You can also add red with your accessories but for executive presence, a one-piece bold red
dress is the ultimate power colour.

If you are worried about wearing red, trust me: every woman can wear red. It’s knowing which
one is the ‘correct red’ for your skin undertone so that you wear the colour, and it doesn’t
CWC style tip:
If you have a warm skin undertone, think of strawberries. And yellow-based reds.
If you have a cool skin undertone, think of raspberries. And blue-based reds.
If you have a neutral skin undertone, you can wear any red.
Most skin undertones will suit True reds which have a balance of yellow and blue bases.
How to tell which skin undertone you have?
A warm skin undertone: it will be golden and peachy. You may have freckles and gold flecks in your eyes.
A cool skin undertone: it will be more pink or bluish; you’re unlikely to have freckles.
A neutral skin undertone: it will be neither warm or cool, but a mix.
