When it comes to fashion, every colour has its singular, special meaning. Black is edgy and serious; white is light and ceremonial, and pale yellow is a shade that’s seasonal and carefree. We could go on and on about every colour of the rainbow, but we’re here to talk about one timelessly bold and classic one: red. This fiery hue has the unique ability to send a special message to everyone around you — one of power and utter confidence.
We also love crimson’s year-round properties — whether it’s 10 degrees or 30 degrees outside, you can always sport this shade. We pulled out all the stops in our search for a summer-friendly red dress. (Spoiler alert: we found 17 of them, along with one single jumpsuit that we loved too much to eliminate.) So, click on if you just want to stun in the most attention-catching shade on the colour wheel.
