I love the relationship a woman can have with wearing a color – especially red. Researchers argue that colors carry different meanings and can even have psychological influences. They say colors offer more than just aesthetics, and I completely agree. Red, unlike any other color of the rainbow, makes women feel sexy, bold, knowing, and assertive. Wear red and take in its full capabilities when you want to make an impression and be noticed, not when you are feeling timid. Be a lady in red.
This color is unforgettable especially because it carries such rich history. Think Valentino’s signature 1959 red cocktail dress, Audrey Hepburn’s Givenchy red silk gown as she walks down the steps of the Louvre in Funny Face, Princess Diana always being spotted in the hue, and Julia Robert’s red dress in Pretty Women. A classic color because wearing it never goes out of style. Following designer Bill Blass’s advice, “when in doubt, wear red” I chose to buy this 70’s style jumpsuit (see another style here) for a perfect night out look. I fell in love with the open back and bell sleeves, deciding all it really needed was some matching lips and platforms. Aside from the aesthetics, I felt empowered, I was instantly in the mood to “paint the town red” as they say.
