Hot Hue

We're mad about red this month of the hearts.
Hot Hue We're mad about red this month of the hearts.

The hottest hue of the color spectrum leads this month's big celebrations: Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year, which, this year, fall on the same day. We can already smell the anticipation with blocked reservations, building traffic and the cutesy Cupid cut-outs on store windows.

Red, being the color of the month, officially or unofficially, we pulled up our sartorial picks in this strong shade to show how the color does pack a lot of punch. Not only is it the token color of the day of hearts, in the East, red is also the color of happiness and prosperity, supposedly attracting good luck.

And if you're still not convinced, red is the color of power (Read: Roll out the red carpet!). Say, it's not meant for wallflowers. We love how this shade is sophisticated, mysterious, and attention-grabbing all at the same time.

As Christian Louboutin puts it, “Red is the green light for men.” So do check out our feature on everything red.
