Holiday Fashion – Wear Red Shoes
It’s a no-brainer to wear a little black dress (LBD) to a party. Almost all women have one and it’s easy to buy one if you don’t already own one. You can find a LBD in virtually every shape and at every price point. It’s almost impossible to look bad in a LBD unless you buy one that doesn’t fit well or that is made from fabric that cuts and binds.
As with any clothes you purchase, always view yourself in the clothes from every angle you can, and sit in a chair in front of a mirror to see how you look from that position. If you’re covering your legs with your hands, or tugging at the hem, then the dress/skirt is too short and likely too tight. You should never feel the need to struggle to keep your clothes in the proper place on your body and if you do then they don’t fit.
Accessories can be very important when you wear a LBD. Watch out for too many accessories if the dress has any embellishments. The purpose of a LBD is to give you a sleek and flattering profile, and if you muck it up with too many bangles and beads then you’re self-defeating. If you must add some extra flash then do it with a purse or even better a pair of shoes.
In fact, that’s the hot trend this holiday season – a bright red pair of shoes! As you can see in the pictures of actresses Rose McGowan and Mandy Moore, a red pair of high heel pumps is the perfect foil for a LBD. Sure, there are any number of colored shoes you can wear with a LBD – it’s a versatile piece of clothing. But, to be on trend this holiday season ditch the metallic and the animal prints and go for some hot red heels. While we don’t necessarily recommend this for day wear, we can tell you that you will be a show-stopper at your next evening event if you pair your LBD with some ruby red shoes!
