The unofficially crowned shade of this season is a deep, vampy cherry red. With 2023 being the year of the ressurgence of several ‘90s and Y2K trends, it’s quite unsurprising that this retro shade has made a comeback.
The colour came back on the radars of style enthusiasts after it was spotted on the runway of Gucci’s recent Milan Fashion Week showcase.
