Bacon and lettuce’s best friend, tomato, hasn’t always had a fair shake. After years of being left out of the fashion world, finally tomato has been given the opportunity to be showcased and to shine. Although the colour may be difficult to initially describe, tomato is defined as red based with a tinge of orange.
This season, tomato has been popping up in many different areas, from outerwear to accessories, making an easy addition of new colour to your wardrobe. In the summer, having a pop of colour is always a fun way to update your look, and why not step outside of the box with something different and unique? However, since tomato items are statement pieces on their own, it would be best to keep all other colours neutral by pairing tomato with beige, white and black. If you are truly an adventure seeker, you can also colour block tomato and mix it with shades of blue and green. With the number of options retailers have provided, even if you tend to shy away from bright colours, you can add interest through accessories such as shoes, bags and jewelry. This summer tomato is no longer just a fruit in your salad, it can be your go to piece for stunning colour.
