There is just something oh-so-summery and perfectly spicy about Fiesta Red. It’s a true, summery red with warmer orange undertones and a lot of fire.
Fiesta Red makes me feel muy caliente.
Cue that oh so annoying yet catchy and appropriate song…..Havana-na-na-na……
Pretty much every season we get a version of red in the “it” color palette. We have had Berry Red, Jester Red, Tigerlily, Valiant Poppy and this season has delivered us Fiesta Red.
Designers incorporated the picante shade in just about every way imaginable. At Gucci there were pops of fiery shade throughout the collection in everything from an oversized sleeve kimono inspired jacket to leather zip up undies and classic trench coats layered with peppery hued tights. Valentino showcased the hue in Little Red Riding hood-esc cape dresses and at Elie Saab an awe-inspiring one shoulder sleek, classic, goddess gown brought the perfect amount of heat to the runway.
The reason I have a serious color crush on this orangey red shade is that it looks great on EVERYONE and there are roughly a gazillion different ways to wear it.
You can go head-to-toe with this hot shade or try some easy pairings to pepper in the shade: Fiesta Red and Teal Blue delivers a cool southwest vibe, when paired with Cactus Green it hits on those so-on-trend western notes, Fiesta Red + Pink brings a sunset inspired palette or with Cobalt Blue for some tropical vibes. You can even incorporate it as an accent shade to pop in some color to a monochrome look with a bag or shoe.
