I have a pair of deep ruby red patent shoes that I love wearing when it’s time to cover up the toes.  Because they’re a dark shade, I treat them like I would a brown or black pair of shoes, wearing them with almost everything.

If you’re looking for some red hot ideas, you’ll find everything from casual to dressy and petites to plus sizes.

But first, above are a few shoes that didn’t make it into outfits below.  From left to right:

Red & Ravishing Red footwear works for everything – especially a dressed up look – as long as you keep it balanced with your outfit.  Try different shades, details and embellishments instead of a lipstick red pump to personalize your style statement.
