Outfit Post: How To Wear Red

How To Wear Red
I honestly think that going all out is how to wear red. Personally I don’t like red with many other colours so I often accessorise it with, well, red! A while ago I shared my best tips for dressing an hourglass figure over at StyleFruits and this is one of the pieces I chose for them to send me to best represent my shape. The nipped in style accents the small waists of hourglass gals and the wide shoulders balance out the flared skirt that skims over my big hips and hides my (often poorly!) stomach.

Yorkshire Fashion BloggerIf red is a bit too intense for you, try dressing it down with a very neutral colour instead of black as black with red will create a very bold, colour blocking look that might make you feel even more self conscious. If red is your thing, though, just go for it! Don’t believe the lies, either; Red and green should be seen!

Of course my shoe of choice had to be The Brogue, hands down. I’d happily dress this outfit up with heels, but for a night out with a lot of walking these comfy cream brogues from H&M were ideal and give it a bit of a 50s vibe with a cute neck scarf too.

Brogues with Dresses
Red is definitely a colour to embrace, even if you have a super pale complexion like me. It’s one of my favourite colours for clothing. I’ll be taking this dress away on holiday with me in October as it’s so light and easy to wear, so I’ll let you know how I think it compares on tanned skin… hopefully. The holiday countdown is on.

    Such a cute outfit – I did genuinely think you had a bird on your hand in the first photo though before I looked closer!

    You rock red very well – I wish I could wear it more often but it always turns me into a terrible flirt :-P
