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 wraps you in the softness of its warm knit to face bad weather. Its soft and comfortable material is also breathable thanks to hypoallergenic wool or cashmere wool.
Rolled neck or round neckline, the ribbed knit of our red sweater dresses 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 knit dresses. We love to wear them with transparent fleece, fleece or slip-on nylon tights.

How to accessorize a red dress?
What jacket with a red dress?
It all depends on the style of your ruby dress, of course. But two timeless classics are safe bets that will accompany your superb dress as well as all your other outfits: the beige trench coat and the black blazer jacket. If you're looking for contrast, bet on a black leather perfecto.

Nail polish and red dress
Unless you can find the exact same shade of nail polish as your scarlet dress, best to avoid red nail polish: fashion faux pas assured. On the other hand, a nude manicure with beige or pink nail polish is the height of good taste. Rockers will love the black or anthracite gray varnish, in keeping with the leather biker jacket or the shoes.
What shoes to wear with a red dress?
For a cocktail party or a chic festive event, accessorize your red dress with nude pumps or beige heeled sandals to elongate your legs. Metallic shades like silver, gold, and copper are great alternatives, but in this case your jewelry should match the color of your shoes.
On vacation or at the beach, have fun with flat or heeled sandals in camel, nude and even colorful tones. Avoid white (cheap) and black (too serious).
At the office or in streetwear, you can accompany your ruby dress with pretty white sneakers for an offbeat effect, flat or heeled black or camel ankle boots or chic sandals in the same colors in summer. 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: so many timeless colors that perfectly complement a strong color such as red. For a festive occasion, your neutral colored bag can be adorned with lace, beads or sequins for added 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.
Every day, the minimalist bag in brown or black leather is a must have. The streetwear look will gladly adopt a small backpack, while a basket in natural fibers 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?
Red wedding guest dress
You can naturally wear a red dress to a wedding, especially if you have a leading role like 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 shapes are generous, it is better to avoid shiny materials such as silk or satin which mark the slightest relief of shadow and light that are not always well placed.
Red wedding dress
Amazing, surprising, flamboyant, the red wedding dress breaks with tradition in favor of a declaration of love to Love. Treat yourself to a strapless or empire waist wedding dress, 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 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.
