When red and black defined Valentine’s Day

Red and black combo. Reminds you of Valentine’ Day, right? Red and black go well together, but they are not the only colour combinations for the day.

There are several other colours like blue, green, yellow, white, pink and orange, which can be teamed, and will still symbolise Valentine’s. However, beware of their meanings.

Red means already in love (no wonder it’s a favourite); green means I am waiting; white (I am committed); pink (proposal accepted), blue (love applications invited), black (proposal rejected); or orange (going to propose).

As a single person, you can wear an emerald green body-hugging dress. The woman in love can decide to wear red and white. There are many combinations to try out.

For now,  enjoy pictures of people who wore the ‘tired’ red and black combination and gave us a feel of Valentine’s Day.
