We're all aware of the little black dress, a staple in any woman's wardrobe, but here's something new, fun, and colorful: the little red dress. A vivid red dress can catch the eye, turn heads, and make you look and feel as glamorous as a Hollywood actress is airbrushed to be. Best of all? Little red dresses go with all sorts of accessories: gold or silver jewelry, black shoes and purses, and so on. Make it yours!
Keep your make-up simple. A little blush on your cheeks and a smoky eye can create an attractive look, but don't overdo it. When accessorizing a red dress, you will need your choice of a purse, accessories and shoes. Look great in your red dress with advice from the editor-in-chief of a fashion magazine in this free video on accessorizing.
Opt for red lipstick over other shades. It doesn't have to be fire engine red, but a red tint to your lips can help coordinate your make-up with your dress. If red lipstick seems a little much for the occasion, try a clear or nude gloss, instead.
Many women may hesitate to match red accessories with a red dress, while many others may do so haphazardly. Red can be worn with red, however, as long as you play with different shades and textures to keep things interesting.
A red dress can be a bold fashion statement, but if worn well, it can create a look that seems both classic and seductive. When you choose accessories to wear with your dress, stick with simple, unobtrusive pieces that add a little interest and contrast without drawing too much attention. Keep your dress the focal point of your outfit.
