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 cocktail dresses, 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 where everyone should bring their A-game to make a good connection. For this blog post I have put together some very pretty red cocktail dress outfit ideas. Let’s look at them now.
Red off the shoulder shift dress
They can definitely make a red cocktail dress both elegant and more approachable and youthful. To start this list, I’ll show you an extremely noble one. To achieve this look, you can wear an off the shoulder red sheath dress. This dress has some very sophisticated faux crystal elements that make the dress look stunning on its own. Pair 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 meant to be a very sexy looking red strapless silk dress, it’s meant 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 flared fit cocktail dress that will fit your needs exactly. To style it casual, simply wear nude heels and a nude handbag to complete this casual yet elegant outfit that will make you feel very comfortable at a cocktail party.
Red bodycon midi cocktail dress
Here’s another low key pretty outfit for those of you who want to look beautiful but don’t want to be the center of the party. It is a red bodycon midi dress. You can simply wear it with nude gladiator sandals for a minimal and pretty look.
Red skater dress with a deep V-neckline and a 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. On a red cocktail dress, specifically a deep V-neck skater dress, the black choker may not have the same effect on the red dress, but it will make 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 shoulder dress is too far out of your comfort zone, a cold shoulder cocktail dress might be something you want to try. You can wear this red shift dress simply with white heeled sandals and it looks minimal and refreshing.
Red bodycon midi dress with red clutch
Although this red bodycon 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 red dress and red clutch combo. The pair of silver strappy open toe shoes also perfectly matches the dress to create this amazing look.
Red sheath dress with statement necklace in boho style
There are many ways to stand out at a cocktail party. One of the best ways is to dress unexpectedly in boho style. To achieve the boho look, you can simply wear a red sleeveless sheath dress with boho style nude strappy sandals and a boho style statement necklace.
Red lace bodycon dress
If you want to dress more feminine and mature, you should wear this red lace bodycon dress. This dress is a demure sexy dress with a semi-sheer bodice. I would recommend that you wear a pair of nude heeled sandals to complete this beautiful outfit.
Off-the-shoulder midi dress with a deep V-neckline
This outfit is a great demonstration of the famous saying “less is more”. It’s such a minimalist outfit that features only an off the shoulder midi dress with a deep V-neckline and light pink heels. Sometimes when the colors are right and the cuttings are right, the outfit feels just right.
Red deep V-neck mini dress
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 bag and red heels to complete this stunning red outfit.
Red fit three-quarter dress with flared belt
Here is an elegant outfit that looks a little stronger than those mentioned due to the gold belt design. Dress up beautifully 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 might want to try one that has just a 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.
A shoulder-high red dress
For a sexy and stylish asymmetric look, you can wear a one shoulder red and red dress. The high slit in the dress also allows you to show off your legs with relative restraint. Wear silver pointed 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 have a hundred more outfit ideas to share with you as I just love the idea of wearing red to a cocktail party.
