Restyling a Bold Red Dress

I purchased a red sheath dress from The Limited back in the fall of 2010 and I love wearing it.  It’s bold, bright, and the kind of dress that makes you feel powerful when sporting it.

On the days that I want to turn down the volume on the bright red dress, though, I rely on some warm color pairings.  This season, I’m totally drawn to the mustard, camel, and red combination.  Divine, right?

The clean silhouette of a good-fitting sheath makes restyling a breeze.

Dress—The Limited (Calvin Klein alternative)
Sweater—Loft (on sale in stores now; Forever21 alternative)
Blazer—Gibson via Nordstrom Rack (recent buy-$49.97)
Belt—The Limited
Boots—Jeffrey Campbell c/o Solestruck

    I love these colors together. I may have to recreate this look next week (if it isn't too cold).

    You picked great colours to wear with it! 🙂 I would have thought yellow and red would be too bright together but as a skirt and top they work perfectly! 🙂
