How to wear red for V Day and beyond

I have a crush on red lately. I wrote a similar post in the fall. I think the subject deserves to be addressed again for spring. I will admit, until recently I had no interest in wearing red and I was wrong. I find Vermeer’s painting “The girl with the red hat” elegant and inspiring and I’m in love with Monet’s poppies.
