Red sunglasses are worn by those people who like to be noticed, who like to make a statement, “hey world, look at me, I’m a proud and confident person whose not afraid to show it.”
In nature and the material world we’ve built around us, red has come to signify danger, something to be weary of. But, when used in fashion, red comes to represent and all the more endearing characteristic of this trait.
Red signifies someone who is powerful, bold and full of self-confidence so wearing something red is good for some like a sales person, who has these personality traits naturally and wishes to exploit them. Conversely, it’s also a good colour for those who don’t naturally have these characterises, for those who perhaps suffer from a lack of self-confidence and who wish to take some steps to reverse this perception.
Good news for woman trying to attract Mr Right, a recent study conducted by an American university and published in the Daily Mail, showed that men were subconsciously more attracted to women in red when compared to other colours.
Over a series of different tests, an alarming pattern emerged, that even when men attempted to take other factors into consideration, such as personality or upbringing, there is some deep, internally overriding instinct towards women in red. This behaviour has also been seen in primates, with females becoming redder in relevant areas around ovulation time to attract mates.
Wearing red sunglasses could give you that edge then ladies when trying to lasso the man of your dreams on the beach or good for showing the men in the office whose boss when they try to push you around. Red isn’t just good for women either, the bold colour can help males exert dominance, and red tinting in the lenses of sunglasses has proved to help better distinguish shapes such as balls when playing sports.
