We are quite of an egghead when it comes to love relationships. Yes, we also include grandma, your dear grandpa, parents, pets, even pretty things into that list but we also take that part of your heart into consideration which beats for that special person – for which you can say love to ‘red’!

Of course Valentine’s Day is associated with red and shower of love but to be stereotypic is kind of a wrong practice. The world is full of colours and happy spirit, so why do we need to or have to celebrate this special day of heart with specifically one colour? Let scroll down to get a quick overview of the day and its parallel relationship with red and how you can opt for other hues and dresses while heading out for a date with your partner.

A Quick n Short History

During 11th century, Saint Valentine of Rome had started a tradition of performing weddings of soldiers which was forbidden at that time. Since then, the date has been celebrated as the date of love (at least dedicated to love). And as a part of celebration of love, it is has and had to be ‘red’ as the special colour of the day. By 18th century, people started sharing and gifting cards, sweets, chocolates which were named as Valentine and the same tradition is now followed with much gush.

1. Significance Of Red Colour


Red is considered the colour of passion and love and this time we have scientific proof as well. A group of psychologists from the University of Rochester found that women wearing red look alluring and desirable to their partners. The colour reflects a woman’s confidence, spontaneity, and determination and enhances her natural beauty as well. The above mentioned factors propagate the wheel of love as well and thus red is taken as an essential term in the pursuit of love.

2. Out-Of-The-Box Colours For V-Day

Don’t you think that it’s too common and so un-different wearing red while every other belle around you and your beau is wearing the same damn colour? It is really depressing. What if he mistaken the other girl with you? (Don’t worry; it’s a joke!)

Apart from this joke, there are some serious reasons as well for opting for some other colour than red such as;
1. Just think; How would you feel if the every next girl has worn the same colour and dress code as you have worn?
2. The day is not about the colour but the emotion which is not groped with any mandatory rule and regulation.
3. A day with everywhere same colour can really give you Red-Fever.
4. Obviously you must have planning to look different in the crowd and especially in front of all other belles of the town.

So, here are some really captivating colours and dresses that you can opt for this Valentine’s Day and can present a stand apart statement to all.
