A lot of people put on their only red piece of clothing on the 14th, keeping it hidden all year long and waiting for this special day to proudly wear it. I can’t tell you why. This energetic color can easily be matched and can be worn in every season, why wait?
First, red color is such a versatile color. It can be adapted to every style: a chic red dress, a casual red duffle coat, comfy red wool socks, a trendy red beret, cute red rain boots or a red plaid grunge shirt. Red color can be associated with all kinds of clothing.
Secondly, depending on the fabric, red can be adapted to every season. For example, your wardrobe can include a red dress for all situations: a simple red wool dress combined with tights and a cardigan for fall, an A-line red satin dress worn with a leather bow belt for Christmas or New Year holidays, a red short sleeved jersey scoop back dress accessorized with a vest and a shoulder bag for spring and a red silk pleated dress worn with wedge sandals for summer. Gotta have ‘em all!
Not only is red vibrant and energetic, but it can also be matched to almost every color; even orange, pink and purple. Trust me. Pale pink and red-orange colors look amazing together. So go ahead and do bright red and pale orange or dark fuchsia. Obviously, classics such as red denim pants with a white top and a leather belt, a black dress with red nail polish and shoes or a burnt red shirt with khaki pants and navy accessories are entrenched.
So keep your heart-shaped earrings for that special day and enjoy your red clothing the rest of the year.
