5. Red Sweater Dress

From the first frosts and even in the middle of the polar cold, in the heart of winter, the long-sleeved red sweater dress becomes your best friend. Bright in the middle of the greyness, it envelops you in a wave of softness to face bad weather in all circumstances. Its soft and comfortable material is also breathable thanks to hypoallergenic wool or cashmere wool.

Turtleneck or round neckline, the ribbed knit elongates your silhouette with its vertical lines and ensures a fitted cut without being tight. Comfort and elegance are the hallmarks of these three red sweater dresses. We love wearing them with sheer fleece, fleece or slip-on nylon tights .

The red shirt dress structures your silhouette with a sophisticated buttoned collar and neckline. But this model tempers the strict side of the shirt.

What color nail polish to wear with a red dress?

Unless you find the exact same shade of nail polish as your red dress (like Dita Von Teese and Anne Hathaway below), best to avoid red nail polish with this outfit. It's the guaranteed fashion faux pas.

On the other hand, we will be able to recognize your good taste with a nude manicure with beige or pink nail polish (like Zoe Saldana). The French manicure in the same tones is also a great idea to steal from Selena Gomez.

Of course, rockers will like the black or dark gray varnish, in keeping with the leather biker jacket or the shoes.

What shoes to wear with a red dress?

Again, it all depends on the style of your outfit. For a wedding, a cocktail or a chic festive event, think of pumps or sandals with nude heels that lengthen your legs. Or metallic shades like silver, gold and even copper. Provided you wear jewelry in the same shades only.

On vacation or at the beach, have fun with flat or heeled sandals in camel, nude and even colorful tones.

At the office or in streetwear, you can accessorize your red dress with pretty white sneakers for an offbeat effect, flat or heeled black or camel ankle boots or chic sandals in the same colors for the summer season. A bag in the same tones will complete your outfit with class.

What bag to wear with a red dress?

White, beige, gray or black are timeless essentials. They can be adorned with lace, pearls or sequins for more glamour.

Do you like to stand out? Opt for a colored bag in a color other than red: electric blue, emerald green, canary yellow. Adopt the quirky look even in the choice of shoes and your makeup. But be careful: this style must be skillfully mastered so as not to turn you into a scarecrow in the middle of the carnival.

On a daily basis, the brown or black leather shoulder bag is a must have. The streetwear look will gladly adopt a small backpack, while a basket or a large bag in cotton lace will hold all your belongings for the beach or vacation.

Can you wear a red dress to a wedding?

You are invited to a wedding

You can naturally wear a red dress to a wedding, especially if you have a leading role as the mother of the bride, her sister, her best man or her bridesmaid. To avoid attracting all eyes on you (it's the day of the newlyweds, after all), think of burgundy red or coral red, very chic and more sober than scarlet red, while remaining cheerful and the warmth of red.

As for the style of dress, avoid plunging necklines and very sophisticated dresses with drapes, ruffles or frills (to be reserved for the bride). Favor the bustier, the Bardot or boat neck and a relatively sober style for the bottom of the dress which, once is not custom, can go down to the feet. To be comfortable while dancing, opt for a dress that is loose and light from the knees or short (just above the knees but not shorter)

If your forms are generous, it is better to avoid shiny materials such as silk or satin which mark the slightest relief of shadow and light not always well placed.

you are the bride

Astonishing, surprising, flamboyant, the red wedding dress breaks with tradition in favor of a declaration of love to Love. Treat yourself to a red wedding dress with a strapless or empire waist, with lace, drapes or even ruffles on the skirt.

To be comfortable in all circumstances, from the ceremony to the ball, avoid the sheath dress which jams your legs as well as the tube dress to the feet which considerably reduces your movements and keeps you very warm. Think volume, lightness and why not, asymmetry (short in front below the knees and long behind).

Red dress: you know everything! Have fun...

Casual red dress or red wedding dress, red dress at the beach or at the office, you now know that the beautiful red dress adapts to your morphology in all circumstances.

You now hold all the keys to shine in a red dress!

It's up to you to find the right red dress that matches your tastes, your personality, your silhouette and will reveal the message you want to convey (or not if you want to be quiet at the beach on vacation).
