“There is a shade of red for every woman.”Audrey Hepburn
Red has long been associated with power. You only need to look to the symbolism and meaning of the colour to see why a red dress is a mainstay in work and occasion wardrobes alike.
Red is assertive, daring, determined, energetic, powerful, enthusiastic, exciting and strong, making it a no-brainer option when it comes to an outfit you feel confident in.
This colour also represents physical energy, passion, and desire, which is why you instantly feel sexier when you slip into that favourite red dress.
In this post I am wearing a red dress from Diva Catwalk. I discovered this British boutique brand when I was still living in Ireland and I fell in love instantly.
The dress is not only super fitting and comfortable; needs almost no ironing and the colour is as bright as day one after many washes. But it also has a set of pleats in the tummy area making it perfect to disguise that extra piece of cake after a big dinner. What’s not to like?
I’ve paired the dress with a cape blazer from Zara. This blazer is so versatile, it has the ability to elevate any outfit. No wonder why royals love wearing capes. It also comes in red and white and it has pockets!
Finally for the shoes, I’m wearing a pair of heeled shoes from asos.com. I particularly love the heel, a rectangular block style. Suitable for walking on pebbles or on a park and still give you that elongated leg feeling that stilettos do.
These shoes might be soon sold out soon but I leave you a second alternative, just as nice, in the links below.
Another option for Spring/Summer shoes, if you prefer extra comfort, are flat mules.
This is truly one trend to buy now and wear forever. It’s time to swap your trusted LBD for an LRD (that’s little red dress). It’s just as easy to wear but way more head turning…
