The summer months are fading away, and Redhead Season is almost upon us. The imminent change in season means a shift in your wardrobe.Sandals are replaced with ankle-high booties and cozy, chunky sweaters are brought back out to play. And, lucky you, Redhead Season is the ultimate time to embrace the season’s most resplendent hues.

Redheads: The Colors You Should Be Wearing 

Here are 5 favorite, must-wear colors to rock this season with your red hair:

1. Maroon: 

This is a great color if you love purple and red. You’ll contrast the fall leaves beautifully. Opt for a subtle lip color and dark eyeliner.

2. Red:

Afraid to wear red with your red hair? We’re here to tell you to step out of our comfort zone (why not?!) and try rockin’ a rich red or rust red dress, jacket or sweater with a pop of color on your lips. You’ll be turning heads all day long.
