Its official! Women in red are more attractive to men
Experts have found that women dressed in red are more attractive to men.
According to a study in China, the color, which is associated with romance, passion, lust and fertility, boosts a woman's sex appeal and makes her appear "warmer" and more competent, the Daily Express reported.
The lead author of the study conducted at Wuhan University in Hubei province, psychologist Dr Fangfang Wen, said that the color red was found to have a boosting effect on the sexual attractiveness of women with feminine facial traits.
Wen added that wearing red clothes is often viewed as a reflection of the sexual intention of the wearer from the beginning.
The study also found that though the color red, which is quite popular on the red carpet, improves men's attractiveness to women, too much of it could be seen as aggressive.
The study was published in the online journal Evolutionary Psychology.
