Think about it: there isn’t an occasion in your life where you won’t have to wear a red dress at least once. The color red translates to a lot of meanings: it can be lucky, festive, fun, powerful, or seductive, depending on the occasion. Red is a bold color that can make a statement all on its own, and the classic image of a lady in red is not going out of style anytime soon. Plus, you'll always have a reason to cue the Jonas Brothers' Burnin' Up in your head while you sashay down the street in your eye-catching number.
See the different ways to style that red dress hanging in your closet, inspired by these celebrities’ and influencers’ outfits!
Kryz Uy is giving us some major boss vibes in this blazer dress! The deep scarlet hue signals business more than pleasure, and we love how the fit just skims over Kryz’s petite frame. Accessorizing with minimal jewelry and pinning her hair down, it’s a casually elegant look for an important meeting or a dressy dinner.
When you have a classic red dress like Camille Co’s, you don’t need to do much. Camille lets the dress speak for itself with its thigh-high slit andoff-shoulder cut. To finish her effortless look, she teamed the dress with gold heels. A perfect pairing considering gold and red's a classic combination to try especially when you're in doubt.
Here’s another take on that old Hollywood-style red dress! Got an event to attend? Don't hold back and channel screen siren vibes like Anne Curtis, who looks divine in this halter dress with a sweetheart neckline.
Liz Uy is known for her fashion choices that bring on maximum impact. However, for this pared-down 'fit Liz is wearing, the devil is in the details. This cherry-colored Nanushka cut-out dress is made of vegan leather and is paired with an Elleme fur bag in blush. The stylist draws all the attention to her red number with the help of a barely-there makeup.
