4 Cute Ways to Add Red to Your Look on Go Red for Women Day & Valentine's

'Tis the season to wear red: This Friday the 7th is the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women Day (to raise awareness about the #1 killer of women: heart disease!). And, of course, one week later is Valentine's Day. But honestly I love the idea of working some vivid color into these bleak winter days, for any reason at all ...



1. Red nail polish and/or lipstick. This shade, called "Over and Over A-Gwen," is part of the Gwen Stefani for OPI collection and it is the PERFECT red! I tried it last week and absolutely love it. It comes in a package with Swarovski crystal studs if you want to get blingy! ($13.95 at HBBeautyBar.com)

If you're looking for a ravishing red lip, I posted about some of my favorite red lipsticks around the holidays, and these are all perfect for a pretty Valentine's pout.

2. Red accessories. I am completely coveting these ultra chic Burberry sunglasses ... sigh. ($190 at SunglassHut) These oversized Vince Camuto cat-eyed sunnies are a little more in my price range. ($65 at Nordstrom)

3. A red coat! I am SO SICK of seeing everyone's BLACK outwear ... mine included! This killer designer red trench is a T.J. Maxx find. ($79.99, Tjmaxx.com for store locations)

4. A red dress. You know, every woman needs one gorgeous red dress in her wardrobe. I adore this Chaps faux-wrap dress. (On sale for $63 at Kohls.) Or we've got a great roundup of pretty red dresses under $50.

Are you planning to wear red on Friday?
