Red Never Goes Out of Style

By Jennifer McGeever
24 Apr 2015

Now, how many of you are found guilty of storing one too many auspiciously colored and romantic, lacy outfits in your wardrobe since Chinese New Year or Valentine's Day? Caught you red-handed, didn't we? We’d know, because we've got a handful of them ourselves.

Which really makes us wonder why women avoid wearing reddish shades on a regular basis. Some call it intense and attention grabbing. We call it looking powerful and confident. After all, there’s more to that pantone than just fire red – we’ve still got maroon, mahogany, scarlet, wine, ruby and many more in the running! 

That said, donning hues of red can be an art in itself. Thankfully, they never go out of style! (Thanks, Taylor Swift...) So here are some of our favorite roundups on how you can put together entirely different looks with your existing red-hot chili pepper pieces!
