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?
Ruby Red 8.5 oz Cotton Twill, Apple Slice Cotton Knit-Dusty Coral/Cream, White/Black /Pink/Red Daisy Print Stretch Cotton Poplin, Red Faux Leather
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.
Paprika Twill 6 oz Lyocell, Amber Stylized Floral Viscose Crepe, Ivory/Rose Gold Brocade, Persimmon Stretch Silk Charmeuse
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.
Haute Pink/Black Geometric 2-Ply Viscose, Ballerina Pink Cotton Shirting, Large Lilac/Vivid Auburn Floral Cotton/Viscose Blend, Fuschia Ponte Knit
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.
Silk Charmeuse-Violet, Black/Orchid Reversible Floral Taffeta, Silk Charmeuse-Amethyst, Blackberry Twill 6 oz Lyocell
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.
