Red Lip Outfit {Combos}

I think we all agree that a great outfit can make you feel like you can take over the world. So what’s the proverbial cherry on top?: the red lip. Same color even! Clever, huh?

One question commonly contemplated by our red-lip-mastering Queens, is what do you wear it with?!

If I wear it with animal print, will it look cheesy? If I wear it with leather, will I look like Sandy from Grease? If I wear it with a crazy print, will it royally clash?

Fear no more beauties, we have your answers! Here are some of our favorite outfit/lip combos. We’ve split it up into three different categories for you: rocker, prints, and basics.
