Red Cocktail Dress

Hello everyone, I am looking for a little advise. I recently purchased a red cocktail dress for a party I am attending in a few weeks. I have not purchases shoes as of yet. Should I go black heel or maybe strapped sandals? Also, should I wear pantyhose maybe Nude color? I need some ideas on accessories as well.

Thank you so much!

Did you buy it for a specific function? What part of the country are you in, and is there snow there? I live in Minnesota, and I would either buy a black or silver heel, no way would it be a sandal, unless you are going to wear boots in the car, and be dropped off right at the door, with no curb or snowbank. Here are a few ideas.

Thank you for your help. I do live in Florida, so the sandal is an option. Although, I don't think I will going in that direction. The party is a semi-formal gathering.

Hi!

I would opt for red dress with black stockings and black heels or black stockings and nude heels! Miu Miu did a GREAT tribute to this look which I cannot find for you. But I found some other pictures to show you what I mean. Runway this year and Sienna Miller below :)

Thank you very much. Very Helpful. I think I really like the Lucy Lu look.
