Hello. My name is Summer Bellessa with Eliza Magazine. And I'm here to discuss how to accessorize a red dress. So what you're going to need when you're accessorizing a red dress will be your choice of a purse, accessories and shoes. And when you're dressing with such a bold hue, you're going to want to make sure that you don't pair anything with it that is competing too much. Like a lot of patterns or like too much color. Usually red dresses look the best when they are simple and classic. So when you're choosing a purse, you're going to want to find something that fits the occasion. So if it's a black tie event, a clutch works. If it's something more casual, you know you can go for a bigger, bulkier type bag. And then obviously for all the events in between, you can pick something in between. When you're accessorizing, it's important to know that everything doesn't have to be matchy, matchy. You don't have to have your shoes that match your purse, that match your jewelry which you can. And with a red dress, another element, simple element where they all match can work really great. However, if you want to mix and match a little bit; black shoes with silver or gold jewelry, that's quite alright. So when you're picking your shoes, it's also relevant where your going. So if it's a black tie event, you know a gold strappy or a silver open toed shoe would work. But, even down to something really casual, a boot could work. A black boot would be probably perfect. A brown boot could possibly work with the right dress. And then obviously everything in between. So shoes; you can have fun. You can do something a little different but you also want to be aware of how much the red dress is. And how when you walk in a room it definitely is a lot that you don't want to make all your jewelry, accessories and shoes too much. So that is how to accessorize a red dress. This is Summer Bellessa. Thank you.
