The color red has always been crammed with connotations. "Red hot," "hearts," "red blooded," "red Ferrari sports car" and “red roses," are just of few of the things that come into the psyche. Psychologists believe that a hint of red increases a person´s enthusiasm and stimulate their energy levels. It also happens to be the first color in any rainbow. One thing for sure, for extra flair, red is the word as a fashion statement to knock the Richter scale to new levels of stylishness.

Women can be intimidated by red´s undertones, and believe that they cannot pull it off.  That is a huge mistake because wearing red is a confidence raiser and shows off a woman as being in control of their lives. Even adding a minimal amount of red to an outfit, not only sets the style, but positions the tone of the day to an encouraging one.
