Red Power – Passion, Desire & Love. Red is a classic color associated with Valentines Day. It conveys many positive feelings such as energy, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Reds are always in style and are ruling fashion today . The last several seasons red has been evident on designer runways such as Giambattista Valli, Valentino, Stella McCartney and Sonial Rykiel.
Red on Valentine’s Day symbolizes love for many and is a very emotionally intense color. In China, red is associated with good luck and fortune and many brides choose to wear red color wedding dresses. In India, a red mark on the forehead is said to bring good luck. At one time red symbolized importance, prestige and wealth since red dyes were very expensive.
What are we saying when we are dressed in red? We are expressing a number of qualities such as a desire to be noticed, warmth, a high energy level, a youthful attitude, happiness, enthusiasm and confidence to name a few. Darker color reds are more subtle than bright reds but convey the same messages.
In February think about expressing red power all month and convey a positive attitude about life and about you!
