Color codes for the fall typically fall under dark, mysterious and gloomy. Breaking out of the ordinary, this season's color codes are taken a giant leap of faith into the brighter side of things with the breakout color of the season: crimson.
Under the liveliest shades of reds, crimson made an unmistakable presence on the fall runways for Dolce & Gabbana, Naeem Khan, Bottega Venetta, Giambattista Valli and Christian Dior. No longer limited to the lipstick of choice, the color can now be seen on fall staples such as sweaters, boots, and briefcases. Here are a few crimson picks that are so criminally good, they'll have you seeing red.
