Use the tone of red according to your skin pigment.
Combine it with black, white, or neutral colors like grey or nude.
Use it only as an accent. Maybe just one big red accessory could be enough. A hat, a scarf, or your bag. It could be also the center of interest.


Red and green go together, They are complementary colors, but you should know that is a strong combination and is associated with the Christmas mood.

All red outfits are always well come, but you need also that attitude for them. So, if it’s a bad thy and you do not want to stand out, maybe it is not the best option.

Keep your balance when wearing red. For example, if your dress is too sexy or too short choose a pale shade of red. If you wear a simple shirt or sweater it could be a strong red.

Red lipstick makes you always stand out. And there is an unofficial rule that it matches everything, but you should know that red lips show power and sensuality. Therefore don’t wear them in a formal or spiritual event; like a church, a funeral, or an interview.
