The craze for the color red that we have been observing for quite some time will continue in 2024… and this is not to displease us. Preview on the red carpetAcademy Museum Gala a week ago, the incendiary shade promises to be the star of next year.

Trouser suits, long dresses for women aged 60, ankle boots, accessories… Take a look at the top red pieces of the moment and how to wear them after your sixties.
Which red piece at 60 or over?
We agree, the most desirable color of 2024 has the power to accentuate the sexy side of its wearer. But is it easy to wear on a daily basis when you are 60 or over? Yes ! On the street or in the office, it has everything it takes to spruce up, or even rejuvenate, a look. To make it your own without making a Christmas ball, you have to learn to play with the materials. A red knitted sweater will not have the same look as a long faux leather skirt. Sixty-year-old fans of the total look must better mix the different tones of red. Orange, coral, burgundy, poppy, vermilion… you are spoiled for choice. As for the less daring, red accessories – scarf, hat, scarf, handbag – are perfect for livening up a winter outfit that is a little too basic.
What color to wear with red?
Contrary to popular belief, red is not difficult to combine. To avoid missing out, you can simply opt for black, gray, white, beige or navy blue. However, avoid green as it risks looking like a tree. For a color-block look, red pairs wonderfully with pink and electric blue.
What fashion piece in red?
Among all the pieces in the wardrobe of sixty-year-olds, red only invests in the most trendy ones! This winter 2023-2024, it will invade coats, long dresses, pantsuits, knitted cardigans, skirts and ankle boots. For office style, throw on a red knitted maxi dress with a black bomber jacket and a pair of matching statement boots. On the weekend, wear high-waisted straight jeans, sneakers and an incendiary knit sweater. Throw on a long winter coat, add an elegant brooch and that's it! This is what combines style and comfort on a daily basis. Moreover, if we have to define the ideal red piece for women aged 60 or over, it will undoubtedly be the long wool coat. It rejuvenates and allows you to gain style at the same time.
What about accessories?
To adopt it in small touches, red is featured on the accessories. So, to add a touch of color to your winter outfit, leather boots or a red handbag will do the trick perfectly. The most cautious sixties can opt for a scarf, a small thin belt or a piece of jewelry in this color to upgrade a black (and white) outfit. To look your best during the end-of-year celebrations, wear a vertical striped dress (an asset for lengthening your silhouette) and a pair of red pumps. Add some gold earrings and you're there!
