    In honor of Valentine's Day, this week's challenge is to wear one of Style Forums most disliked colors. Who can wear red best? We're talking about red. Not pink or burgundy. And we're talking about wearing red proudly. Not hidden away as some tertiary color in a tie or pocket square. Make red look good.

    Outfits must be from this week. Good luck. Polls open on Saturday 2/17.

    Interesting. Don't know if I have any items that qualify though.

    Misspelling of Solaro.

    Gotcha. Solaro goes well with red? I can see that.

    Do you actively dislike red or does your lack of red items come as a surprise?

    I assume a fit with red socks is not a valid entry?

    Well, Solaro is literally red, as in the red thread will show as the cloth moves, giving that lovely "British person has met the Australian sun" effect we all know and love. It is also quite showy, meeting your second condition.

    I don't own any unfortunately, or that'd be my entry. My only non-tie red item is a cashmere V neck. One tough challenge you gave us!

    Solid red socks would be passable. Not really what I had in mind, but it’ll do.
