Out of the black: Red party dresses to switch up the classic LBD

There’s a reason the little black dress has its very own acronym. A timeless classic, these wardrobe workhorses can be brought out again and again.

But when party season rolls around, you might want to add a splash of colour to your ‘fit.

Red dresses have been having a moment recently, with scarlet-hued gowns spotted on style icons like Meghan Markle and Blake Lively.

It’s also associated with Christmas, but thankfully you don’t have to dress up as Mrs Claus to rock a red frock to your next event.

The key to wearing red (without looking like a badly-wrapped present) is to introduce grown-up elements and tone down the brightness with different-coloured accessories.

You can either veer towards a Jessica Rabbit look – amping up the sex appeal – or keep it simple and let the shade do the talking.

Keep your trusty LBD, but consider the LRD as its saucier, fierier, more festive bestie.
