Cardinal Rule: What To Wear With A Red Lip

We’ve been gushing over the high-impact red lips from the fall runways since February — so dramatic they’re basically an accessory in their own right. While it’d be easy to pull a page out of the Chanel handbook and pair the painted puckers with black or white looks, we’d much rather take this season’s key catwalk trend for a whirl. Enter: Bold red lips with equally bold hues.
From jewel tones to rich autumnal shades, designers were all about pairing the little red lip with a whole lotta color for a very on-trend, colorblocked theme. Follow their lead, please, but be sure to avoid any missteps with our mini-guide. Ahead, eight standout rouge lipsticks matched with eight runway outfits…here's to stopping traffic.
