February 1st will mark National Wear Red Day®, a campaign that encourages everyone to wear red to bring awareness to women’s heart health. Heart disease is the #1 leading cause of death among women, and since the red dress has now become synonymous with heart health, I thought I’d look all over the web to find some of my favorite dresses and hopefully, inspire you to wear red on Friday. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so you can recycle your red ensemble for a special date night or anti-Valentine’s Day night out with the girls. Note: Men can participate too by wearing a red tie or shirt.
Friday, February 3, 2012, will mark National Wear Red Day®, an annual event that encourages Americans to wear red as a symbol of their support for women’s heart health awareness. In February 2003, The Heart Truth® campaign launched the Red Dress as the national symbol to inspire women to take better care of their cardiovascular health, and to build awareness of heart disease among woman. Heart disease is often perceived as something than mainly affects men; however, it is actually the leading cause of death among women. Since the red dress has now become synonymous with heart health, I thought I’d look all over the web to find some of my favorite dresses and hopefully, inspire you to wear red on Friday. After you flaunt your sexy silhouette in a fabulous red dress, you can hang onto it to wear in a few weeks…Valentine’s Day is right around the corner😉
Note: Men can participate too by wearing a red tie or shirt.
The American Heart Association is encouraging everyone to wear red this Friday, February 4th (National Wear Red Day), as part of their Go Red For Women movement. By wearing red, you are showing support for the campaign, which aims to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease. But, this Friday is not the only day you can participate in the movement; the campaign encourages everyone to organize their very own Wear Red Day. There are numerous ways you can participate, and the website offers many fun tips such as asking the men in your life to wear something red, or organizing a day where all your friends wear the rosy hue to the office. My suggestion for supporting this movement is to buy a little red dress to wear out this month. The signature logo for the AHA’s campaign is a red dress, after all. Plus, it just may be the perfect outfit to wear when you go out with your sweetie or group of girlfriends this Valentine’s Day. Below are a few suggestions, including an INC International Concepts Dress, which for every purchase, Macy’s will donate 5% of the sale price to the AHA’s Go Red For Women movement.
Also, from Feb. 2nd-6th if you wear red to any Macy’s store, you will receive 20% off!
