Spring has long had a love affair with neon and pastel shades that speak to the warmer weather, in a soft, complementary tone. But we think it’s about time you meet its new mistress. Popping up all over the S/S 2012 runways, red has come on the scene and is causing quite a stir. From bold eyewear options to come-hither kitten heels, all instantly upgraded by their crimson coat. And of course there are ways to carry the trend along to the little things. A great red manicure could add a finishing touch; as could switching your spring fragrance to Creed’s Original Santal—the red flacon will ensure your vanity’s equally well-decorated for the coming months.
