Red Leather Handbags and Red Leather Purses

Summer fashion on the catwalks has been all about the Scarlet Woman and these shades of red will intensify throughout Autumn in the run up to Winter. Warm tones have been hot colours for several years. If you’re not afraid of fashion, layer up your outfits with a blend of reds in varying tones; think Nancy Dell’Olio and use ‘The Lady in Red’ as your mantra. The trick is to be bold and juxtapose bright block colours like hot orange, tangerine, coral and tomato red, against fuchsia pink and magenta. If this all sounds too scary, either select a shift dress in a block colour or make your handbag do the job for you. Red leather handbags are the perfect accessory to brighten up an LBD (little black dress) or grey work suit.

It’s Red Alert for lips, too as colours go very full-bodied with delicious sounding names such as ‘cherry-soda’ and ‘ageing cabernet’. If loud and louche is your style, you’ll love the flaming Madonna reds of the 80s. For the dark and sultry vibe, opt for Missoni’s interpretation of ‘rouge noir’. For the lacquered finish, plump for a lipstick with uber-gloss; lips which look like they’ve been painted with nail polish are one of the hottest trends.

  1. “ I really appreciated the swift delivery of the lovely Sienna Rose Wine and Dark Brown Shoulder Bag (6572). It arrived well packed and I am completely pleased with it. The leather has the silky feel described, it isn’t too cumbersome but has plenty of room for purse, phone, satnav, cheque book, keys, folded shopping carrier bag and some make up. The colours are mellow but strong and the lining is more durable than I had imagined. It looks robust but stylish, the reddish wine/dark tan colour matching the leather of my sandals and the brown straps will match all things brown. The only criticism is that the leather loops (toggles) which hold the straps in place slide around a bit but that is a minor thing." Barbara, Taunton, Somerset.
