Date Night | Party “Red”-y

Red Haute // MSL

With the holiday party season about to peak, consider adding extra pizzazz to your nighttime look with a fiery Little Red Dress. If you’re a faithful MSL follower, you know that the LBD ranks at the top of our must-own list…but trust us, we have no problem putting black on reserve to make room for red.

Red is a power color for a reason – when a lady in red strides confidently into a party, people sit up and take notice. This striking color has a flattering hue for everyone and makes it more fun to become your own fashion doppelganger. We see some serious sizzle in your future.

Complete your Look:

Metallics! Bronze, silver, graphite and gold all compliment red beautifully. Choose one, then carry your favorite megawatt metallic hue as a theme through your jewelry, shoes and bag.

-An embellished shoe or clutch makes a bold statement with a simple red dress. However, if your dress is festooned with jewels, lace, beads or a fancy pattern, keep your accessories on the simple side and let your dress make the statement. Rich materials like exotic skins are good choices to keep your look luxe.

-Black and red. For a more edgy look, style your LRD with a rock-inspired cuff and double ankle-strap, gold and black suede evening sandals.

-Don’t forget the icing on the cake! What’s more glamorous than glittering jewels with red? Options abound at all price points. Again, the “less is more” rule applies when your dress is already embellished or a statement on its own. You can’t ever go wrong with a fabulous cocktail ring which is the perfect finishing touch.
