The question was raised on Monday’s post, “what do you wear with red loafers?” I’ve been eyeing a pair myself, so I decided to take up the challenge!
Warm-Toned Outfit With Red Shoes
Of course, you can always wear red shoes with denim (jeans or skirt). It’s an almost foolproof combination! Add a white or striped shirt, or a tee and blazer and you’re good to go. But I wanted to create outfits that went beyond denim, so have put together one based on warm tones, and one on cool. I stuck to simple, classic pieces to let color be the focus.
Above, chinos or any tan pants will look great with red. I’ve used a scarf with some red in it to “bookend” the shoes and tie the outfit together. Instead of a scarf, you could add a printed shirt with red in the pattern.
Cool-Toned Outfit With Red Shoes
Here, I’ve used grey as a base, and tied in the red shoes with bits of red throughout the outfit. (Just a note: that grey cardigan is washable merino wool, and would be a great addition to a fall travel wardrobe. Other colors available.) Again, you could include a blouse with some red, rather than the scarf.

Do you have a favorite pair of red shoes in your wardrobe? How do you style them?
