Forget the little black dress, it’s a great red dress you want in your wardrobe for those unexpected special occasions and especially when wondering what to wear for parties in the run up to Christmas
Red remains this year’s hottest colour and it’s still the number one choice for a head-turning outfit. You will find a selection of gorgeous red dresses on the high street right now, so it’s the perfect time to invest.
This will depend on your style personality as well as your body shape. Red is such a bold colour that a simple piece can look amazing with the right accessories. On the other hand, you might want an opulent dress in luxurious fabrics with gorgeous details. It’s all down to your personal taste. And what suits you of course. Here are some ideas for you.
Classic Personality – You prefer traditional and understated looks. A simple jersey, shift or tea dress (depending on your body shape) with a little detail would be a good staple for you.
Dramatic Personality – You like to create striking looks with the latest fashions and you are not afraid to stand out. So, now is the season to go full on!
Romantic Personality – You like pretty, feminine fabrics and detail. The feel of the fabric will also apeal to you. Floor length and floaty chiffon or delicate lace is perfect for you.
City Chic Personality – You follow trends rather than street fashion. You like to coordinate and look immaculate at all times. Meryl Streep takes a simple shirt dress style in luxurious fabric, belts it and coordinates with black accessories, and the obligatory film star sunglasses of course. Very simple but very stylish. With your fabulous sense of style, you could take a simple dress and make it look ultra chic by accessorising it to your liking.
Creative Personality – You like unusual finds and mixing up pieces to create your own look. You might find a vintage piece, or combine different fabrics and pattern. You could team it with a sumptuous satin or fur jacket.
Natural Personality – You’re not a huge fan of dressing up and are happiest in jeans and comfortable clothes. If you have to wear a dress you want it to be unfussy and comfy! Try wearing a simple dress, minimal accessories and easy updo for hair.
..And the perfect lipstick
If you are wearing red lipstick with your great new dress try and get the lip colour just right. As you will have chosen the right shade of red dress for your colouring (naturally!) you need a lipstick colour close to that or a just a shade lighter. You don’t want the lips to clash with your dress, you want a colour that complements your dress.
Alternatively, if you are going for bold eye make-up then your lip colour should be very pale or nude.
