This Street Style Star Proves Redheads Can Wear Every Colour

Those with red hair colour will be pleased to know that it's one of the bold hues of choice for S/S 18. But did you also know that it's the most flattering colour for every skin tone? What we're saying is that there's clearly a lot to celebrate in terms of fashion when you've got ginger or strawberry-blonde hair. In fact, we'd go so far to say that it's the most versatile when it comes to dressing. So if you're a redhead who feels constricted to a certain colour palette, think again: After much research, we can confirm that those boring, old parameters need to be reset.

Street style star and fashion editor Taylor Tomasi Hill illustrates this point extremely well. A favourite to be snapped during fashion week, Tomasi Hill has run the gamut of different outfit colours, but she has some clear favourites that make her hair stand out. From a whole host of greens to a reliable shade of navy as well as a more controversial shade, we've found the five best hues that suit red hair. Keep scrolling to see what they are and shop key pieces.

Style Notes: Obviously this is a given for any fashion girl's wardrobe. But on redheads, black really pops—no gothy vibes to be found. And there's no need for accessories—your striking 'do does all the work for you.

#2: All kinds of green

Style Notes: Emerald has been a classic go-to for those blessed with auburn hair, but Tomasi Hill proves that any shade of green is worth wearing. You can even mix up a lime with a jade in the same outfit—it'll totally work.

#3: Deep blue

Style Notes: This is the easiest of all the colours to wear, most notably because jeans are in everyone's wardrobe. Make sure you keep it interesting by trying different cuts of denim and finding interesting details in tops.

#4: White and neutrals

Style Notes: If you're a redhead on the paler end of the spectrum, you might think wearing white and other light neutrals would wash you out, but not so. We find that white looks quite stylish and interesting on redheads, with the hair providing the injection of colour.

#5: Yellow

Style Notes: Thanks to Emma Stone in La La Land making the yellow dress trend a thing, this colour is officially back as one of the best hues for red hair. From mustard to lemon, try every shade on the spectrum and add a red lip for the added wow factor.
