Gwen Stefani And Sienna Miller Show How To Wear Red Without Looking Like A Fire Truck

October 19, 2010

Red is a tough color to pull off. You want to look sexy and vamp without resembling a lady of the night, and you want to make a statement and be bold, without sending strangers into cardiac arrest. Luckily, Sienna Miller, Jennifer Lopez, AnnaLynne McCord, Kristin Cavallari and Gwen Stefani are here to show how to wear the color without looking like Hester Prynne from The Scarlet Letter. Thanks, ladies:

Red Pea Coat:

AnnaLynne McCord and Kristin Cavallari show how to wear red this fall, by pairing a feminine, ruffled red coat with an otherwise black ensemble. For McCord, it was slimming black pants, a black scarf and flats. For Kristin, black booties and a mini dress did the trick.

For the highest impact, go with this AK Anne Klein Double Breasted coat ($128.99, down from $265). The fitted, slimming style will stop traffic. If you’re looking for a slightly more subdued hue, look no further than this J.Crew Double-cloth Colletta coat ($298). The waist ruching ads a super feminine touch to the wool style.

Red Shift Dress:

For a sexy nighttime look, try a red hot shift. Pair it with black tights and black blazer for work, like Alexis Bledel did, or sexy nude heels for play, like Jennifer Lopez.

Get the look for much less with this BB Dakota Whitman Dress ($80). The flirty skirt detail is definitely red carpet-approved. For an even brighter, more bold style, try this Milly Nichole Bow Shift Red Dress ($350)

Red lipstick:

For a pretty pop of color like Sienna Miller, try this Yves Saint Laurent ‘Rouge Pur Couture’ Lip Color SPF 15 ($30) and go light on the eye makeup. A layer of red lipstick, some mascara and a shot of bronzer is all you need to nail the look.

Red Accessories:

Not ready for a full-blown red outfit? Try a small pop of the color in accessory form, like Gwen Stefani did. This Nordstrom Grosgrain Border Straw Fedora ($28) is perfect.

Shop more fall must haves, such as flat boots, military jackets, off the shoulder tops and jeggings.
