ONE: Choose a tone that flatters your skin. Fair skin tone: bright or an orange red. Medium skin tone: a rich red is best. Dark skin tone: a cool blue red, this is one with a cooler undertone vs. the warmer undertones.
TWO: Choose a style you are confident in. Whether this is an off the shoulder, fit and flare design, pencil skirt, or a mix of them. When you are confident in what you are wearing, it shows. Ask a friend too!
THREE: For a more classic take, opt to either show more leg or more shoulder. One or the other keeps you on the classic side! This dress came almost to my knees which balanced the off the shoulder!
FOUR: Don’t be afraid to match your lipstick with it! I LOVE a red lip with a red statement piece. This ties in the color for your entire outfit. You can slightly smoke your eyes out for an evening look or keep it super creamy for a more daytime appropriate look.
FIVE: Accessories, keep them simple! I went with a black strappy heel and a fun statement earring. To complete the look, I would wear a black clutch and a black pea coat. This makes your dress be the statement! If you want to wear a bold necklace vs. a bold earring, that totally works as well. One or the other for balance.
Here is a sneak peek of another glam Christmas outfit I have coming this week!
