Happy Hump Day, everyone! To get over the hump, I am sharing a red lace dress that is perfect for the holidays–and beyond. Red is a big color this year, not just for Christmas, so a red dress or top is a great choice for any occasion.
This red lace dress came in my last Stitch Fix box. My stylist also chose some very cute neutral heels, but unfortunately, my right foot isn’t quite ready for the style she sent. I was able to put on my basic black kitten heels–and I could even walk in them, at least for a short time. Woohoo!
Red Lace Dress Outfit
While I know that many stylists are advocating for neutral shoes and accessories, with a red like this, black shoes and accessories just feel right to me. What do you think?
This dress has all the elements of current trends, with the lace fabric, the bell sleeves, and the color. It’s also a great fitting dress!
A black clutch was my choice for a bag. You can spend a lot on small evening bags, but you can find some very cute ones at very inexpensive prices, like this similar one here.
Do you usually take a wrap along to an evening event? I almost always do, as wedding and party venues tend to keep the rooms chilly. So, here I am carrying my cashmere wrap. I spent a bit more on this and let me tell you, it has been worth every penny! I bought this before we went on our cruise to Dubai last fall, and I used this all over this ship, in the airplane and on land. It is soft and warm and just right when it’s a bit chilly. I even take mine to the movies where they really tend to run the air-conditioning on high! Mine is by Caslon, from Nordstrom, and you can see one like it here (in gray) and here. (Both versions are on sale!) If there is someone special on your list to buy a gift for, this might be it! Or, pick one up for yourself. Honestly, you will love it!
I added a little bling with a black statement necklace and earrings. This set is from Talbots from two years ago that I use often. They have some beautiful statement pieces there! Here is a similar version, on sale.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again! If you want to make a statement–wear red! It is known to be an attraction to others. It doesn’t have to be super revealing and can really make you stand out. Try it and see!
Thanks for stopping by my post today! I hope you’ll come by tomorrow to see some more holiday inspiration!
