Red Was Meant For The Holidays…

(But Looks Amazing Year-Round!)

I’m no stranger to the color red. It’s one of my very favorite colors to wear, especially during the holiday season! From red lips to red dresses, I can’t get enough.

To Wear, Or Not To wear?

One of my favorite things about December is the sheer amount of parties we cram into four weeks.  It’s kind of hectic, but also very magical. There is nothing more I love than a good excuse to get all gussied up, put on one of my favorite red dresses, and pop the champagne!

One of the comments I receive the most when posting about the color red, whether it’s a bold lipstick or a dress like this one, is, “I’m too nervous to wear that bold of a color.” I hate hearing this, because this just means that you haven’t found the right red dress or right red lipstick for you! Once you find it, I promise you’ll be singing a different tune! So stop staying away from the color altogether and live a little! 😉 I pinky promise you won’t regret it!

3 Red Dress Holiday Looks

Fitted Red Dress

I love this dress for so many reasons.  It’s classic, it’s comfortable, and wow, will it make you feel like a million bucks! Also, it’s under $85! I ordered a size up and had it tailored to fit my body perfectly.  **I’d highly recommend doing so if you are like me and are a bit curvy.**  😉 


Wide-Leg Red Jumpsuit

How fun is this Jumpsuit?! If you are nervous about trying out the color red, this one should put you at ease! Not only is it darling with the one shoulder bow, but the wide-leg fit is very flattering and oh-so-comfortable! This would be perfect for all your holiday parties!


Long Sleeve Midi- Dress

Okay, I’m obsessed with this dress. If this doesn’t scream Grace Kelly then I just don’t know what does. For under $120, you’ll have an instant staple. Also, if you are like me and are already wishing it came in multiple colors, you’re in luck! It comes in black too! We probably need both.


So, the moral of this story is that you can do it! Wear the red and feel fabulous!
