Your Valentine is deep red

What’s love without a big hit of colour splashing through our winter days?

Just before transitioning from chilly to warmer temps St. Valentine’s day is a great excuse to come forward with a bold and fiery hue. “Red is a mood elevator,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone’s executive director. “It can boost confidence and make you feel more in control.”
Bold and beautiful, the all-time-classic colour is not for the light-hearted.Red, a very sharp-edged colour is ideal for those strong statements that love is. As for how to wear red “go with bluer reds if your complexion is fair; spicier orange-reds will flatter darker skin. Whatever you choose, keep hair sleek and lips neutral (red lips would be too matchy), and step out in black or nude shoes that won’t distract. Resist the urge to stop at just a pop–a long line of color is often visually slimming (not to mention stunning)” says InStyle.
 Red accessories on the other hand are more easier to carry around. Invest in the deep red hue and fall in love with fierce fashion all over again.
