Can you wear red lipstick with a navy blue dress


Share post:

We browsed through a number of pictures of ladies in navy blue dresses. We came across a few pictures of women wearing red lipstick with a navy blue dress, and we personally thought the look worked just fine. The contrast between navy and red is always striking in clothing. It’s just as striking when you wear a red lip color with a navy blue dress.

So we’ll have to say yes to the question: Can you wear red lipstick with a navy blue dress?

But even though you can wear red lipstick with a navy blue dress, red lipstick wasn’t that popular a color choice in the pictures we reviewed. Nudes and pale pinks seemed to be more popular choices. And this was the case regardless of skin tone. All shades between and including ebony and ivory looked amazing with the nudes and pale pinks.

The red looked amazing as well but the red gives you a more fiesty ready for trouble look while the nudes and pale pinks give you a softer more demure look. So consider the effect you want to achieve when deciding if you will wear red lipstick with your navy blue dress. If you’re trying to standout with striking force then a red lip color will do that for you. If you prefer to blend in and look more on the demure side then you should avoid red and go with a more nude color for an appearance of natural lips.

Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog which I started in 2012 (including what I'm writing now). It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment on very basic topics. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. In my defense, I'm human. There is much I do not know about anything and sometimes we have to make mistakes in order to learn and grow. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing, modeling, and doing things that make me happy and keep me actively engaged in living and being . I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (with the exception of content submitted by third party contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs on everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss. Please recognize that I have no academic or other professional credentials and I do not represent my points of view as carrying any weight or having anything of significant value to contribute to serious discussions held by experts on any topic featured. I apologize in advance for any errors major or minor that I make in my writing (I have made some embarrassing errors), anything I write that can be perceived as an offense or that is otherwise insensitive or needlessly critical and disparaging of any person. I am a work in progress and committed to striving to live consciously in a spirit of light and love. It does not mean I will not sometimes act and write in contradiction of that goal.
