Red lipstick is great: it makes you feel confident, pretty, sexy, in control, and absolutely irresistible. It is an entire accessory loved by many that can shape or break a look. It is not always obvious to match your red lipstick with an outfit on a daily basis, however. And it really depends on the look that you want to achieve, and the occasion as well: are you going on a date? Are you going to a party? Or are you just going to the grocery store? Think well… At Society19 we thought of you – so here are 10 outfit ideas that will not only match your outfit but score your look. Many celebrities have made it a statement to wear red lipstick – Taylor Swift – as a way to assert their confidence and femininity.
1. Red Lipstick + white shirt/ dress
The Red/White combination is iconic. Match your red lipstick with a white dress or a white shirt to look instantly fabulous. Ooze the Marilyn look for a fashion statement!

Wear a suit and your favourite shade of red lipstick to look femme fatale and seductive AF. Give into the androgynous style, and assert your femininity in a masculine look. Don’t forget to put your high heels to elongate your legs and show off your figure. You are going to look irresistible!

3. Red lipstick + Louboutin
This is THE power combination of the list. Match your red lipstick with the red platform of your Louboutin pumps. This subtle combination is fun and quite original. It will definitely have the desired effect.

4. Gold accessories
Just like the Red/White combination, gold works really well with the colour red. This noble material will soothe the harshness of the red, and will compliment ideally your outfit. The best option here is to choose gold accessories such as bracelets, or a long thin elegant necklace.

If you want to stay feminine, and yet be pretty comfortable in your clothes and wearing something casual, you can do that by combining a denim jacket with your red lipstick. This is perfect if you have plans in the evening after work, and don’t have time to change for something more sophisticated.

6. Black velvet
Red lipstick and velvet is a match made in heaven for a sultry but chic look. Velvet, just like lace, tends to exteriorise the seductress that sleeps in you, and will for sure make you feel confident and sexy. Ooze the look with loose hair, and you’ll have the world at your feet. Great (because delicate, mysterious and subtle) for a date night for instance.
Shop the velvet dress:
7. White trainers
You know by now that the duo Red/White is a winner, so why not try the white shoes instead of the white shirt or white dress? If you don’t want to do over the top, this delicate touch might be the perfect compromise for those who want to be fashionable and trendy without attracting too much the eye.

8. Cat eye sunglasses
As you well know, vintage is in vogue lately… and so are the cat eye sunglasses! Try the black cat eye sunglasses with your favourite red lipstick and make a statement. You can do a hairdo full of volume to add a touch of vintage and exhibit the babydoll style of the 1960s. There is a well-known rule in makeup: you can either emphasise the mouth or the eyes. So, the sunglasses are a great substitute, except if you are a fan of the dramatic look of course.

9. Red lipstick + Stripes
Match your red lipstick with a striped top to steal a little bit of French elegance! Very classic Coco Chanel, this combination is great for daily life in the city. This look is cute and will enable you to spend the day chillax. Great look for the beach too!

10. The risky red on red
Match your red lipstick with a red dress or a red T-shirt. Warning: this mix is quite risky as it does not suit everybody. However, it might look absolutely fabulous if you are a brunette. If you are a blond, it might be better to stick to the classic and timeless red/white combination. If you have reddish hair, you might try the red/red combination with a silky nightgown type of dress.
