Pantone have released a brand-new colour to add to their ever-growing palette. Named “Period,” it’s a new shade of a deep red described as an “active and adventurous red hue” as part of a campaign alongside Swedish feminine product brand Intimina, to end the stigma and shame directed toward menstruation.
Here at Fashion North, we also believe in the empowerment of females and normalizing conversations around and about periods, so we’ve compiled a selection of products to buy and wear in our new favourite shade.
YSL’s Rogue Pur Couture Lipstick SPF15 from Look Fantastic, is perfect for making that bold statement. Priced at £30, it ‘s on the more high-end expensive scale. But you pay for the quality, and when it comes to a red lip, it’s better to pay more for that lasting finish. When it comes to nails, O.P.I’s Unrepentantly Red Infinite Shine is incredibly eye-catching and at £15.50 you really can’t go wrong.
Everyone needs a statementss red dress in their wardrobe. This AX Paris lace pencil dress from ASOS, is now reduced to £28. However, if your style is a bit braver, these Red Snake Vinyl Zip Front Trousers from Pretty Little Thing, priced at £20 are sure to give your look an edge.
Finally, even a plain outfit can be taken up a notch with a vivid red accessory. This Kurt Geiger Croc Mini Kensington bag priced at £159 could be teamed with an LBD for a romantic date night look. Or for a cosy winter stroll, this Diamond Weave Shawl from Phase Eight at £22.50 would complete any outfit.
