Power Color Red

Happy Thursday! Can you believe it’s the end of the first week of 2017? In honor of the New Year, today’s look of the day focuses on my power color red.  New Year means a fresh start, which is why I want to wear red, my power color. For day to day, I like to wear neutral colors, but when I want to feel confident and strong, I choose the color red. My favorite reds have a blue tone to them. Because I’m Chinese, red symbolizes luck, happiness, and joy for me.

Why Red?

I find deep reds to flatter my complexion. Red makes me feel confident and strong, especially a red lip. Highlighting one feature has always been my style. Neutral eye makeup and a bold red lip. Like my makeup, I like to choose one item to go bold. This red sweater from Boohoo was a great find for $30, which I got at 50% off. The color is just bright enough without making me feel uncomfortable and I love the wide neckline. While the color red is bold, it is easy to style with a neutral wardrobe.

Power Color, The Outfit:

Sweater: Boohoo

Jeans: Topshop

Bag: Coach

Shoes: Similar linked

Lips: Sisley Paris

Fun Facts About The Color Red

  • Red is the highest arc of the rainbow.
  • Red is the first color you lose sight of at twilight.
  • The longest wavelength of light is red.
  • Feng shui recommends painting the front door of a home red to invite prosperity to the residents.
  • Bees can’t see the color red, but they can see all other bright colors. Red flowers are usually pollinated by birds, butterflies, bats, and wind, rather than bees.

    HI! This was so interesting. I love the facts about red. While purple has always been one of my favorite colors I don’t feel confident wearing it. I like the combination of black and red. I also love a great red lippie and a fushia lippie makes me feel happy too. Great pictures!

    Red is my color too! I’m Indian and wore a red sari for my wedding. Anytime I want to feel great, it’s my color. I normally carry a red purse too. Wine is another favorite followed by peacock blue.
    I just pinned this post because I love your darker highlights. I needed to show my hairdresser.

    Your look is great! I love that sweater on you. My power colors are really a group of colors. I would describe them as the “royals” or jewel tones; royal purple, royal blue, emerald green, ruby red. I am very blonde and very light skinned, so the brightness of these colors brings me to life.

    I’m not sure what’s my power color. Maybe a test to determinate my power color would be great! At the moment I think is grey or black because I’m always wearing these colors, makes me feel in confidence and I think they shape better my body.
