The Best Little Red Dress For Christmas
Paris Fashion Week SS19 street style

When it comes to the holidays, there really is only one colour on everyone’s mind

Forget the little black dress, this festive season it’s all about the little red dress. Much brighter than the LBD, but equally as wearable, the LRD will become your new go-to this season, because when spirits are bright and the sparkle is in full effect, you will certainly be craving a little bit of colour.

Valentino

Seen on the AW18 Paris runway, this red Valentino dress is made from floaty silk crepe de chine, which falls in pleats from the nipped-in waist. Fasten the extra-long ties in a sweet bow at the collar, or mimic the show styling by draping them over your shoulder.

Khaite

Made from satin-crepe with a deep-plunge neckline and long sleeves, the Connie dress from Khaite features considered details such as exaggerated slashed cuffs and side hemline slits which send added fluidity through the flowing high-waist skirt. Complement it with muted mules and a sleek clutch.

Dolce & Gabbana

Crafted from bright red lace, this midi length dress from Dolce & Gabbana instantly invites romance. Tailored in Italy, the short sleeved style showcases the shoulders and chest with its chic sheer sections. Style with embellished pumps for the festive season.

Alexander McQueen

Cut from crepe in a shade that Alexander McQueen calls “lust red” and tailored to fit closely through the body, this midi dress was inspired by the idea of metamorphosis. Keep the focus on its silhouette and wear yours with barely-there sandals.

Preen By Thornton Bregazzi

The feminine shape of this Preen By Thornton Bregazzi dress features wide off-the-shoulder straps and a coordinating panelled bodice that is shaped with layered pleats and a central-gathered seam, then falls into a long, fully-lined skirt. Wear it with black stilettos and statement earrings for an elegant evening look.

Jennifer Lopez’s tinsel dress has us thinking about our own sparkly designs for the festive season.
