I noticed that the most popular color for a cocktail dress is black. But if you ask me what my favorite color is when it comes to the cocktail dress, it has to be the color red. On the one hand, it is due to the catchiness of the eyes. More importantly, I believe that a cocktail party is a happy event that everyone should bring their A game to make a bright connection. For this blog post I have put together some very nice red cocktail dress outfit ideas. Let’s look at them now.
Red from the shoulder shift dress
You can definitely make a red cocktail dress both elegant and more approachable and youthful. To start this list, I’m going to show you an extremely noble one. To achieve this look, you can wear an off the shoulder red shift dress. This dress has some very nifty faux crystal elements that make the dress look stunning on its own. Combine it with nude heeled sandals that also have some crystal elements that go perfectly with the red dress. Wear a diamond statement necklace to complete the outfit.
Red strapless silk cocktail dress
Although this is supposed to be a very sexy looking red strapless silk dress, it is designed to make you look very friendly and approachable. To achieve this, you can wear the red cocktail dress with light pink heels and a pink clutch handbag.
Red Fit and Flare Cocktail Dress
For those of you who prefer a more casual dress to a cocktail party, here is a red fit and flare cocktail dress that may just suit your needs. To style it casually, just wear bare heels and a bare handbag to complete this casual yet elegant outfit that will make you feel very comfortable at a cocktail party.
Red midi bodycon cocktail dress
Here’s another low key lovely outfit for those of you who want to look beautiful but don’t want to be the center of the party. It’s a red form-fitting midi dress. You can just wear it with nude gladiator sandals for a minimal and pretty look.
Red skater dress with deep V-neckline and black collar
I think I’ve written about black dresses before and mentioned that a black choker can take a black dress to another level. In the case of a red cocktail dress, more precisely a skater dress with a deep V-neck, the black choker may not have the same effect on the red dress, but it makes the whole outfit look more stylish. To add more uniqueness to the outfit, you can wear black strappy sandals.
Red Cold Shoulder Sheath Cocktail Dress
For those of you who have nice shoulders and skin but feel that an off the shoulder dress is too far out of your comfort zone, a cold shoulder cocktail dress might be something you want to try. You can just wear this red shift dress with white heeled sandals and it looks minimal and refreshing.
Red bodycon midi dress with red clutch
Although this red form-fitting midi dress isn’t too different from the ones already mentioned, I want to put this outfit idea on the list because of the beautiful combination of red dress and red clutch. The pair of silver strappy open toe shoes also go perfectly with the dress to create that amazing look.
Red shift dress with boho style statement necklace
There are many ways to stand out at a cocktail party. One of the best ways is to unexpectedly dress in a boho style. To achieve the boho look, you can simply wear a red sleeveless sheath dress with bare boho-style strappy sandals and a boho-style statement chain.
Red lace bodycon dress
If you want to dress more feminine and mature, consider wearing this figure-hugging dress made of red lace. This dress is a low-key sexy dress with a semi-transparent top. I would recommend that you wear a pair of nude heeled sandals to complete this lovely outfit.
Off the shoulder midi dress with deep V-neckline
This outfit is a great demonstration of the famous saying “less is more”. It’s such a minimalist outfit that just features an off the shoulder midi dress with a plunging v-neckline and a pair of light pink heels. Sometimes when the colors are right and the cuttings are right, the outfit feels just right.
Red, deep mini dress with V-neck
Who says you can’t look cute and sexy at the same time? This red, deep V-neck skater dress would be a great answer to that. Wear a red clutch and red heels to complete this stunning red outfit.
Three-quarter dress with a red fit and a flared belt
Here is a sleek outfit that looks a little stronger than the ones mentioned because of the gold belt design. Dress up in a beautiful way with this three-quarter dress with a red belt. Add a pair of red heels and a gold belt to the equation.
Red skater cocktail dress with lace collar
For some people, a lace dress can look too mature. You may want to try one that has just a little bit of lace in it. For example, try this red skater cocktail dress that uses lace for the collar area. You can wear silver sequin heels to complete the outfit with elegance.
One shoulder high split red dress
For a sexy and stylish asymmetrical look, you can wear a red red dress with one shoulder. The high slit in the dress also allows you to show off your legs with relative restraint. Wear silver pointy toe heels to complete this remarkable outfit.
Here are the red cocktail dress outfit ideas that I want to share with you. I feel like I can share a hundred more outfit ideas with you as I just love the idea of wearing red for a cocktail party.
