Perfect Red Dress and Red Lip: Valentine’s Day Edition


Hey ya’ll,

Welcome to my Valentine’s Day Fashion and Beauty Edition.  Today we’re talking about how to find the classic red dress for your body type, and the classic red longwear lip options.

The key to looking your best is to ensure you are dressed clothes designed for your body type.  Ever person has that one thing that they LOVE and HATE about their body, so making sure your garment is the right fit, in the right fabric for your body type is key.

For instance, if you’re full-figured and have a glam sense of style, structured fabrics and fits are best for you.  Fabrics such as sturdy cotton, heavyweight jersey fabrics, and large chunky knits look best because they are built to cinch; yet structured enough to hold it all in there 😉

If you are full-figured and have a chill sense of style, a looser cut jersey dress is also perfect because it accentuates what you want, and hides what you don’t.

If you are petite, and/or curvy fitted or flare dresses look best, as they create and accentuate the shapes that are naturally there.  And, if you have the sexy back to rock a backless dress, make sure you choose one where the neckline and the hemline balances the risque(ness) of the back of the dress.

If you have an apple shape, and are wider through the chest and torso, an A-line fit dress works best whereby the top is fitted, and the mid and bottom are a relaxed fit.

The accessories I used in the first two photos balance the dress types.  The first one is long and delicate (as not to collide with the volume of the sleeves).  I paired a long and fine, and a long and chunky gem necklace with the second dress, as to add a bit of understated luxury to the look.

The accessories I paired with the third dress is a metal choker and delicate midi rings, as to compliment the flirt and flair of the dress.

Keeping it sexy on Valentine’s Day is all about a revealing neckline, and v-necks looks great on EVERYONE!!  If you’re ever in-doubt about dressing for your body type, just remember that you can never go wrong with a v-neck and delicate jewelry!

Since you still have time to shop, and have your dress or lipstick shipped, here are a few of my favorite websites to do so!
