One of the most exciting and beautiful colors is the color RED. When a woman carries something Red it gets noticed right away. All dating advice columnists always suggest a single lady should wear something Red so that you can stand out from the rest of the women. The color Red suggests, love, passion, fury, power, and the list can go on and on. Research has shown that the effect of the color red is an attraction booster for both sexes. For women, when a man wears red, he is more attractive whereas, when a woman wears red, she is more sexually attractive to a man. In ancient times, red often served as a symbol of rank, power and prominence. Throughout history, Kings and Cardinals all wore red as a symbol of power. The Roman Empire, its senates and their soldiers all wore red to show status, power and fury. Red is the color that commands a room. When one walks in, if he or she wears Red, they can essentially command the room if they make the right moves. More than any other color, Red is the most influential color.
For a woman, I love the idea of wearing a piece or splash of red, such as a red bag, red lips, red belt, red shoes, red scarf, or even red nails. I always love a splash of red, but not head-to-toe red. An all-black outfit would be perfect with a red bag alone OR red shoes and red belt (but no red bag) OR all-black with a red skirt and that should be enough, too much red is overkill. You want to wear just enough to be noticed but not scream attention. It shows mystery. Remember, a man always likes a little mystery!
Another favorite of mine is to wear red lips with nude eyes and, a thin line of black eyeliner and mascara. I have searched and searched for the best red lipsticks and I finally found two. 1) NARS: Red Lizard. It’s a perfect vampire red. It goes with any skin tones and will surely make a statement when you wear it with confidence. Only thing with this lipstick is that it dries your lips out, but all you have to do is put a lip primer or chapstick first to keep your lips moist. 2) Shiseido: RD514 Dragon. This one you can wear it two ways. First, you can put it on and leave it the way it is, or, you can put it on and use a tissue to blot it (the way I always wear it). It will come out a slightly different color red and it will look more natural. I love this look!
For a man, I really like a bright Red tie with a black or navy suit. Other red items that a man can wear would be a red sweater or a dimmer colored Red hat. Nowadays, it isn’t easy for a man to pull off Red, but if they can, then they look striking and powerful. If a man has the confidence to wear red, he will be confident enough to walk into the room and command that room. That’s what attracts women!
Don’t be afraid to wear Red, but you have to wear Red with confidence, so you can walk anywhere with dominance. I think one’s image is the whole package. It includes your attitude, personality, well-read, and the way you present yourself. This is just a small part of presenting yourself and I hope this helps everyone who reads this to have more confidence in wearing Red!
