Red party dresses are the perfect way to stand out from the crowd this Christmas. Perhaps not the obvious choice of colour when it comes to a dress for a Christmas party, but red party dresses can also look sophisticated, feminine, chic, festive and very stylish. The perfect choice if you want to look so hot that you sizzle. The LDB (little black dress) has a lot going for it in terms of versatility, but if you really want a party dress with the ‘Wow’ factor, the red party dress or cocktail dress is the answer.
You can pick from a range of different shades of red this season from bright to berry reds. Choose the red that really makes your complexion glow for the hottest party look. Those with dark hair will tend to look best in dark red shades whilst those with blond hair will look amazing in scarlets. Another great tip for choosing your red party dress is to keep it simple, the colour will provide enough of feature and a reason for people to look, there is no need to over complicate things.
Gain inspiration from the red dresses on the catwalk for autumn and winter 2010 which were a refreshing change to neutral colours that are also popular this year. At Richard Nichol there was a softly tailored one shouldered shift dress, the ultimate in elegance. Bottega Veneta also featured red with a skirt just above knee height worn with fishnets, a difficult look to pull off but can look amazing if done right. Alexander McQueen’s collection featured spectacular and elaborate red brocade dresses and an embellished floor length gown.
