RED- The color I so love!!
Red, the color so beautiful, even carrying a red bag would turn heads.
I have so often heard that red is symbolic for power, for passion, for nobility.
But for me, ‘RED’ means positivity, happiness, a little bit of spring under my feet and a belief that all will go well.
You will very often see me wear red in some form or the other; it could be as little as a red lipstick or red shoes or even a red clutch. It’s just that, carrying this color makes me happy.
Every time I have worn red, I have the song, “The lady in Red” by Chris De Burgh, playing in my mind; especially these lines:
……The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek
There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me
It’s where I want to be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I’ll never forget the way you look tonight……
Red is also my ‘go to color’; I am at a loss of what to wear, I choose red. And it works, every single time.
It works if it’s a formal dinner; it works if it’s a fun lunch with friends or family; it works if it’s a casual get together; it works if it’s tea with colleagues…. Any situation, Red works for me.
Let me show you, how I wear my Reds…..
1. When I wore Red for a formal evening.
The dress is from AND; Black stilettos from Steve madden; Watch from Rado; A multi colored bracelet from an exhibition in Mumbai;
Makeup is restricted to light foundation, Smokey eyes and a light tone lipstick.(I never overdo makeup with a dress)
2. When I wore red for lunch with friends
Dress is from And; Boots from Forever 21; Gold color beaded necklace from a street vendor on Linking Road,Mumbai; Sun glasses from Vogue. Again, makeup was minimal- a tinted sunscreen, little bit of blush and a glossy lip balm
3. When I wore red for a fun evening with friends
Skirt is from Marks & Spencer; Silk top from Elle; Apple watch; Heels from Tommy Hilfiger; Black hoops from S V Road, Mumbai; Bag from Kate Spade; A black and white crystal bangle; My makeup was a little more than usual, just to give a dramatic look..
4.When I wore red for tea (a semi-formal event)
A printed cotton, asymmetrical dress; small studs for ears; hand embroidered heels from Calonge; I used a cream based foundation, bronzer to bring color to my cheeks and a red lipstick.
For me, red has worked every time. I am sure it would work for any of you as well.
Call it crimson, call it coral, call it scarlet, rosy or wine; Red is a color that brings happiness, smile and grace.
Try wearing RED; I am sure you’ll look fabulous. If it’s too much for you to wear a red dress, start with a red accessory first, like a bag, a clutch or shoes. You’ll soon fall in love with it too.
Any help, I am there.
