Last week we featured one of the colors of the season: Evergreen. The shade of green is reminiscent to the garlands, wreaths, and Christmas trees we decorate our homes with every year. Amidst the sea of green hitting the streets next season will be many pops of this vibrant and rich shade of red most commonly seen on the “Red Guy,” Santa Claus. That’s right, Christmas colors will be hot next season (for once). Holiday parties will actually be chic this year. Less Rudolph and more Raf, less elves and more Zegna. If you’re an acting Santa Claus in the mall you can stay in character with these fantastic designs that you can wear on your off days. Well, that’s if you’d want to. Regardless, pick up some Santa Claus red next season and rep the North Pole proudly. Oh, and be on the lookout for Santa walking the streets this year instead of riding his sleigh. He’ll have plenty of people to hide behind and camouflage.
