The color red ruled the runways for fall 2023 so get ready to see it everywhere! We choose the “red all over” trend as one of our top fall 2023 fashion trends for women over 50. Designers showed red in their collections from head-to-toe at LaPointe, Balmain and Ferragamo and we are here for it! But many others showed separates or accessories in this hot color. If you add one new color to your wardrobe for fall, make it red!

The Red Fashion Trend for Fall 2023

Red is such a vibrant color, and you can find a shade that works best with your skin tone, or simply wear a shade that you like the best. Some reds have more orange in them, some have a bit of violet in them, and some have deeper shades.

Red is not your typical fall color, but it certainly packs a punch! The color is bold and powerful so you won’t be missed when you wear red. This season you can wear this exuberant color from head-to-toe, as a top or a bottom, or if that is too much for you, why not add a red accessory to your next fall outfit?

This suit by Argent at Nordstrom is totally on trend. The one button blazer, silk blouse and flare trousers ensemble is a perfect example of going head-to-toe with red for fall 2023. When you are wearing all red it’s best to wear nude, tan or neutral colored accessories (as shown in the look above). Or to really get the fall 2023 runway look you can wear red shoes or boots. Another red suit option is a skirt and jacket. Here are more red suits to shop.

See the girl with the red dress on? ‘What I’d say’ is she can’t be missed. However, don’t be afraid to wear a bright red dress. It may be easier to wear than you think and could be a welcome change to your wardrobe. Find an easy to wear style like this Ann Taylor pleated shirtdress. Wear it with neutral or try metallic gold, silver or pewter accessories. Or go bold with a pair of complimentary green shoes as shown at Ferragamo (at the top of this post). If you have a cocktail or formal occasion to attend this fall, go with a red gown or jumpsuit instead of the usual black. See more options to shop below.
