As the warmest hue on the primary color wheel, red is often associated with love, passion and energy. Like Dorothy's ruby red slippers in "The Wizard of Oz," nothing says glamour like this bold color.

The color red adds a cheerful vibe to even the most simple outfit. Try adding one red accessory like our plaid headband or graphic necktie to your look for a hint of color.
