In mastering a thematic red look for Valentine’s Day, it is essential to first choose the right red. While anyone can look great in TRUE red; the reality is that most red pieces are a variation of either cool or warm tones. The easiest way to navigate your ideal colorway is to first figure out what season you are!
A guide to discovering your seasonal palette can be found HERE.
Once you’ve identified your season, then check out which reds we love for YOUR color palette below!
Vibrant orange-reds like Poppy and Geranium, as well as bright Watermelon, Coral, Strawberry and Tomato reds will create a flattering pop of color on Spring palettes!
Like a Spring palette, you will want to gravitate towards warmer hues! Rather than clear bright colors however, an Autumn pulls off softer, deeper shades. Rust, Terracotta, Brick, Tomato and Flame are all Fall-palette winners!
A Summer palette is best complimented by cool toned reds that hint back to pink and plum! Ripe and soft colors like Berry, Juicy Cherry, Raspberry, and shades of Wine are fabulous for this palette!
High-contrast and bright berry tones like Crimson, Claret-Wine, Burgundy and Raspberry help create the dramatic color needed to compliment a Winter palette! For added vibrancy, try true red!
