I can't even think about a red dress without the Sugababes singing along in my head. A red dress is a perfect party look if you're aiming to make a statement. It's a classic but more eye catching than a LBD and arguably sexier. Recently it's been worn by many ladies from Rachel Stevens to Rebecca Adlington, with even Suri Cruise getting in on the act! However, you should approach with slight caution as it's not quite as easy to wear as you might think.
Red is such an overpowering colour that it can leave you looking washed out, especially if you have a pale complexion. If this is the case then opt for a deeper shade like Joan Collins. Darker toned girls can go for bright, pillar-box shades. If you're feeling a bit shy then break up the block colour with a black jacket, fur stoll or wrap and remember to keep all accessories simple.
