Wearing red is a sign of confidence and unmistakably, glamour. But while many of my girlfriends love the idea of wearing red heels or boots, most of them feel like they can’t “pull it off.”
The key to sporting red kicks is restraint. Avoid, at all costs, the urge to match a red dress and red heels, opting instead for a pop of color to complement outfits in hues of grey, black, white, nude and the like.
Do sport dark denim, think dark wash skinny jeans and red pumps, or grey denim and red ballet flats a la Whitney Port.
Do wear red heels with an lbd or nude sheath a la Kate Bosworth.
Do wear red as the only pop of color in an otherwise monotone outfit a la Beyoncé.
In need of some shopping inspiration? Here are a few of my favorite red shoes from $20 to $895.
