It’s no secret that wearing red will make you stand out in a crowd. Every time I wear a red dress, my husband loves to start crooning the 1986 song “Lady in Red” by Chris de Burgh. So corny I know, but this colour does have the power to make heads turn. It’s been ever so popular for the past six months so there is no shortage of great options to add to your wardrobe.
How to Wear RED
This cute red dress from the Mint Julep is loose fitting and features on-trend peplum sleeves. It makes a great choice for transitioning from cooler to warmer weather. Wear it bare legged or with tights or stockings!
Put away your silver and dig out your gold accessories when you are wearing red. These colours share the same tones, making them an easy compliment to each other. I’ve pulled out all the stops with this outfit by including a gold pendant necklace, gold bracelet, and gold sunglasses.
I wore this dress to an event a few weeks ago. Instead of these tights and boots, I wore my leopard flats! Leopard is seen as a neutral these days so go ahead and add a purse, belt or shoes to your compliment your clothing. This crossbody leopard print clutch goes with so many different outfits!
Match Your Lipstick
Do it! Nothing will give your outfit that finishing touch better than the perfect pout! Buying a red lipstick can be a little scary for some, in fear that you will buy the wrong shade for your skin. Check out a previous blog post on the Best Shades of Red -That Look Good on Everyone!
Make it Your Pop of Colour
Mix it with Pink
I remember growing up, my mom told me to never mix pink and red. Now that times have changed, I think it is my favourite combination! Keep on trend with last year’s ever-popular blush pink and this year’s crimson. And if you are feeling daring, try hot pink or magenta with red.
