Is Red A Colour I can Wear?
I love the colour red and in fact I am known for it. It makes me feel nice, as I know it suits me, and I look good in it, that I tend to wear it a lot. It is also an energy giving colour and being a busy lady helps me get through the day.
So Can Everyone Wear Red?
Most people can wear most colours but it is the undertone and intensity of colour that makes the difference. Firstly, are you a warm or cool skinned person? A warm red will have a yellow undertone and therefore you should go for a tomato red but a cool toned skin should look for a blue undertone and look at a Raspberry red. Both colours are red but very different and if you place both colours against your skin independently you will see the difference.
Once you have decided which tone of red you should wear, how do you put your outfits together and what colours work best with RED!!!
Being a lover of red I do have a lot of red in my wardrobe and surprising enough red goes with so many colours. You can wear red with neutrals, ivory, biscuit, navy, grey and charcoal. You don’t have to wear a bright full on red dress. Try a plain dress in any of those colours and accessorise it, it can bring the dress alive. Perhaps a red statement neckless or scarf, red belt, red handbag and red shoes with a plain navy dress or any of the colours above. (Shoes and bag do not have to match these days)
You could add a red jacket, cardigan or coat to add some colour to our outfits but the simplest way is with a scarf or jewellery. You could also add the colour underneath a blouse or cardigan by adding a red camisole. What you need to bear in mind is where you put the colour is where the eye will be drawn. Wear the darkest colours on the areas of your body you want to hide.
