They did it, and you can too. If you have had my experience, you were told your whole life to stay away from reds. Can redheads wear red? I say yes, and arguably, they wear it better than anyone else.
The theory is, and it’s a silly theory is that it might clash with your hair. I think the logic was too much red is overbearing, instead of the logic that you are a stunner… so be even more stunning. Don’t hide behind the greens and browns.
I admit, there are some reds I like more than others. I tend to like the deeper reds instead of the reds on the orange side, but I’ve seen them both on gingers and they are equally gorgeous. This is a shade that has more of an orange tone in it.
This is a deeper red, and I love this dress because it also shows enough skin to offset the deep tomato color. Honestly? You would be hard pressed to find a more gorgeous color on her!
What I love about these three examples is they all have a very different shade of red. The first is a very bright red, second strawberry blonde and lastly (below) on the darker/auburn side.
