Dress: Donna Karan
A vivid red will always get a second look, which makes the 'little red dress' essential for festive occasions, holiday parties and special dates.
According to Edith, "Color in your wardrobe is more than something to please the eye and more than just a matter of personal preference. It is a kind of magic that can transform you from what you are to what you would like to be."
But there are a spectrum of reds, and much like choosing the right lipstick, you have to find the tone that will compliment you best.
Between all of the possibilities: crimson, scarlet, coral, flame red, ruby red, raspberry etc., there is a flattering option for every, unique skin tone.
- Decide if your best suited towards warm or cool tones of red. Use your cosmetics, nail polishes or lipsticks, as a guide for finding the right shade of red.
- This Donna Karan dress is cut on a bias, so it's figure flattering. Find a dress that's well constructed and emphasises your best assets.
- Keeping my first tip in mind, with a curve-hugging, cocktail dress, it's very important you don't go too short.
- Find one that you can wear throughout the seasons, with the addition of tights.
