Striking, vibrant while still being elegant, a pair of red heels is a high impact yet versatile wardrobe addition. Great for transitioning from the office to date night, red high heel shoes are always a great choice when you want to get hearts racing. With great savings on sale heels and always affordable high-quality shoes, Wittner is your go-to destination for beautiful red shoes.
While red high heel shoes definitely make a statement, the shade is a classic for a reason. Louboutin of course popularised red sole heels, making his brand instantly iconic no matter the design. Historically though, red shoes have also been popular for a long time. Ruby red footwear was typically reserved for distinguished and noble people. In more recent times, red shoes have become a symbol of sultry sexiness, and fantastical settings (think Dorothy in Oz and her famous sparkling red slippers). You’ll never be a wallflower in vibrant red stilettos, but if you like a bit of daring in your fashion, red high heel shoes are sure to be a hit.
From red strappy heels to red block heels and everything in between, Wittner has a great range of affordable crimson footwear for both special occasions and everyday workwear. Shop low heels that are comfortable for all-day wear or show off your pins with scarlet high heels that stand out from the crowd.
There are two approaches you can take to building an outfit around a pair of red heels. Keeping the rest of your clothes and accessories pared back and neutral will bring the scarlet shoes to the forefront; think beige, black, white and navy pieces in classic cuts and timeless styles. For cocktail parties, red heels look fabulous with your favourite little black dress. But for a more dramatic look, try contrasting crimson heels with a complementary colour. Forest green pairs beautifully with burgundy, while peacock blue sets a stunning counterpoint to bright red shades.
The beauty of red high heels is that they are surprisingly versatile, while still giving your outfit a pop of colour and visual interest. If your workplace has a more conservative approach to dressing but you want to mix up your footwear from classic black and beige heels, try a more muted tone of red — think burgundy, oxblood or maroon. Closer to a brown heel while still feeling a little adventurous and fun, it’s an easy way to step up your workwear with an accessory that can be styled with all sorts of separates.
Styling red high heels offers a wealth of options for any event. When it comes to wedding heels for a nuptial outfit, try a midi dress in a bright shade with some red strappy heels that add plenty of va-va-voom. In the office, we love a classic red pump coupled with flawlessly cut trousers. Channel your best 1940s screen siren with some burgundy pumps and a pencil skirt for sophisticated work-appropriate glamour. If you want to tie your look together, try matching your red heels with your bag or earrings and jewellery. By keeping the rest of your outfit subdued and embracing red accessories, you’ll look put together but still make a style statement.
The beauty of red heels is that there’s a shade of red to suit every complexion and skin tone under the sun, so it’s simply a matter of finding the right hue for you and the colours in your wardrobe. If you find yourself gravitating towards darker colours and love black, a darker burgundy tone will work well with more sombre colours and autumnal shades. For those who love to live in jeans, try a red stiletto with your favourite denim and a matching red lip for a dressed-up casual look. If you prefer keeping things light and bright, whites, beiges and cream colours get a summery makeover with a bright red high heel sandal. Slip them on with your favourite linen dress or shorts and you’re ready for summer barbeques and garden parties. Above all, the best accessory to pull off a bold red heel is confidence; so embrace the passion and daring of this sartorial staple and don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd.
