Red might not be able to make you look slimmer, like black does. Red definitely won’t make you appear smarter. But any bright shade of crimson will make you more attractive and sexier to men.
There have been hundreds of studies over the years to back this up. A report in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that men would be willing to spend more on a date if she were in red.

Why is red so damn sexy? I think that men subconsciously associate the color red with sex because red symbolises the flush we get from sexual arousal. It has also long been culturally seen as a colour for passion and sex. If you were a pimp marketing a hooker, would you put her in a red dress or a baby blue one? See what I mean? It’s human instinct to associate red with sex.
Not saying that we should be hookers when we are on dates, but the basic gist of all these findings show that if we would like to impress our date, and make him attracted to us. We’d have a much higher chance of achieving it if we were to wear red than brown or purple.
If you’re someone who has never worn bright colours, or never made heads turn, you might be very apprehensive about stepping out of the house in a slut red dress. No worries, there are many subtle yet effective ways in which you can incorporate red into your look.
