The Eight Best Red Dresses for the Holiday Season

We’re all for black dresses, but during the holiday season, when spirits are bright and the sparkle is in full effect, you might be craving a little bit of color. Enter: the little red dress, AKA the LBD’s spicy sister. Just as versatile and easy to style as the LBD, but a whole lot more eye catching. This modern-girl staple is a no brainer for December’s endless stream of events. That’s why we designed, not one, but 50 of them for the end of the year. Hey, a girl needs options.

Here are 8 of our favorite LRD’s available now, each one perfect for a different holiday-season gathering. Find your style soulmate and let the good times roll.

Cozy Night In

Who says the little red dress is just for parties and events? This cozy, yet sexy sweatshirt dress is perfect for low-key days and nights. Wear it with over-the-knee boots and a big coat for a day on the town, or with nothing but a lacy bralette for “Netflix and chill” with your special someone.

 

delicate-lace-fit-and-flare-dress

Girl’s Night Out

This dress is a little bit sweet, a little bit sexy, and totally dance-floor ready—the perfect formula for a night out with friends. Amp up the “it’s my party” vibe with a jeweled headband or go more rock goddess by throwing on some metallic booties.

 

tie-sleeve-high-slit-maxi-dress

Art Opening

A gallery party or equally upscale event calls for a dress that’s slightly unexpected but still elegant. This flowy, floor-length dress is just the thing. The side slit and cut-out tie sleeves reveal just enough skin. Wear it with high-heel booties for an edgier finish.

 

cut-out-midi-sheath-dress

Work Event

This cut-out sheath is sophisticated, smart, and, okay, a little bit sexy too. But only in the most professional of ways. If you’re someone who lives in black and navy, surprise your coworkers by embracing this power color at your company’s holiday drinks or dinner celebration. You’ll be running the show in no time.

 

point-desprit-fit-and-flare-dress

High School Reunion

Turn heads at your reunion or hometown bar night in this flirty fit-and-flare dress. Long sleeves, a high neck, and a softly pleated skirt are modest enough for a gathering among old friends. The sheer detailing in the front and sexy cut-out in the back, however, will give your old flames heart palpitations—just like the good old days.
