Wearing red can really feel glaring and may seem like the wearer is calling for attention. Thing is, red does have that effect so sporting a red ball gown properly is an art.
We’ll share tips on how to wear a red dress without looking like Santa Claus or a tree. If you get the basics, you’ll be able to wear a red dress confidently.
Wearing a red ball gown
If you think red is just not your style, start small. Test how red affects your personal style start with wearing a red blouse or incorporating a red brooch. Use a red clutch with neutral colored clothes until you feel comfortable wearing a red dress. Also, don’t try to mix red with bright colored accessories. Yellow and green are colors to avoid when wearing red as it contrasts badly.
Another tip is to avoid going red all over. Red makes a bold statement but don’t overdo it by wearing a red dress with red shoes, lipstick partnered with a red bag. That’ll just look very bad. You may wear red lipstick but make sure to wear a different shade from your dress.
When wearing a red dress, wear something decent and classic. The color is bold enough so you don’t need to wear plunging necklines or backless dresses. The less skin you show, the better. Keep your jewelry minimal as well as your makeup. Go for natural or neutral makeup so you don’t create too much focal point in your whole attire. Lastly, pair shoes with metallic shades or printed shoes. Choose between strappy sandals or black pumps. They’ll both look great with a red ball gown.
