Festive and Edgy.

If you’ve got a special dinner planned this week, or this season, what better way to shine than with a color that pops? Red! And not just any red, but fire-engine, going to set the roof on fire kind of red. With a slimming, hip-hugging fit, you can rock a bold color like this. Materials like ponte will also accentuate chest and hips, while bringing in your waist and plumping up your bum. A length that fits anywhere from just above or just below your knee is conservative and still sexy, and if it’s cold outside, it’ll be more practical to wear.

As for accessories, keep the bold colors exclusively to the dress. With this bright red dress I’ve chosen some low nude pumps (to save my feet!) and a nude colored clutch with gold trim. My bracelets are also gold to match the bag’s trim. And pearls! You can never go wrong with a good pearl necklace! This dress isn’t overly conservative or overly revealing, but wearing a pearl necklace gives it just enough to make it look classy and ready for that fancy night out to dinner. Overall, subdued accessories compliment a dress like this well.

But let’s be real here. A black leather jacket 100% completes this outfit! The dress and the jacket are pretty wild, while the accessories, shoes, and jewelry keep everything from being too wild. It’s the perfect outfit to wear for a nice dinner and then a night out with friends!
