Instead of pairing a red dress with black accessories, red can be worked with many other coloured accessories. For instance you could go for dark brown, light brown, beige, pale blue, navy, pale grey OR dark grey! The easiest method is to pick one colour that matches well.
If you try and keep to a maximum of three colours in the outfit you will look put together, not too matchy matchy and not too overwhelming colourwise!
- Select red dress (main base colour)
- Select second colour (contrast/lifting colour: dark navy bag and shoes)
- Add a neutral to run through the outfit (nude tights, nude tone cardigan/jacket and pearl/nude toned jewellery)- could be black, nude or white
