Wear It With Confidence

Red is for those who is confident and like extra attention. If you are not sure about red outfits try some chunky statement accessories, footwear and handbags and see how it goes. A skirt, top or a jacket paired with black or gray can is a further step toward wearing red outfits. If you wear red with basic black then black pieces don’t necessarily have to be too plain, but also make sure they are no overdone so you don’t look garish.

Red Outerwear

Red outerwear makes you instantly noticeable so keep the rest of your outfit tame while placing the focus on the red outerwear. The black and red combo is hard to beat but you can also try midnight blue or gray in your outfit if you want to try something new.

All In Red

An all-red outfit is hard to pull off but if you must let it be a flowing evening gown or a streamlined pant suit or stylish jumpsuit with a cut that makes you look taller. A flowing midi dress is also a great way to sport this trend. Don’t be afraid to match your lipstick to your outfit but be sure your shade of red lipstick suits your skin tone and hair color as well.
