5 Red Dresses For A Professional Event

Posted by Claire Erickson on

Powerful, determined, strong, and passionate. These are just some of the things that the color red symbolizes according to Color Psychology. Being professional women, it is important we have a color and an outfit that shows our stakeholders and colleagues that we mean business.

If you don't have any red yet, no need to worry! LadyBossBloggerShop.com has you covered!

1. Velvet Cake Dress

What is more luxurious than velvet? Especially for a professional event, whether it be speaking in a panel or attending a formal business dinner, this texture and color together will not only make you look powerful, but also determined to get the job done. 

Wear your hair in a french twist for a more elegant look, and add a gold belt to accentuate the waist. 


2. Presentation Ready Dress

Almost always-- no matter the dress you wear-- if it has long sleeves, you are going to look more professional. If you want to add a little flare of fun to your professional look, this dress with an added side ruffle, says you are here to work hard and play hard. 

Pair with a pointed, closed-toe nude heel for work, or let your hair down and add a strappy-sandal for a night out after office hours. 


3. Always Professional Dress

This deep red dress is an essential around any office. It is close enough to brown to be considered neutral, but red enough to symbolize your passion for business.  

Pair it with a blazer during business hours, or cover up with a pashmina and carry a clutch along for date night. 


4. Wine and Dine Dress

Want to feel like Kate Middleton? This dress will for sure make you look like the Duchess of Cambridge. These maroon pleats will flow beautifully when you walk into any office meeting. 

Carry with your large tote and trench coat to the office, or pair with a smaller boxed bag for a coffee date. 


5. Sweet and Sophisticated Dress

The name says it all. The ruched collar and buttons running the length of the dress give it a whimsical charm, while the front pleating and color of the dress make it appropriate for work. 

Flats and a blazer are sure to complete this look!
