    There no such absolute prohibition.

    As far as Ahadith on wearing red colour are concerned, there are many narrations in which Prophet (sws) was himself seen wearing red colour and then there are some in which people narrate its prohibition from the Prophet (sws). Therefore, from hadith corpus nothing can be said conclusively.

    Secondly, as a principle, not every hadith falls within scope of religion. After study of the whole religion and its sources, it can be said that only things that can be religion belong to the following category:

    1) They must relate to ibadah

    2) Must relate to purity/tazkiya of body

    3) Must relate to purity/tazkiya of food

    4) Must relate to purity/tazkiya of soul (ikhlaqi tazkiya)

    Lastly, the principles of determining haram/halal (other than dietary restrictions) have been laid out explicitly in the Quran itself (7:33). Therefore, all these kind of prohibitions that we find in ahadith relating to men wearing gold,silk, isbal izar (hanging of trouser below ankles) etc. are all practical applications of the laid out principle mentioned in Quran. The same would be the case for red or other colours, if any such prohibition ever occurred (regarding which ahadith have a lot of contradictions).

    The Principles of halal/haram as mentioned in Quran can be watched here with details:
