Red-y Or Not

One color that I don't find myself wearing very often is red. I use to think that red wasn't a very pretty color, but I have come to realize that I am liking it more and more. Putting together pretty outfits featuring the color red was my inspiration for this post. I have put together three very pretty outfits that can be worn for different occassions.

Look One
Red-y or Not

This look is the formal look featuring this cute red dress. I love the ruffleing along the side of the dress. Since this was a more formal look I paired the red dress with black and gold. I think this is a look that anyone can afford with little effort since each piece costs less than $50!

Look Two
Red-y or Not 2

This is my casual red look. I think red tops look best with dark wash jeans. The leopard print flats add some personality and fun to this look. I played off the brown in the flats with the jacket and the accessories. This is another bargain look with each piece being $50 or less!

Look Three
