8 Awesome Dresses With Lipstick Shades To Match

Matching doesn’t have to be passé.

There’s something fun and old-fashioned about coordinating perfectly your makeup and outfit. It’s kind of like when women in the ’50s and ’60s would make sure to wear the same shade of nail polish and lipstick — but much better because a dress is easier to take off than nail color.


This not-quite-orange not-quite-red shade is happy and energizing and draws attention right to your mouth. Which is great if you have dark eye circles due to staying up too late re-watching season five of Breaking Bad.

Shoes by Charlotte Olympia at Net-a-Porter, $595
Lipstick in Lady Danger by MAC, $15


Pink frosted lips are reminiscent of both Malibu Barbie and out of touch grandmas. That’s why they’re perfect.

Dress by Modcloth, $85
Shoes by American Apparel, $96
Lipstick in Obsessed by Urban Decay at, $22


Berry is a universally flattering shade, great for light and dark skin tones. And it makes you look like you just finished eating a raspberry popsicle without actually having to. (Because that’s not a popular flavor and probably hard to track down, not because of calories.)

Dress by River Island, $76
Shoes by Topshop, $112
Lipstick in Girl About Town by MAC via Bloomingdale’s, $15


Nude lips are basically the anti-makeup. But the absence of color — even on dark skin— looks fresh and not as mannequin-like as you’d think.

Dress by Rickety Rack, $120
Shoes by Superga via Karma Loop, $47
Lipstick in Love by Aerin via Saks Fifth Avenue, $30


Coral’s a tricky shade because it can look orange, and you don’t want to have orange lips. Or do you?

Dress by Milly via Profile Fashion, $488
Shoes by DV by Dolce Vita via Zappos, $89
Lipstick in Timeless by Tarte via Sephora, $26


Striking red is definitely the most punk rock of all lipstick colors. Pair it with a safety pin dress and you can basically start calling yourself Siouxsie Sioux.

Dress by VERSUS Versace via Profile Fashion, $411
Shoes by Vivienne Westwood for Melissa via Nonnon, $159
Lipstick in Provacateur by Buxom via Sephora, $21


It’s physically impossible to be sad with hot pink lipstick on. Ask Nicki Minaj. Also, this outfit is very Stella McCartney and I’m proud of that.

Dress by Mango, $35
Shoes by UNIF at NastyGal, $98
Lipstick in Lolly by Topshop, $16


Plum is a dramatic and moody and wonderful. Like you on your period. The double dose of deep purple only makes it that much better.

Dress by H&M, $25
Shoes by Steve Madden at, $110
Lipstick in Venom by Urban Decay at, $22
