As part of my contribution to Project Rainbow Cameo, I will be attempting red. It's bold but it's pretty easy. Red is a color every woman should embrace. It is daunting for many but I guarantee you once you go red, you will not go back! Here's a few looks I've come up with.
I always love a dress that has something interesting to it. When I first laid eyes on it, I just know I had to have it. It is not easy to find a dress that is blinged yet playful. It is usually glam but not this one. It's perfect for a cocktail party (not that I have any to go to). Bottom line is, it looks good. Also, I matched my lipstick to my dress color. Never be afraid to do so. After all, it's not a crime. A tip on how to wear a dress with this cut is to wear a structured school girl skirt underneath to give it some 'volume' and give it some shape so that it does not look 'flat'.
Dress: Elle Girl
Wedged booties: Vincci
Again, another interesting neckline. I've had this for years now and it still looks amazing. I love this dress as it is very classy and very corporate looking. If you are working, you could try this out if your occupation allows it. If not, as a dress for other occasions is perfectly fine. Most important of all, WEAR THE CORRECT UNDERGARMENTS. These fitting fits calls for seamless panties. All too often I see girls wearing a gorgeous, fitting dress and then the outline of their underwear betrayed it.
Dress: Mango Suits
Belt: Hand-me-down from my mom
Lastly, a more casual look. I like a little boho chic style. The shoes aren't exactly red. They have a little orange undertone to it. But let's pass it as red. It is always a good idea to have one outstanding colored shoes to give a 'pop' of color to your outfit. No tips for this look.
Wedges: Island Shop
And there you have it, my take on Red. Do check out the others for project Rainbow Cameo which I will update on after this. Stay tuned!
