Men tipped the waitresses at least 15% more if they wore red as compared to the same waitress wearing a different color.

So, the amount of tip varied with the color of the dress worn by the waitress- the color red attracted the highest tip.

The researchers wrote: 'As red color has no negative effect on women customers, it could be in their interest to wear red clothes at work.'
