Your precious red dress can turn you into a major head turner but to avoid going overboard keep everything else minimal. When pairing a red piece with something else, always keep the other colours very basic. Our current favourites are tan or white, be it shoes, belt or clutch.  If you want to play around with ideas, take advantage of the current print trend or something with black and white in it.

Red shoes and accessories can glam up any boring outfit if worn right. Wearing red shoes with too many colours could be a mistake but when you pair it with your go-to LBD it can re-energize your outfit. We recommend a maximum of 2 red accessories per outfit.

The ever-popular red lip is your go-to look if you want to glam things up. Pair a red lipstick with matte skin, neutral eyes and subtle shimmer to get an instant uplift be it day or night. There are tons of shades of red out there, so see what works best with your complexion. Diffused around the edges and stained in the center, blood red lips are the hottest make-up trend of the year.

Red always makes a statement no matter how you wear it, so on Valentine’s Day channel your inner diva and paint the town red.

Stay red hot... stay stylish...
