Call it fire engine red, Chinese red or cherry red – there is no better colour in the autumn to complement your caramel tan (or whatever is left of it). That and a flash of a simple gold bangle.

For me a flash of red evokes summer holidays at the seaside, white boats on sun dappled water and an oversized man’s shirt casually thrown over a bikini.

My favourite ones at the moment are Essie Russian Roulette and Pandore by Dior.
