Over the last few weeks, I’ve shared holiday outfit options for every occasion. Black lace and black watch plaid are always great options, but what if red is really your holiday calling? As it should be! Nothing says Christmas like the perfect red dress.
There is something about red that just makes me feel bold and confident. It’s such a vibrant color, conveying all the Christmas feels. Since a red dress makes such a statement on its own, I usually pair it with neutrals. Certainly helps that these nude heels have a little pop of red on their soles too! Don’t hesitate to take bold to the next level, and sprinkle in some sparkle, metallics or even leopard print!
Now before you run off to find the perfect red dress, there are a few things you need to be mindful of: hair color, eye color and skin tone. Because reds can have different undertones, its important to find the right shade for you. Hold up different reds to your face and see if cooler (blue-based) or warmer (yellow-based) reds brighten up your skin tone. Usually darker skin tones do well with warmer reds and fairer skin tones work best with cooler reds.
There is still plenty of time to get the perfect holiday red dress (or to get a head start on New Years or Valentine’s Day)! Shop some of my favorites below…
