Add red to your business capsule wardrobe

Neutral colours belong in any capsule wardrobe. But it’s a bold red dress that will add
greater corporate impact and gravitas to your business capsule wardrobe.

You can also add red with your accessories but for executive presence, a one-piece bold red
dress is the ultimate power colour.

And red is the colour of the moment – it’s the season’s hottest hue. The Duchess of Cambridge
looked sensational in her red dress at this year’s Wimbledon.

Here are our favourite six red dresses this Summer season. And each one oozes executive style
taking you from desk-to-dinner with ease.

If you are worried about wearing red, trust me: every woman can wear red. It’s knowing which
one is the ‘correct red’ for your skin undertone so that you wear the colour, and it doesn’t
dominate you.

CWC style tip:
If you have a warm skin undertone, think of strawberries. And yellow-based reds.
If you have a cool skin undertone, think of raspberries. And blue-based reds.
If you have a neutral skin undertone, you can wear any red.
Most skin undertones will suit True reds which have a balance of yellow and blue bases.

How to tell which skin undertone you have?
A warm skin undertone: it will be golden and peachy. You may have freckles and gold flecks in your eyes.
A cool skin undertone: it will be more pink or bluish; you’re unlikely to have freckles.
A neutral skin undertone: it will be neither warm or cool, but a mix.
