One in every 30 women in America dies of breast cancer....but a shocking one in four will die of heart disease.
The goal of The Heart Truth campaign is to make women aware of the prevalence of heart disease and point out easy steps -- like not smoking and staying active -- to help lower their risk.
What's the easiest way to show your support of the cause? It's simple: wear red!
And if you're looking for a crisp but cozy crimson piece that's perfect for February weather, try this polished sweater from Anthropologie on for size.
Why are we promoting a happy heart? It's on trend of course!
