5 Maroon Outfits Inspired By Game of Thrones

Without getting too deep into Game of Thrones character development because we could be here for a while; Melisandre is known for her beauty with her pale skin contrasting her ruby clothing and red hair. She usually wears long robes and is one powerful character.

Melisandre’s look is all about deep hues that seep mystery and power. Here are 5 looks that work with reds, and will get you feeling as powerful as her.

Formal Evening

Ruffles ball gown, silk neck scarf, Dorothy Perkins velvet clutch, Lime Crime liquid lipstick, Bvlgari specs

This is probably the most literal extrapolation of Melisandre’s look with a heavy dress that highlights your collar bones and neck.

Add a pair of Bvlgari BV4135B lenses and you can rock this look at any evening event. It’s a simple look, but you can be rest assured that this getup will capture a lot of attention.

Office Attire

Burgundy collarless open frontline cape, Annika sleeveless trench dress, Veeanca velvet lace-up boots, Nyx butter lipstick, Just Cavalli specs

For an office look, you may want something a bit simpler. With a pair of  Just Cavalli JC0774you pretty much have your color theme streamlined: ruby and black.

This look has no frills, but the simplicity keeps everything balanced.  If the boots are too much, then perhaps try on a pair of ballet flats instead. Don’t forget the dark red lipstick though.

Evening out

Burgundy tied sleeve dipped shirt dress, River Island jeggings, Rafe Azura minaudiere, Loeffler Randall tie flats, MaxMara specs

 The focal point of this look will probably be your clutch, paired with a simple top, slim-fits and a pair of MaxMara Occhiali MM 1262 specs.

This look can be done up by adding some jewelry and switching the flats for a pair of killer heels. The great thing about wearing dark red is that sometimes even the most simplest of outfits can look extremely elegant.

Red & Brown

Ribbed bardot top, Stuart Weitzman leather sandals, Rag bone leather skinny pants, Vanessa Mooney choker necklace, Betsey Johnson studs, Versace sunglasses

This is more of an earthy look with the brown, ruby/maroon and gold accents and goes perfectly with a pair of Versace VE4331 frames.

The choker necklace is reminiscent of Melisandre’s ruby necklace (though simplified). Paired with the off-shoulder top, it will highlight your neck and collar bones.

Round neck sweater, Marios leggings, Humble chic crochet necklace, burgundy converse, Vogue sunglasses

If you’re trying to imagine Melisandre in this, I may need to stop you right there.

Whereas her look is more dark, layered and intricate, this look is quite straightforward, but we need those kinds of days too.

If the daisy choker is way too floral for your liking, switch it over with a gothic choker, or a simple necklace.

With a pair of  Vogue VO5060S sunnies you’ll still have the Melisandre’s mystery, but for her depth, try on some of the looks above.
