Redefining Red

For all those who do not swear by colour codes and love to experiment with their wardrobes, there are endless choices to dress. The hazy and dull winter weather calls for all matte shades and vibrant hues to be digged out of the closet and grace the streets. Bolder shades such as bottle green, fuchsia and indigo are winning combinations, but what can set eyes aflutter is the carnal scarlet colour.

Often associated with celebration and merry making, the colour red adds charm and sensuality to any attire and any look. Surveys and research have proven to those men find women sporting much more attractive to those dressed in any other colour. Are you already tempted to turn into the next female, Red Riding hood, well here  is your quick style guide that will ensure you commit no  fashion faux pas.


A classic shade, red can make your skin glow, incorporate red in your wardrobe in form of red blouses, tops (preferably I fabrics like satin, velvet, silk) or ditch the LBD for a little red dress instead. Gowns and evening cocktail dresses in red are sure to turn you into a Diva instantly. Go bohemian with red Ghaghara skirt paired with a muted tank top or get more punk with red leather leggings teamed with a basic tunic.


Red stilettos are sure shot head turners when sported with a short dress or an evening gown. One can also add some playful colour by wearing red flip flops with embellishments to complement ethnic wear or flaunt a pair of sneakers with ultra-chic shorts or causal denims.


A plain Jane look can be altered to a sex goddess’s avatar in minutes by throwing in some red coloured accessories. Flaunt a red beaded necklace or a chunky pair of red stone earrings. Add some oomph to that single piece dress by sectioning it with a red leather belt. For an understated yet graceful appearance, add a red rose to your hair and smell delicious.


Adding red to your make up is the easiest way to up your hotness quotient. Exude a diva’s  seductiveness with a Scarlett red lip colour, cheeks brushed with a bit red blush powder for evening occasions and even a tinge of red shimmer goes a long way to send just the right signals to the opposite sex.
