent
Pop of red outfits don’t have to break the bank. The easiest way to try this trend is with one red accent in your outfit. Start simple with subtle accessories like ribbons and tights before working up to statement pieces like footwear and clothing.
We’ve rounded up the accessories and red clothes that will add a subtle pop to any look.
a. Red ribbon
Channel your favorite vintage style icon with a ribbon in your hair.
Our hair clips add a pop of red without the fuss of tying your own bow.
You can style a red ribbon in hair of any length, whether you have a short bob or Rapunzel-length hair. Clip it into the top of a ponytail or add to the end of a classic fish braid.
b. Red tights
Swap out your classic black or nude tights for a wine-color pair to add a pop of red to your outfit. Our Heart Mesh Tights are lightweight for year-round styling, making them a coquette aesthetic staple.
Red tights add warmth to your outfit, brightening your complexion without distracting from the rest of your outfit.
c. Red footwear
Put your best foot forward with a pop of red. Whether you need a lucky charm or want to shake up your shoe closet, red footwear can elevate a minimalistic outfit or balance out darker colors.
Mary Janes are one of the biggest footwear trends for 2024 as a wearable alternative to heels and stilettoes. Our red vegan leather Mary Jane sandals are an everyday shoe that are as comfortable as a sneaker. The vintage-inspired silhouette is a feminine fashion staple you can style with everything from shorts to dresses and miniskirts.
d. Red sweater as outerwear
Although red clothes work for every season, we often associate a pop of red with the holidays. You can add the pop of red aesthetic to your winter closet by styling a red sweater as outerwear. It’s perfect for transitional weather when it’s too hot for a coat but cold enough for extra layers.
Our Vintage Red Hearts Sweater has an oversized fit for easy layering. Style it over a blouse with a Peter Pan collar or pop it over your favorite dress to create the illusion of a two-piece look.
e. Red skirt or trousers
Once you’re comfortable wearing a pop of red, add individual pieces of red clothing.
Red skirts and trousers are easy to style with neutral shades. You can wear them with a white T-shirt or a black sweater for fuss-free outfits.
2. Elevated Styling: Red Clothes with Different Hues
When you’ve mastered wearing red clothes, it’s time to start elevating your style.
Monochromatic outfits are effortlessly chic. This fashion trend builds an outfit around different shades of the same color. While it can take a little trial and error, red is one of the best colors for monochromatic styling.
The popularity of cords and matching sets has made monochromatic outfits a mainstream trend you’ll find in every aesthetic. Choose red clothes that have a subtle change in tone, sticking to either warm or cool shades. Incorporating a print, like our cozy up plaid pants, can add contrast to your outfit.
