The Red Dress Roundup – From Joseph to French Connection

If you buy one thing this week, or this month, make it a red dress.  Red dresses can make you smile, can flash at you from your wardrobe full of winter black and brown, can make spring months brighter, sexier and more fun, and will make you stand out in the crowd.

The very best red dresses are glamorous and flattering at the same time, and perfect for wearing to a lunch or dinner when you’re sure most others will be wearing black.  Not for shrinking violets, sexy red dresses deserve to be worn with the highest heels (preferably nude as black can be too heavy) bare legs and modern jewels.

Sale shopping at this stage can become tedious, you’ve seen it all before, enough with the sales already when what’s left is not wanted for a reason.  Don’t give in to temptation to buy that dress you’ve been waiting to go to 70% off in the wrong size.  You’ll never love it.

These are dresses to love and enjoy, pick up something special, wear it with a cardi now and smooth bare arms later and make the start of the year brighter and more interesting.

Oh and by the way, if you wait they may not.  So many will have gone by the time the sun really comes out.
