It’s the color of love, Kool-Aid, and ang pao envelopes—and really, who doesn’t like any of those things? Whether it’s a fiery shade of Ferrari or a sexy hue of wine, red gives major spark to any outfit. B/BLOG rings in Chinese New Year and the love month with a color to get lucky with!

Set Fire to Boring Casuals 

When you’re out to stand out, there’s no room for safe colors. Red makes an outfit pop, but too much of it and you may end up looking like a fire extinguisher.

Flashes of the color are enough, as in HIS look, which mixes brick-hued shoes with shades of tomato on both chest pocket and pants.

HER look plays down red’s loudness by laying a cool denim jacket over it and finishing off with rugged black boots.

Fever All Through the Night

For dressier nights, go for darker or more understated reds for a mysterious but still playful vibe.

For HIS look, a sharp navy blazer cools the feverish red of his shirt. Notice the soles of his shoes and the loops of his belt? Subtle flickers of red like this can surprise and charm a girl, and show you care about the details.

Patterned pants give HER look a chic twist, especially when paired with elegant black heels. A delicate black top and polka dot jacket also complement the pants by being both striking and sophisticated.
