Considered an emotionally intense color, red exudes power and energy. On the other hand, it perfectly combines passion and danger. Therefore, having at least one red clothing article in your wardrobe truly helps you make a fashion statement. Whether we are talking about a pair of pants, a jacket, a blouse or a red, the reality is that when it comes to wearing any red piece of clothing, you panic because you have no idea how to accessorize it. In fact, there are so many other doubts crossing your mind that you even ask yourself if having multiple red pieces in the wardrobe is really worth the investment because you do not know how to select and wear them properly. Thus, you are afraid that you will probably just keep them in there for the rest of your life: looking, but not daring to wear them. Indeed, you do have to master the color psychology and follow certain rules when wearing red, but this should not stop you from making that fashion statement.
Master the basics: shade, cut and style
Starting with the basics, you have to understand that factors like shade, cut and style are extremely important when wearing red dresses. In order to make sure that you choose the right shade of red, you have to assess your skin tone. Do you have a warm, cool or neutral skin tone? An important piece of information that you should always keep in mind is that red represents the warmest color. Ruby red looks excellent on a cool skin tone while deep red complements warm skin tone. If you are neutral then rejoice because you can get away with any shade. In what concerns the cut and style, you have to determine your body type. Only then, you will be able to understand why a longer dress flatters you more than a short one and the other way around. After becoming familiar with these vital details, you can move on to the main subject of interest, namely accessorizing.
Master the art of accessorizing: black, gold and silver
Accessorizing does not only include jewelry, but also footwear. According to the occasion, you fist need to decide if you want to opt for something very elegant like heels or for something more casual like sandals or flats. Most women who are in doubt resort to the most classic combination – red and black so you could never go wrong with a pair of black shoes. However, if your intention is to stand out from the crowd, then you should not hesitate when it comes to taking risks. Add a pair of metallic gold shoes to your strikingly red dress and you will captivate all the eyes in the room. Apart from gold, you can also choose silver, white and nude footwear. In fact, you can resort to the same color for jewelry because they go well with any shade of red. Nevertheless, you should not resume only to rings, bracelets and earrings when you can gracefully add a black belt to accentuate your tiny waist.
