Fashion rules were meant to be broken. There’s perhaps no better example of this than the idea that redheads cannot wear the color red.

For redheads, however, there’s a whole new set of constraints. The first unspoken rule of the ginger sisterhood is that those of the auburn/strawberry/mahogany (et al.) persuasion are not to wear red—EVER.
