When we spoke to Doireann and Aoibhín Garrihy at Arnott's Style Sessions earlier in the year, radio presenter Doireann mentioned that red would be the colour of the season.

"I think red is a massive colour for this season which is obviously very convenient for Christmas," said Doireann.

It looks as if the Snapchat Queen was right in her prediction as Irish celebs including  Ruth Negga, Vogue Williams, Pippa O'Connor, Roz Purcell, Evanne Ní Chuilinn, Aoibhín Garrihy, Doireann Garrihy and Emma Manley have all been spotted rocking red this holiday season.

Aoibhín Garrihy


Aoibhín's loose red mini dress is so pretty and easy to wear, the actress paired it with knee-high boots, a dash of red lip and she was good to go.

The Olalla long-sleeved red dress is from Willow and can be found here for  €227.00.

Roz Purcell

Super fit foodie Roz Purcell always looks stunning but this fluffy red coat from Florence Bridge makes her especially eye-catching.

The 'Matilda' Mongolian lamb's wool jacket comes in a range of colours at £450.00 a pop.

Dublin fashion designer Emma Manley wore a beautiful red jacket of her own making. The patent red coat is currently out of stock but the Castleknock lady has plenty more designs on offer.

So there you have it, red is undoubtedly the colour of the season. Will you be wearing it?
