Nothing broadcasts “holiday” more than this vibrant hue.
Whether it’s the brightest cranberry or deepest wine, red is impossible to miss this time of year—and if there’s any other color so synonymous with the holidays, we haven’t seen it yet. Not to mention that at least one dress in your party-season arsenal should be a shade of red. Take your cue from a trio of red dresses that will get noticed from punch bowl to dance floor..
If we could wear the LBD, the little red dress and the little lace dress all at once, it would look like this. Keep accessories in check for a dress that pulls out all the stops. Your best bet is anything that doesn’t compete with the texture and pattern—think a sparkly bracelet and a red crossbody bag or clutch.
It’s all about the ruffle…but look again. This LRD is looks like a blooming flower that’s sure to be a party icebreaker. You can totally get away with red heels here, since black breaks up the color scheme. Don’t stop at shoes—we love a pair of chandelier earrings as a nod to the lacy pattern.
Think pulling off a red lip (especially with a red dress) is too tricky? Just know your undertones. Those with olive or yellow undertones should gravitate towards a warmer red—think brick or orange-red. Cooler-skinned gals with pink or peach undertones want more of a cherry or cranberry hue. The intensity is up to you.
Everything red. Everything here.
