Getting It Right: While head-to-toe red may have you feeling a little fearful for looking like a walking stop sign, it actually is quite chic when you wear the right silhouette. Avoid looking like you're wearing a costume by selecting a curve-hugging dress with a neckline that shows off your decolletage. Balance out the sex appeal by making sure the hemline isn't shorter than the knee. Select a pair of simple pumps in the same red hue, as well as a lip color that gives a nod to the 40s trend. Break up the monochromatic look with some blinged-out studs as well as an eye-catching pin. Powder up your cheeks to achieve a flirty vibe, and maintain an aura of mystery by shielding yourself with some oversized shades. Voila -- instant retro glam inspired by the ultimate modern bombshell herself, Dita Von Teese.
