If you refer to Psychology Today, they’ll tell you that women wearing the color red have been found in studies to appear more attractive to men subconsciously. That when compared an image of a woman in red and the same woman in blue, the male test participants said they were more likely to want to date the woman in red and spend more money on the woman in red.
