You've got to be dead, red

As the citizens of the Emerald City sang in the Wiz:

I wouldn't be seen green
Ooo! Oo! Oo! Ah! Ah!
I wouldn't be caught dead
And if I'm caught at all
Then catch me in dead, red

You've got to be dead red
You've got to be real hot
So throw away those green gems
And wear rubies on your yacht

You've got to be dead, red
You've got to have flash and flair
And if you're not seen red
Then you shouldn't be seen nowhere

Of course, all three colours Richard Prior's Wiz chooses are relatively of the moment - green, red and gold. But I would like to look at red right now. Seen at Celine, Saint Laurent, Valentino, Marios Schwab, Dolce & Gabbana, red is on fire. Plus, it looks great as an accent with another major A/W 2013 colour, navy.

Some red already in stores now:

Jacquard trousers, ASOS

Metal trimmed cashmere coat, Burberry Prorsum at Net-a-Porter (or you could go for a much more affordable, but also lovely red coat from Cos)

Chiffon blouse, J Crew

Yumi peter pan collar dress, New Look

Matelasse clutch, Miu Miu at My Theresa

Jersey sweatshirt, Kenzo at Net-a-Porter
