The psychology behind the color red is a driving force for wearing it. The color symbolizes the “revolutionary love and sacrifice” women have made throughout history.

And it may just give you a leg up at work. Constance Hart, a color therapy expert from Conscious Colors, told Vogue,  “If you aren’t feeling centered or secure, black can feel like a security blanket. For that reason, we see a lot of black in cities. In my work, I try to help people move away from black because it can have a depressive quality to it. Color has an effect on our psyche, it’s always affecting us whether we are aware of it or not.”

In 2017, a study published in the Journal of Social Psychology found that because red is an intrinsically striking color, it has a way of accenting what and who most would likely would find it attractive.  So you know people will be checking out!

Plus it gives the wearer a bit of a mojo confidence. The researchers in the study found that those who wore an outfit of mostly red expressed a heightened sense of self-assurance. “We found that people can feel more attractive when putting on red clothes,” the researchers reported. “[T]he results showed that the self-perception red effect was mediated by the individuals’ self-perceived sexual receptivity and self-perceived status.”

If you are a little color shy, try starting with a pop of color. Maybe a hat or purse then work your way up to a fabulous dress or full monochromatic look. Here are some of the best tomato red pieces for you to get your confidence on this spring.
