How I style // Red Dresses

You guys probably know by now that I love red dresses. I think they're so lovely and quite easy to wear as long as you keep the rest of the outfit minimal.  As red is pretty bold I usually go for black or, if your feeling bold, I think blue and red are two colours that match quite well. Anyway, I was asked to put together a sort of How I would Style / Wishlist post featuring some lovely dresses from New Look and thought it could give you guys some ideas too.

Office Wear, a.k.a I need to look smart but I still wanna stand out y'know what I'm saying?
In a New York Minute
Dress - New Look; here
Bag & Heels - Zara
Notebook - Topshop
Lipstick - Chanel Rouge (or just any red lipstick if you're a pauper like myself!)
I think this is my favourite look. I just love the simplicity of it as even though you've got the bold colour, everything else is left quite minimal which I like.

Day out, a.k.a I'm off to town for lunch with the girls
Red Dress - New Look; here
Boots & Hat - H&M
Sunglasses -Ray-Ban
Moustache notebook - Urban Outfitters

 I quite like this off the shoulder dress! I don't own any myself but I think it's quite playful and easy to layer up with a jacket of some sort. I also thought this hat would go nicely with this dress and complete the over-all look I was trying to go for which was 'oh hey, I'm just going to Paris for lunch with the girls...' or something to that effect ha!

Night out, a.k.a Time to hit the town oooooh yeahPaint the town red
Dress - New Look; here
Leather Jacket - River Island
Necklace: H&M
Boots - Zara (how gorgeous are they?!)
Lipstick - RiRi Woo
Bronzer/Blusher - Nars

 Lastly, I think a red dress is a must for a night out. Sure, you've got the LBD but what about the LRD? Eh? Eh? I guess it depends on where you're going but I think having a red dress in your wardrobe for a night out is just as important as having a black one. Teamed up with a leather jacket, black boots and a gold chain I think anyone could rock this!

What do you guys think?
Which looks are your favourite?

Also! I have been thinking of ways to expand my blog a bit and have decided to set up a blogger series and interview bloggers who would be interested to take part. I've got a couple lined up at the moment and some on my list of people to e-mail but if you are interested in an interview (just a couple of questions!) then feel free to send me an e-mail! It's open for any type of blog, small, medium or big, just as long as you've been blogging for a while (so there's enough content for me to do a write up/get to know the style of your blog etc). I just thought it would be something cool to add and showcase other blogs out there and get to know the blogger a bit more! Initially I'll aim to interview one blog a month buuuuut that will depend on how interested people are in it etc, what do you think? Check out one of my previous interviews here.

  9. I love all three of the looks but i especially like the red dress with the leather jacket i think that adding that leather jacket with the red dress just looks very bold and both of the colours stand out from eachother :)
