For instance, you can wear a red shirt with navy blue, blue, black or beige bottoms. You can even wear red bottoms with any mild coloured top.
Furthermore, you can as well blend with white. Red combined with white can serve as a good outfit for Valentine’s day. When doing this, your red should be the main colour while white only complement it.
