Red is a sexy color. Think of the lady in red who turns the heads of every red blooded man around her. Think of the Hollywood starlet in her beautiful red gown. Or Julia Roberts, so radiant, so beautiful in her red gown in Pretty Woman.

The irony is that red is one color that few women dare wear.

Some women feel that red is too glaring. Some tried wearing red dresses and felt they looked like fire engines instead. Granted, red is an attention grabbing color. Not for someone who wants to disappear in the crowd. But if you want to be a star, if you are sick of being the perpetual wallflower red is the color to wear.

Red is a fiery color associated with love, passion, ambition. . with living.

A woman who wears the right shade of red looks stunning. She garners admiring glances all around.

Every woman can look really stunning in red. . if she knows what colors in general suit her.

You see, there are warm reds and cool reds.

Know yourself.

Do you look good in black and royal blue? Then you would look best in the cool reds and the true reds. That means choose a pure red or strong red with a bluish tinge. You can wear burgundy well too.

If you look better in pale blues and grays, then a softer, but cool red would be more flattering. Cut a watermelon open and look at that shade of red. This watermelon red is a soft cool red that suits you. Pick reds like these.

If you look better in peach or orange than you do in black and royal blue, then you would look fabulous in a warm red. A red with warmer tones. Look at a ripe tomato. That is the shade of red that suits you best.

If you look best in browns, then go for a brownish red. A red with brownish tones. A brick red would suit you well too. As would the color of red earth.

Once you know your red, you can start building a red wardrobe. You can base your wardrobe on red. Doesn't have to be that exact shade of red but somewhere like it.

A cooler pinkier red for those with cool skin tones. The ones who look good in blue and black.

A warmer, orangier red for those with warm skin tones, who look good in peach, brown or orange.

Now that you have your red, pick some other colors that would go with red and with your skin tone.

If you have warm skin tones, consider getting gold, beige and browns as neutrals to go with your red clothing. Animal prints, in natural animal fur colors go beautifully with red too. Some black would work too as black and red go beautifully together.

If you have warm skin tones, check out glamorous red wardrobe featured at where red, gold, indigo and animal print colors are used to flatter warm skin tones. If you have cool skin tones, check out red office attire wardrobe featured at where blues and grays are used instead. Both include black as black goes beautifully with red.
