The old saying goes, when in doubt wear red! When it comes to timeless fashion and styling tricks, wearing a red outfit or a bold red lipstick trumps any other fashion hack any given day. There is something about this color that instantly makes a woman feel more confident and stylish in her own skin. However, not all women are comfortable in pulling red as an everyday outfit. If you are one of those ladies, you are in luck today.
Here are some of the most gorgeous and effortless ways to style a red dress in your everyday routine:
#1 A Touch of Velvet
The fall/winter fashion trends for 2020 have been a homage to the old Hollywood glam; the love for luxurious soft velvet had made a strong and sound comeback. For an evening of festivities, nothing would beat a knee-length velvet dress with sweetheart neckline. A diamond clustered necklace around the neck; a pin-up makeup look; red velvet court shoes and a slick hairstyle would be the ‘it’ looks for the festive season to come.
#2 A Little Red Dress with White Trainers
Who says you can’t roam around the market or the streets in a red outfit? Well – you absolutely can! You just need to learn how to style it well. Pull out that red dress from your wardrobe that you had been telling yourself was too loud for an everyday outfit. Layer a military jacket on top. Tie your hair in a ponytail. Finish the look with simple trustee white trainers. There you have an excellent way to incorporate a red dress into your everyday routine.
#3 Wear it with a T-shirt
In case you want to extend the life of your summer/spring clothes; you can transition them to fall. A red dress with spaghetti straps for instance could be worn on top of a full sleeved white or black t-shirt. For an additional texture and style, you can swap the simple basic tee with stripes or plaids. Pair it with long boots and you are ready for the fall evening out.
#4 Red Florals
Are you intimidated with an all-red ensemble? Do you feel it would be a little too much for you? Do you simply feel red isn’t your color? Try giving red florals a go to begin with. A floral dress with red base would radiate a casual and laid-back style. You can wear it with black shoes and bag to further tone down the look.
