Colors for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s day is coming and it’s a good time to reconnect in a big or small way with family and friends.  If you’re celebrating (my family is taking a cooking class) you’re probably thinking about what color to wear.  I asked Color Strategist Lauren Battistini t0 highlight the popular colors for the Day of Love!  #sewlovefellowship


Red is the go-to color for Valentine’s Day, and there is a good reason for that.  Who can ignore red?  It almost insists on being noticed.  It represents passion and intensity and I’m here for it!  Why not opt for a nail color or handbag in this hue for those feeling less than bold about wearing red?

Orange is the spunky, optimistic, creative, and less intimidating cousin to red.  I love to see orange in all of its tones, from mandarin to peach to coral.

Let’s not forget pink, which is evocative of the softer, gentler, sweeter side of love.  Baby pinks and blushes are a calm, subdued expression of love, while vibrant hot pink expresses itself with much of the passion of red.

Violet, periwinkle, and purple tones are all reminiscent of the deep, spiritual component of all love relationships.  These tones most remind us of deity and I would hope God’s love for us.

White symbolizes purity, as well as fresh starts and new beginnings.  This Valentine’s Day, I want to wear white to remind myself that my closest relationships are ALL based on the solid foundations of unselfish love and pure motives.
