  • I have never heard this, but I can see how someone could think that. Red is definitely classic in my opinion and I think if you can pull it off, you should. Red lips are really in this season, at least that's what they were saying on Style TV. Red nails aren't slutty to me. I think the deeper the red, the prettier, but that's only my opinion.

  • What? No. Red is classic.

  • Depends on how you wear it! It's a daring color so it's probably fairly easy to get a little streetwalker-ish with it, but done properly, there's no reason it should look slutty.

  • Red is am amazing color... if you were to wear bright red lipstick, red nails, red hooker boots and red fishnets... yeah it would look slutty. pay no attention to what your ex friend says... she probobly just hates herself so she feels the need to make other people feel bad.

  • I think it's kind of a regional thing. I've always seen it as a classic color...even Nancy Reagan wore red as her signature color. But I remember dating a guy from a conservative (old money) New Orleans family, who had a cow when he came to pick me up for date and saw I planned to wear a red jacket. After 15 minutes of debate, I changed to a black jacket; just to settle him down. He couldn't get past the idea that women in red were cheap. LOL

  • There is nothing wrong with wearing red, but it was used as a sign for hookers way back when. Remember the term "red light district" well, the hookers would have a red light shining in their window and wore the bright red make up as advertisement. Since then the color has had a slutty connotation, but it's classy if done well.

  • No it's classic.... it draws attention to you but isn't that the point?
