If there was going to be a time of year for the colour red to have a fashion moment, it just had to be February. The month of love is symbolised by the colour red, so it seems to be the perfect time of year for The Heart Truth’s Red Dress fashion show, which was held in New York on Wednesday and had just one requirement for the star studded attendees – wear a red dress.
And they certainly didn’t shy away from the colour, posing up a storm in fabulous gowns in every shade of red imaginable – from Dita von Teese looking the definition of Hollywood glamour in a fire engine red fishtail number, to our very own Cat Deeley in a rich maroon dress looking every inch the stunning LA star that she has become.
All that glamour has made us fall in love with the red dress, and with plenty of choice available at Littlewoods there will be a style and a shade to suit everyone. If you have a big event, make a statement in this very sexy scarlet maxi dress from the Glam By Caprice collection – the name says it all really.
Combine the skirt shape of the season – the midi – with our new favourite colour and you get this gorgeous So Fabulous! knotted bustier dress. With a subtly sexy sweetheart neckline and a flattering draping fabric, this dress is evening style at its very bold best.
For a slightly quirky edge, and with a nod to Spring’s 60’s trend, this South bow detail dress has all the makings of a wardrobe staple and could be a winner in the age old office to bar dilemma, while this cute lace dress from Love Label is the perfect example of how to wear red during the day – pair with tights and some on-trend ballerina flats for a fun and flirty look.
So whatever your size shape and style, channel the Hollywood starlets by incorporating some shades of red into your wardrobe.
