Red is as divisive a color as they come, reserved for branding, sporting jerseys, and children’s clothes but rarely seen in the adult world – especially in the office.
Red is an impact color. You don’t wear red to sit in a corner and hope not to be noticed. That’s why the ‘subscribe’ or ‘buy now’ buttons on so many websites are red – it’s the most standout of all the standout colors, grabbing your attention and saying “hey, you, look right at me, look right over here”. With such domineering overtones, red is often overlooked in office spaces, where quietly getting on with your work and sharing hushed-tone watercooler chats about the latest office romance is much more the order of things.
So. Red. Should you try it? Do you dare? Let’s find out.
Red colored glasses
Red is a powerful color and people who want to wear red typically aren’t short on charisma.
If red truly resonates with your personality then why try introducing a little glimpse of what’s hiding behind the stack of paperwork with red colored glasses. Office wear can be so bland. All that black and grey and brown. Maybe some cream. A hint of gold or silver jewelry. And you’re done. Boring old office wear.
But red glasses will have two effects. First, you will feel energized simply by showing a little of your character – you’ll play up to the red. Second, other people will instantly recognize your personality type and may also feel energized when speaking to you (or will certainly be more likely to approach you with a hint of anticipation that you have a strong personality).
If that sounds like you, look into red eyeglasses for the win.
Red belt and shoe combo
If it’s far too early in your red-wearing office career to introduce a whole outfit of red from top to toe, break the ice by investing in a red belt and red shoe combo.
The thing about this is that the established high heel and pantsuit look for women will fit effortlessly with the idea, whereas for men’s fashion the best approach might be to switch belts and shoes for a tan leather hue that leans more towards red than brown. Red adds an instant lift to your office attire that won’t go unnoticed.
You will look and feel like you have value. And that’s not a bad attitude to be carrying around with you where business is concerned.
