Wear and Where: Burgundy Red Sheath Dress

From Romantic Valentine's Date to Fall Holiday party- a dress in this shade of red is as versatile as it is stunning.

Look: Valentine's Date Night


If pastel pinks and purples don't evoke a memory of youthful Valentine's Days, we don't know what does. We talk about lovely outfits ranging from casual to flirty to dressed up in this article, but today we're talking a whole new level of a romantic date night outfit.

Where lighter pink and purple shades create a more light and flirty feel to an outfit, this deep burgundy takes the mood a whole level deeper.

Like good chocolate, the darker the shade, the richer the flavor.

The deep burgundy hue of this sheath dress creates a more romantic, mature look. We love the subtle ruching detail that meets at one side of the waist. This slight draping of fabric tricks the eye into seeing a more hourglass shape figure, while keeping the form of the dress elegantly simple.

It's no secret that we love pearls here, so we accessorized this outfit with darling freshwater drop pearl earrings with a cute bow detail. We also pulled in a minimalist pearl necklace and coordinating bracelet.

To add a little more sparkle and bling to the look, go for a clutch with a light embellishment. Finish the look with some beige pumps for a simply elegant Valentine's Date outfit!

Look: Late Fall Holiday Party

We all know it's much better to buy a dress that could be worn on multiple occasions, so fast forward 6 months from Valentine's Day. October marks the middle of autumn, but the onset of holiday party season. We wrote in this article about the color mulberry, which could be the sister shade of burgundy.

This warm red hue shows up in the fall leaves and lasts all the way to the end of the year with holly berries.

Playing off the warmth of this color, accessorize with yellow gold. We kept accessories neutral to let the deep red be the focus of the look. The yellow gold compliments the warmth of the dress, and the black and white provides a lovely framing.

We love these sparkly black pumps by Badgley Mishka- they create an understated bling component. In similar fashion, the Kate Spade bag and Michael Kors watch subtly accessorize this look without calling attention to themselves. We paired a gold bracelet with a little pearl detail to the watch to layer in some more warm gold.

The black, gold, and pearl earrings tie together the accessories for a seamless holiday ensemble.
