A Different Kind of Red Dress

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I am suddenly seeing red & thinking subconsciously about all the chic ways to wear red. Maybe it's because I can't get over how incredibly fabulous Mila Kunis looked at the SAG Awards in that red Alexander McQueen abstract print gown with the skinny belt cinching her waist...

I have written before about the importance of a bright coat, and just this week saw one of my friends wearing a beautiful bright red coat that I admired! Absolutely lovely! But with spring clothing in stores now, you are probably thinking about how to make your spring wardrobe work... and I think you should add a red dress.

The red dress is tricky to pull off, if you are interested in looking
equal parts chic and sexy. Sometimes, the red dress is thought of a smoldering, sultry over-the-top look and you don't really want that.

Pepe Jeans Floral Batwing Dress (pictured below) is my pick for a easy, beautiful red dress for spring 2011 and it is definitely affordable - and with Valentines Day coming up, it may be the perfect gift for your Valentine to buy for you (hint-hint) or if you are single, treat yourself right and snatch up something fabulous!

Whether you go for the abstract print or a floral print, the important thing is that these red dresses are fresh and completely stunning in a more subtle way. The look is completely effortless.
