Red Dress with Silver

You can also wear red and silver together because red silver reflects red and complements the color really well.

Black with Red

Red and black together is a normal choice. You might be tempted to wear a pair of black jeans and a red top together. My only concern is that it can look a little dated when paired together. It reminds me of the 2000s for some reason, but there is no denying that red and black look great together.

Here I mixed the textures to bring something new to the colour combination. Black is one of the top colors that go with red clothes.

Pairing Red and Green 

The colors for Christmas are red and green for a reason. These two colors are complementary Colors and by definition go together. The only problem is that primary red and primary green are known so much for Christmas that it is hard to wear the complementary colors any other time.

Although if you choose a red that is not traditionally a Christmas color you can find a complementary green that will work for you. For example, mint green and coral look great together but they don’t remind you of Christmas.

This black dress has a little bit of red and green in the flowers and brings in the bag color really well.

Pink with Red

Ever since I saw Sarah Jessica Parker wearing pink and red together I cannot stop thinking about wearing red and pink together. It is such a fun combination and the two colors stand out together. It looks fantastic and is a great choice for Valentine’s Day or any party. Get Valentine’s Day nail art inspiration here.

White with Red Clothes

You can really add a pop of color to a white dress with a pair of red heels. Also, a red dress with white sunglasses or white accessories is super cute together and reminds me of the 1950s sock hop look. It’s a very vintage color combination that reminds me of red cars and white wall tires.

Animal Print with Red 

When I think of animal prints like leopard, I automatically think of Red first. Red and leopard together have become kind of tacky in a way. You have to be careful on how much skin you show when you were are wearing leopard print.
