When I started working as a fashion stylist in the US, I learned a few interesting things around Christmas time. First, that people in America refer to the period between Thanksgiving and New Year as “the Holidays”. This was so new to me! Second, that many men, women and children wear more red at this time of year than any other. In fact, some of my clients wear red during the Holidays, but not during the rest of the year.

I do think of red as a festive Christmas colour, but I’m on Team Red and wear just as much of the colour during the rest of the year as I do during the Holidays (and so do our doggies Rosie and Jasmine, who have had red collars, leads, harnesses and jumpers at one time or another).

Do you wear red during the Holidays? Is it the only time of year that you wear red?
