Red Cocktail Dresses We love red cocktail dresses. Red is a color of confidence. It says, “I’m not a little girl. I’m a woman and I’m confident about it!” While orange-based red flatters warm skin tones and blue-based red flatters cool skin tones, true red flatters any skin tone. Wear your red cocktail dress with red lipstick and a fifties-style hairdo, and you’re the epitome of glamor! When you wear red, do remember that the color itself makes a big statement, so go gentle on your makeup and accessories. If you’re wearing a red cocktail dress and a red lipstick, your eye makeup definitely needs to be neutral. As for shoes, silver or black strappy evening sandals would look great, and would be a better choice than red shoes – you don’t want to be red all over. These are our top picks for red cocktail dresses: 1. Red Satin Top Cocktail Dress. We love the elegant simplicity of this dress. Made from a lustrous satin fabric, the empire waist and bias-cut skirt design is flattering to any figure, and the slight sheen of the fabric brings out the glow in every complexion. It truly is one of those cocktail dresses that you slip on and immediately feel feminine and confident. 2. Red Taffeta Cocktail Dress. Can you say “sweet?” We adore the A-line skirt – it has a tulle-trimmed lining that adds extra volume and provides a flirty and full silhouette. It’s something you would see on “Mad Men” – flirty and cute and very feminine. Wear it with kitten heels and enjoy the matching shawl! 3. Red Halter Party Dress. This is one of the most flattering dresses we carry. The deep red shade is amazing, and the cut is fabulous – the combination of the halter top, the shirred bodice and the sweeping skirt is so flattering, virtually anyone would look – and feel – amazing in this creation.
