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.
Here are some of our favourite red dresses.
One Shoulder Red Rose Dress
This one shouldered dress by Rare Fashion is chiffon which is a great way of softening a red dress for a feminine and romantic look. The rose also makes it look extra special for a party.
Lipsy One Shouldered Gathered Dress
This Lipsy dress is seriously hot with its shiny satin and asymmetrical gathered style. It needs an equally hot pair of heels to show it off at its best. A really daring dress and definitely a head turner.

There are so many different styles around this summer, you could find it difficult to make up your mind which polka dot dress to choose. The great thing is that polka dots can look good on everyone, you just need to pick the perfect polka dot dress for you. Here are a few pointers.
Which colour polka dot dress?
Black and white is by far the most common and classic style of polka dot dress but it can also make some complexions look a little drained so look out for some other alternatives. Red and white is a fun and striking choice for smart dresses or casual dresses and pastel colour polka dots are great for dresses for the races or a wedding guest outfits. Navy and white is also always a good alternative to black and white.
How big are the polka dots?
As a general rule larger polka dots work well for wedding guest outfits, raceday outfits and party dresses. Smaller polka dots work well for a smart dress or work wear. If you are petite smaller polka dots will be best for you as they won’t drown you. The bigger the dots the bigger the impact so pick your polka dot dress depending on the look that you would like to achieve.
There are so many different polka dot dresses available that you shouldn’t find it difficult to find one that really compliments your body shape. If you have an hour glass figure, a fitted shift dress style will look amazing and you can also add a belt to highlight your waist. If you have a slim build, a high necked fifties style fit and flare dress will look fabulous, for apple and pear shapes, tea dress styles are perfect.
A leopard print dress certainly says something about you. It says that you are right on trend and ready to party but also a bit of an animal. A leopard print dress needs to be worn with attitude. It is not for the shy and retiring types but for the girls who know what they want and that is a good time. With animal prints being such a huge trend this winter, the leopard print dress is the ultimate Christmas party dress of the season.
Animal prints particularly leopard prints do have a bit of a reputation though and you need to pick your style carefully to ensure that you look more ‘Pixie Lott’ than ‘Pat Butcher’. Consider the colour, size and boldness of the leopard print and how it will work with your colouring, size and shape.
Rare Fashion Leopard Panel Dress
For example if you are petite, then look for a small scale leopard print.
Motel Janine Dress
If you larger hips then perhaps opt for a shift dress with a black skirt and leopard print top.
Lipsy One Shouldered Gathered Party Dress
The one shouldered or asymmetrical leopard print dress is also a really fashionable look this year. Also combinations of leopard print with other animal prints is a great look that will work for most people.
You can also try combining you leopard print dress with another key trend of the season. A really up to date style or shape of shift dress will keep the look really fresh.
Paprika Leopard Lace Dress at Rare Fashion
If you love this seasons lace dress why not go for a leopard lace dress combination.
Rare Fashion Leopard Print Sequin Bandeau
If your average leopard print is just not glamorous for you then why not add sequins as well.
Olivia V Neck Maxi Dress
For those that don’t like body con and mini dresses, you can find some great leopard priny maxi dresses online. With a fitted bodice to show off you upper body and a long looser fitting skirt to skim over the tummy, hips and thighs, this is the perfect choice for those who are a little self conscious about their body. It also great for those who want to rock the leopard print dress in a slightly more grown up and sophisticated way.
A final word on leopard print dresses. They are a huge style statment in their own right and generally don’t need anything to compete with them in the way of accessories. Wearing your leopard print dress with neutral coloured shoes and accessories are very this season but you might also be able to get away with one really bright and bold accessory. Red works really well with leopard print.
At Dolce and Gabbana, leopard prints were combined with polka dots for a bold and unusal look. You could try adding a polka dot accessory for a brave but on trend look. Low key and understated jewellery is the way to go or even go without jewellery altogether.
