The best look for February 14 is one in the most energetic shade there is: red. It’s the color of fire and passion, a color full of romanticism for Valentine’s Day.
February is one of the most romantic months of the year, with the 14th being an especially important day. This day, commonly known as “Lovers’ Day” or “Valentine’s Day” is one of the most celebrated celebrations around the world. It’s a day all about spending time with loved ones. For many of us, this means our partners, but it’s also a time to celebrate our closest friends.
The color par excellence for these dates is red, the color of love and passion. Red is energetic, iconic, memorable, and eye-catching. This tone has a duality to it that makes it one of the most used in the world of art, design and fashion. We see this color almost every season in ready-to-wear, bags, accessories, and shoes. It is interesting to see how the spectrum of reddish hues has come through in the Resort 2022 collections from various designers.
Some designers gave their collection an air of romance by using this color in garments–from ethereal slip dresses from Erdem and Elie Saab to more fitted dresses that sensually hug a woman’s curves from Carolina Herrera or Moschino. Pierpaolo Piccioli gave us a very feminine and youthful embroidered mini dress from Valentino, and Tod’s gave us a more edgy piece in leather. There were also sportswear-inspired pieces from Balenciaga and masculine garments from Dsquared2 and Zimmermann. The Resort 2022 collections were full of red.
This very emotional color is going to be all over our wardrobe this season. So, whatever you’re planning for February 14th, red is the ideal hue for your look. Whether it’s dinner out with your best friends or a romantic evening with your partner, go for a total red outfit and look spectacular on Valentine’s Day.
