The colour red is the most emotionally intense colour, even stimulating a faster heartbeat and breathing-rate. It's also the colour of luuuurve. Red is an eyegrabbing shade, and its intensity can be a little overwhelming. The most romantic colour, pink, is less stimulating but still beautiful. And contrary to my what my mother told me once in grade eight, you *can* wear pink and red together.
With Valentine's Day around the corner, I thought I'd round up some great ways to inject the colour of love into your style - whether for a day at the park with the kids or a night out with your partner. (Or a night in your fat pants on the couch watching Friday the 13th with some take-out Chinese. Whatever your jam.)
Because red is such an eye-catching colour, many women tell me they feel uncomfortable wearing it head-to-toe but the good news is that red is incredibly chic as an accent to an otherwise neutral ensemble! A red nail and red lip combo is classic and glamorous, while red shoes are a fun way to inject some colour into your outfit. A red blouse breathes colour into your face while red skinnies make for a super cool alternative to regular denim. Go big or go home in a red jump suit, a daring red dress or top off your look with a cute red jacket. Or wear red under your outfit. Ahem.
Oh! And, of course, these pieces will look beautiful on the other 364 days of the year too!
