Celebrity Style Steal: Rita Ora’s Red Look

Rita Ora’s proved her music ability and now she’s testing her fashion credentials by taking over from Tyra Banks on America’s Next Top Model. They’re big shoes to fill so she needs to make a bold, dramatic entrance. What better way to do that then with red?


When Rita does something, she does it properly and rather than being cautious about red she goes all out with a colour block red jumpsuit. This is a strong look and that reflects on her in a good way – it shows that she’s prepared to take risks and have some fun. Wearing something like this gives you confidence so even when you’re nervous about making an impression, a colour block look like red will give you more attitude.

Inspired by Rita, I’ve found a few different ways to go all out in red. One option is a jumpsuit like Rita’s like the Coast Raisa jumpsuit (above). Or why not try a maxi skirt? I love the V by Very pleated maxi skirt, which are almost as fabulous as the  V by Very smart chino trousers.


Now you’ll need some red tops to complete the colour block trend. The  V by Very lace insert jersey back blouse (above left) would go well with skirt or trousers, while you could wear the  V by Very jersey blazer (above right) with trousers for a look that shows you mean business.

Want a more smart casual alternative? The V by Very rib detail boxy jumper (below ) is both comfortable and cool due to it’s flattering shape.


But if you’re more of a dress person then there a plenty of ways to go all out in a completely red dress that will make everyone’s head turn. You’ll have all eyes on you – for the right reasons – in the Little Mistress embellished maxi dress with its fantastic neckline (below left). Or if you’re really adventurous, check out the Rare textured mesh bardot dress, with it’s stunning side detail – it’ll blow people’s minds. For girls on the go, the V by Very high neck ruffle dress will see you from day to night and you’ll be at the heart of the 60s trend.


Are you ready for red?
