Lady In Red: One-Up The Summer Heat In These Stunning Crimson Frocks

In a season where hemlines are unabashedly high and tank tops are routinely sheer, it’s hard to stand out in a sea of bare skin — especially if a crop top just isn't your thing. But, all of that changes when you throw on an attention-grabbing red dress. In fact, we’re pretty sure it’s hard not to feel gussied up even in the simplest scarlet-hued frock.
So, from a pleated blood-orange dress to a wine-red maxi, we culled through our favorite shops for 11 red stunners that are just as hot as the summer sun. And, no matter if you dress them up with a pair of heels or down with a jean jacket and fedora, be prepared: These picks are about to make you the center of attention.
