How to rock a red dress and look fabulous after two kids
It is no secret that red is a hot color! It is one of those colors that when picked in the right shade will look good on every skin tone. For darker skinned brunettes like myself, a brighter, vibrant red is the way to go.
A red dress has incredible style capabilities that makes it appropriate for a wide variety of different occasions. It is one of the chicest garments a woman can own. Whether it’s a romantic dinner or a fun night out, a red dress packs a major style punch and can be used to create a wide variety of polished and sexy looks.
Being on maternity leave and spending most of my time in casual garments, I was ready to rock a bold and striking look.
When I saw this red kimono sleeve belted dress, it was love at first sight. Its color and modern cut were a perfect match to my edgy personality.
So how do you wear a red dress? Choose a silhouette that flatters your figure and highlights your best assets; then, pick appropriate accent pieces. Gold is a wonderful pairing for a red dress. I chose to accessorize mine with a chunky-gold chocker for a pairing that is very on trend. Black is another stylish choice for dressing up a red dress. The skinny black belt adds an extra dose of pizazz while the chunky heeled pumps polish off this modern ensemble.
I have been working slowly on getting my pre-pregnancy body back. The journey is not easy with baby number two. It is twice as hard to find the time to do it. I am also not one to give up so I sneak exercise into my day when I find the time. One needs to push oneself in order to achieve the goals that are set and to create a positive self image. I love to dress up so feeling good inside and looking good outside is essential.
When I brought this dress home, I was disappointed with its fit. I realized this style is perfect for my pre baby figure, it is not as flattering on a pregnant or rounder tummy.
The trick I used to make it look flattering is tucking in the tummy and curving my shoulders forward. It helps to create a silhouette that is long and lean. Second trick is my current best friend these days, a pair of Spanx. Yes, I wear Spanx and will until I feel confident and smooth enough not to.
So go ahead ladies of all shapes and sizes, grab your self a red dress and strike a pose!
