Pick a shade that compliments your personality: Red is one of the three primary colors. No matter what shade (red+black) or tone (red + white) you choose to wear red in, it will make a statement. True red is a color that’s for the woman with dynamic boldness in her own person as well as in her sexuality. There have also been professional studies done at the University of South Brittany in France stating that red sends the signal to men that you’re looking for sex.


Wear true red with caution ladies. Here are some other options of wearing red, and what they mean:

  • Maroon: a dark bluish red, it denotes controlled and more thoughtful action. It is slightly softer than burgundy and not as dramatic as true red.
  • Burgundy: a dark purplish red, it is more sophisticated and serious and less energetic than true red. It indicates controlled power, determined ambition and dignified action and is often favored by the wealthy.
  • Crimson: has a little blue in it. It indicates a determination to succeed but without upsetting anyone else. It emits sensuality rather than sexuality.
  • Scarlet: has a little orange mixed with it, giving it a richness and brightness. It indicates enthusiasm and a love of life. It is a little less intense and more fun-loving than true red, tempered with a degree of defiance.
