I have these sneakers in solid white and I wear them at least twice a week. They’re comfy, the cut is flattering, and as you can imagine, they go with everything. The ‘Kam’ sneaker was sold out for awhile, but they’ve recently been restocked in styles galore. I went for the embroidered pair, but I was kinda feeling the  all-red version — though I’d probably feel like a clown in them. It’s like that one episode of Full House where Michelle was self conscious of her growing feet — the Tanner family got jokes!

This Sezane skirt reminded me of a look I posted last spring. To my surprise, that outfit was pinned like crazy and even featured  on Who What Wear as “The Most Popular Zara Item On Pinterest.” Since summers in San Francisco are usually chilly, I stock my closet with long skirts and dresses. They feel seasonally relevant, yet not as drafty as shorter dresses. Plus, I’m prone to wardrobe malfunctions, so the length prevents any Marilyn Monroe moments if the Bay Area breeze picks up.

Weddings always make me want to branch out of my everyday style — and when I say “branch out” I mean wearing any other color besides black or grey. Expanding my style chops, I went ahead and ordered this bright red midi dress for a wedding in San Francisco. I was taken aback by the vibrancy once it arrived, but I tried it on anyway, then slipped into these mustard yellow heels. The classic Mary Jane style balanced out the fiery red and frilly trim. See below for tips on what to wear with a red dress :

 

  1. What shoes do you wear with a red dress? If you want to go color on color try; blush, hot pink, or orange in the spring and in the fall; hunter green, plum, or maroon. Year-round colors include; navy, nude, or mustard.  
  2. What jewelry do you wear with a red dress? My favorite metal to wear with red is gold — they’re both warm tones that feel inviting and playful.  Dainty pieces in silver  are timeless while chunkier pieces can look contemporary, especially in rose gold!
  3. What color lipstick do I wear with a red dress? Since I can’t pull off a true nude lip, I went with my everyday mauve lipstick. It added just enough color without competing with the red dress.  I also used lipliner to define the shape of my lips while keeping the liquid lipstick in its place.
