How to Accessorize a Red Dress

If you are one of those women who love red, a color that is both strong and feminine, learn how to wear it and take full advantage of it. Della gives you her advice today on how to accessorize the little red dress. Let's look at the shoes, handbags, and other accessories that best suit you and your personal style. Wear a red dress and you will become THE femme fatale: sexy or elegant, classic or sophisticated.


Combine a dress with: shoes

All colors and styles of shoes can be worn with a red dress. However, the most recommended colors are black, gold, silver, and red. You can also wear patterned shoes if you want to be fancy or daring. However, if all women can wear a red dress, you should consider the event for which you are wearing a red dress:

For an outing: if you want to have a good time on the dance floor, if you are invited to a party, or if you are just going out, be bold. Dare to wear animal patterns (very fashionable) that will give you a look that is both sexy and fun.

To be on the cutting edge of elegance: for a meeting or a slightly more formal event, you should aim for elegance and sophistication at all costs. Natural and sober colors such as nude or black will give you the perfect look for this kind of occasion.

It is not recommended to combine a red dress with blue, green, or brown shades. These colors do not usually go with red tones. If you are in doubt and are looking for these tones, it is better to choose accessories rather than shoes to finish your look with small touches of color. See our detailed article on shoes.

Combine a red dress with: a handbag

Handbags, like shoes and other accessories, are an essential complement to the little red dress. If your dress is made from a smooth fabric, a patterned handbag will give a trendy and fun touch to your look. However, red is a powerful and vivid color, so we recommend that you choose a small handbag, so as not to downplay the importance of your dress. For the color of the handbag, follow the same advice as for shoes: black, gold, silver, or nude are perfect shades to wear with a red dress.

Combine a red dress with accessories

The belt is a great accessory that can add a unique and personal touch to any look. If you have a large collection of belts, you will have different styles, distinctive from each other, with just one dress. Remember the colors recommended above when choosing your belt. Jewelry is another accessory that should not be neglected. However, when you wear a red dress, it is best not to wear too much jewelry, because the color red is what gets most of the attention. Therefore, we recommend that you choose jewelry in red tones, combined with gold and silver.
