Fuchsia was the quintessential colour of the ‘80’s. I wore so much of the colour back then it was frightening. Recently we saw fuchsia come back as a fashion colour along with other shades of pink and there is no stopping it for Spring 2009. Fuchsia is fast becoming the “it” colour this year.

My prediction is that the abundance of fuchsia will make red take a back seat. This upsets me a little because although I like fuchsia and wear the shade, I’m a tomato red girl at heart. It is not a replacement for red in my wardrobe. What do you think? Do you wear both shades, and are they interchangeable?

Fuchsia or red. Hmmm… I quite like the two shades together as above. They clash, but it works. That might be my answer to wearing fuchsia this season – the best of both worlds.
