Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, red is the hot color to be wearing this winter! The color of passion ignites a lot of conflicting emotions, but getting noticed is getting noticed, right? Different cultures seem to have their opinions on the color red. The Chinese believe is represents luck and happiness, while in Russia a red flag represents communism. Although red is a color in many flags, lets not get political and stick to red fashion instead.

Basically, if you want to get noticed and want a song written about you, wear red! There is something powerful about a woman who walks in a classic black suit with bold bright red lipstick-- it just looks so undeniably stunning. It doesn’t always have to look overwhelmingly sexy, red fashion can actually be appropriate in a conservative setting. It’s all in the way you carry yourself.

But, for those who are looking for the sexy red, I’ve got a dress that will amplify sexy by ten fold. This Bebe Killer Curves Dress is a knockout! If you feel like you need an extra boost, step up your look with this red strapless dress and watch the eyes focus in on you. Power of color, isn’t it wonderful? You can tone it down a bit with pearls and a black wool blazer. Otherwise, rock it while you’ve got it.

Okay, so we’ve covered red lipsticks before, but I just realized the stunner potential of Sephora’s very own red lipstick line. The Sephora Lip Attitude - Chic 100% Red lipstick is a semi-glossy, sophisticated red without shimmer. Red, shimmery lips don’t look nice on anyone but Barbie. Sephora’s Lip Attitude line has an array of colors to choose from, including a few others that are in the red family. The lipstick line contains complex omega 3 and vitamin E to prevent lips from aging. Red lips are bright and noticeable so, when wearing red lips, try to keep the eye makeup simple to keep it classic. The best thing about red lipstick is the way it makes teeth look super white-- love it! Feel free to smile, laugh, and vice versa!

Red lips and a strapless red dress may not be your cup of tea but, how about a warm stylin’ red jacket? Victoria Secret’s Drop-Waist Belted Wool Coat in Chili Twill is beyond stylish! Everything about this jacket is an A+. This jacket is the right look for any setting. The drop waist gives this jacket a fun flare; the large collars and oversized buttons give the jacket an edgy modern look. The color is darker red, which is a little less flashy, but trust me you wont go unnoticed in this coat!
