So Many Ways to Wear Red

How I Wear My Red

 This past week I was featured by Adrienne on
for their November topic, "How I Wear My Jeans."

The December topic will be "How I Wear My Red," so since I wore Red yesterday, I thought I'd get a jump start.

I bought this lovely Preston & York basic dress a couple years ago.  Because I never wear anything only one way, I thought it would be fun to show how this Red dress can be changed and used for various occasions.  It is an ageless style.

One of the things I like about this style dress is it can be worn year round here in the south.   Let me show you only a few ways to make it the go-to dress for all seasons and occasions.

The simple neckline makes it fun to wear a variety of necklaces and scarves.

I am wearing black pumps in the picture above, but look how sassy a pair of leopard shoes look with red.
 That's the only touch of leopard you would need.  Or with a solid color shoe add a leopard cardigan or scarf.  It's a great combination, but just don't over do it.
  For cooler weather, I add a variety of jackets such as this multicolored from Coldwater Creek.
 This is such a versatile jacket because it goes with just about anything from a simple dress to a colorful tee and jeans.
Think about adding a khaki, navy or black jacket with coordinating accessories. 

 When you want to be less casual, add a vest or cardigan and flats or boots.
 For a special night out to the symphony, concert or date with your special man, simply add something with bling.
These are only a few ways to dress up or down a basic dress.

TIP:  Never buy an item of clothing unless you have at least 3 different ways to wear it.  This is how you will have a versatile and long lasting wardrobe.

This is "How I Wear My Red!"
How do you wear your's?


  1. LOVED all these looks! but especially those shoes! I personally stopped wearing heels a little while ago, however, but I DO have a cute little pair of leper flats! The dress and color are good on you! Enjoy your day!

  2. You are so beautiful in Red! That is definitely a great color for you! I don't believe I have much in the way of red. I tend to wear mostly earthy tones.

  3. Great tips, Libby! You have such wonderful style and red looks amazing on you!

  4. Mama Libby, you are just too amazing!!! The picture of you sitting on the couch with the CUTE leopard shoes is just beautiful and you could easily be a model!!! :) You have amazing style and I'm so glad you are sharing ways to make things work!! I love doing that myself with my own closet.
