This Simple Styling Trick Loved By Celebrities Will Elevate Any Autumn Outfit

Over the past few weeks we've noticed celebrities have been forgoing classic black, brown and beige accessories in favour of one of the most talked about colours for the AW23 season—bright red. Bold it may seem, but the below A-lister outfits have convinced me, and my fellow Who What Wear editors, that red accessories may just be the easiest and chicest way to update our outfits for autumn. 

Sofia Richie, Margot Robbie, Hailey Bieber and Zoe Kravitz (a list that reads like the who's who of the most stylish celebrities right now) have all stepped out recently in really simple looks that have been instantly elevated by red accessories. That should be enough to persuade anyone of this trend's legitimacy, but with New York Fashion Week in full swing, we've also started to see red shoes and bags being worn by so many chic showgoers. Believe us when we say this about to be the hottest (fiery pun intended) look of the season.

To attend the Proenza Schouler SS24 New York Fashion Week runway show, Sofia Richie styled a strapless black and white dress with a no-fuss black clutch bag and minimal earrings. Livening up her style, Richie opted for a pointed toe slip-on ballet flat in a tomato red—perhaps the freshest way to wear the colour right now. 

This simple addition of the season's sharpest shade injected a playful element to Richie's look without compromising the elegant styling that she's become known for. 

Late last month, amid celebrations of the launch of Rhode's Strawberry Glaze Lip Treat, Hailey Bieber sported a range of thematic outfits that she accessorised with red bags and shoes. Styling up her little white dress, Bieber wore her red Manolo Blahnik mules, a red handbag and lick of red polish on her long nails. Altering her hair colour to the trending cowboy copper tone, Hailey piled on the red accents to elevate her stylish look.

Hailey Bieber styled a white dress with Manolo Blahnik buckled suede mules, £595.

Heading out to lunch in Beverly Hills over the weekend, Margot Robbie dressed up her simple tank top and denim shorts outfit with striking red platform heels from Chanel.

Throwing on an oversized shirt, Margot kept her other accessories relaxed and comfortable, letting her platform heels carry her look.

Margot Robbie styled red platform sandals from Chanel, £1,180.

The latest to style the red accessories trend is Zoe Kravitz, who last night was spotted in a white floor-length skirt, black cardigan and red ballet flats whilst out for dinner with besties Taylor Swift, Gigi Hadid and Blake Lively in New York. Ballet flats have emerged as a favourite of Zoe's (and many other cool-girl recently), so it totally makes sense that we're seeing plenty of these being worn in the bold red hue.

Whether you want to style red accessories like the celebrities with an otherwise monochrome look, or go all in and style red from head-to-toe (ch-ic), we've got you covered. Below, you'll find a round up of the best red accessories from designers and across the high street right now (yes, luckily this one's a trend we can all buy into!)
