Can anyone wear red? – It’s one of my favourite colours


Although we can all wear most colours, it is the intensity and undertone of the colour that counts. Red is very much considered a Christmas colour, but of course it can be worn any time of the year. Anyone who knows me, will confirm without doubt, red is one of  my favourite colours.  Why?, because I know which red suits me and also I love the energy and power that wearing red gives me. So, in answer to the question  can anyone wear red? – It’s one of my favourite colours. The answer is YES its the undertone that counts.

If you have a warm skin tone, you need to wear a warm red and you can identify this as a red with a yellow undertone. I often describe this as an orangey red which is a bright vibrant colour like this lovely square neck knitted top from Top Shop  at £22.00

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cool Skin tone

If you have a cool skin tone you need to choose a blue based red like this lovey dark red blouse I have here. This is from Debenhams at £19.99.  It has a blue base colour often descrbed as a berry red.

A very simple rule to bear in mind when you are shopping is, whether the shade is warm or cool. If you try both options, cool red and then warm red, you will see the difference very clearly.  Try one shade and look at the effect it has on your skin.  Does it bring it alive, make your eyes sparkle and your skin glow?  Does it even out your skin tone?  Or does the colour make you look tired and washed out, dull and generally unwell?

Give your body a little time to absorb the colour, your skin will give you the answer and you will know which red is best for you.

Not everyone likes to wear that high level of colour, that is also fine. If you want to turn down the dimmer switch, you can and go for a colour with less virbrancy. Pink is just a watered- down red.  Another option is to wear red as an accessory.  Try a red handbag or a pair of red shoes, and as they are not next to your skin you don’t have to worry too much if they are the right red.  However, a necklace or scarf, if you are wearing them next to your face, must be the right shade of red for you.

Red is an energetic Colour

Another reason to wear red is that it is the colour of energy, power, passion and action, and will give you a positive, energetic effect. Whereas black, is a negative colour, and an energy blocker and will absorb and deplete your energy.  As a woman running my own business, I love the way colour makes me feel. If I wear all grey, I feel all grey. Don’t wear red when you want to relax and chill after a long day, you will need to change into a more soothing colour to unwind.

So, in answer to my question can anyone wear red?  – It’s my favourite colour the answer is very much YES  but take care to wear the right red.

Wear the right red and see the woman – wear the wrong red and see the suit.
