Wearing red on your birthday can be a little cheesy, but if you’re going to do it, you might as well go all out.
Here’s how to do it, as shown by British-Indian singer and actress Preeya Kalidas. Simply choose your best red dress, swipe on your go-to red shade of lipstick, give your nails a slick of some red polish, and, while you’re at it, finish the look with red shoes. Don’t forget the confident attitude that’s key to pulling off a daring outfit such as this!
