A red dress can be classy, sexy and very flattering. As simple as wearing a red dress can be, it's also a little tricky when trying to put together an elegantly chic look.
Know your shades. There are many shades of red to choose from. Know which shades go best with your skin tone.
THE BEST RED SHADES FOR COOL TONES:
Look for blue-based reds such as berry red, burgundy, crimson, cherry and brick.
THE BEST RED SHADES FOR WARM TONES:
Look for orange tinted reds like cinnamon, copper, ruby, rust and scarlet.
Keep it classy and no matter what style you opt for stay confident!
Keep it simple. A red dress naturally gives a bold statement. Keep your accessories simple so that your dress is your main statement. If you like to wear statement earrings, necklaces etc. choose one to keep a balance.
You can be risky with your lip color! Matching your lip color to the dress can be very flattering. Tip: when wearing dark lipstick, keep the rest of your face simple. Vice Versa, if you wear nude lips you can go with more bold colors on the eyes.
Never underestimate the power of a good pair of heals. Your shoes are an important part of your bold statement.
Colors that collaborate well: red + black, red + gold, red + white, red + jeans and all red top to toe.
Don't forget your purse. I would recommend using a classy clutch to go with your red dress look.
