There was one unanimous winner amongst the trends showcased in the A/W 23 runway shows in February this year. Not a new style of coat or a reimagined silhouette—the season’s hottest trend is a classic colour that's back with a vengeance: fiery red. Setting the runways ablaze at Gucci, Valentino and Eudon Choi, some of our favourite designers set the scene for a season of passionate, rich and incandescent dressing.
Having witnessed the ballet-flat trend dominate throughout the summer months and continue to grow into autumn, it was only a matter of time until the season's favourite shoe style joined forces with its hottest colour to give us the only shoes we're interested in wearing right now.
Who What Wear UK affiliate editor Emily Dawes styled red ballet flats with a tonal bag and knit.
When paired with other red pieces, red ballet flats bring a look to life with a vibrant, elevated effect that requires no extra effort. Equally as chic when styled with jeans and a tee, these shoes add a playful and polished edge in one go.
