The Red Dress

Let’s talk about the red dress. Feminine, bold, romantic, fresh, evocative and timeless. I love the way I feel when I wear red and in the summer, nothing beats a red dress. Here are my favourites, all available to buy now.


ASOS – £42

I love the length of this dress. It is also 100% cotton and fully lined so a bargain for £42. Have a look at the front of the dress too. It’s just so pretty.

Red Dress ASOS

ASOS – £38

This is perfect for anyone who doesn’t like to show off their decolletage. Probably better suited for those with a smaller bust. It is 100% viscose and has a very pretty frill wrap at the front. I also love the asymmetrical hem and back detail.

ASOS Maxi Tea Dress- £40

This dress is great for anyone who doesn’t like showing the tops of their arms. It’s the perfect day dress and I love the buttons down the front of the dress. The back has a deep V which might pose a bra strap problem?!


Mango £49.99

This is a slightly more orangey red, but I absolutely love the style and length of this dress.


Whistles – currently £159.20

This is a beautiful if you have an occasion coming up. Whistles currently have 20% off so a good time to buy.

At the upper end of the budget, is this smarter silk version from Philip Lim. Absolutely beautiful, definitely a forever dress.

When I wear red I like to keep my footwear and accessories neutral (nude, tan, gold) I am not a big fan of black shoes with a red dress for some reason. They’re a little too stark, a bit ‘soldier’ perhaps?!

    Love a red dress, am so in agreement as far as black shoes go, let the dress do the talking!

    What length did the Zara dress come up on you? Did you get small or medium?

    Sorry to ask, but do you know where the red shirt dress with the woman sitting on steps comes from?
