Wearing Red

Whenever you see red, the first thought that comes to you is to "stop," yet when it comes to wearing red it is saying that you are really into fashion and are up-to-date. By adding red and complementing the red with other colors, you are moving in the right fashion direction.

It has often been said that some women shouldn't wear red—especially red-haired women. Nothing is further from the truth. The secret to wearing red is finding the right color of red to wear along with complementing colors.

If you happen to have red hair you need to find the color of red that complements your hair color. If your hair is of a copper tone than you would want to chose reds that are more of a tomato or a brick shade. Those who have auburn color hair would find raspberry and ruby colors more complementary.

When it comes to wearing clothing the trick is picking the right pieces and mixing them in a new way. Giving your wardrobe a new look, and making your wardrobe appear to be larger than it really is.

Some fun colors to match would be:

  • Red and Black. This is a very dominating look. To get the right look and still be classy try using one color and use the other color only as an accent with one piece.
  • Red and Camel. This look is more subdued, but classy, giving a look of being rich and refined. The soft tone of camel helps to mellow out the red.
  • Red and Teal. This combination is a very high-energy look. With this look you need to be careful and not appear overly done. These colors can be carried off by wearing one color more dominantly, and then wear the other color with maybe one or two at the most of the other color.
  • Red and Purple. This look can really make you stand out where you want, and hide those trouble spots, which can create a very flattering look. Wear a purple shade wherever you want to detract attention, and use red to highlight the areas that you want to accentuate. Purple shades always give a regal look and feel.

By wearing classic styles of clothes it is much easier to mix and match your reds with other colors.
