Red has long been called the color of love, and science proves it. A psychologist at the University of Rochester released a study that asserts men think women wearing red are more open to advances. “It doesn’t have to be a red dress or a sexy outfit,” the study’s author Adam Pazda told ScienceNow and Wired. “It can be a red T-shirt.” The science comes down to biological primate signals, with the color being one that gives men a “time to make your move” feeling.
