Seeing red

Style coach Elana Shap and photographer Natalie Muallem track down street style in the colors of love.

Seeing red
Red is the signature color for Valentine’s Day (think red roses and a bottle of Merlot), but wearing red on a romantic evening out requires some thought.

Scientific studies show red will make your date’s heart beat faster and has the power to captivate, but that doesn’t mean that it will automatically suit your personality. If sexy and daring are not how you would like to be perceived, then limit red to your accessories or just vamp up your lips and/or nails. Pink is a great fall-back if you want to project a softer image.
