According to science, women dressed in red are more sexually attractive to men as the colour transmits “powerful” messages about how interested they might be. This is called the ” Red Dress Effect”.
Biologically speaking, “in the wild, when many species of non-human primate females become fertile, their estrogen level rises, which causes their blood vessels to open up, leading to redness on the skin… This increase in redness has been shown to attract male counterparts, expressed by their increased activity in sex, self-stimulation, and attention towards the females. Therefore, there are reasons to believe of the existence of evolutionary instincts that associate red with fertility.” – Wikipedia
I think we can all agree that the image of a woman wearing a red dress is powerful. There’s something very confident, fierce, passionate and seductive about her.
To put theory to the test, on a recent coffee date, I wore my red maxi dress, paired it with summery flatform shoes and accessorised with gold jewellery. Not sure if I was biased but I did notice more heads turning than usual. But then again red is such a bold colour, it’s really hard to miss.
A red dress looks amazing with these accessory and shoe colour combos: white, black, gold, silver. Just keep in mind to not overdo it with the accessories. The red dress itself makes a powerful statement.
