Red is a bold color meant to make the wearer get noticed.  It can be flirty and sexy.  It can be powerful.  It can be loud and bright.  It can be deep and sultry.

Red plus-size dresses are a closet classic.  Styles can be young and trendy or contemporary sophisticated.  The color is much sought during the Christmas Holiday Season, for Valentine's Day, patriotic Fourth of July parties, and for other special symbolic days such as Heart Truth.  But, it can be worn all year. 

Spring and summer reds tend to be lighter, warmer, and brighter, while winter red tones often deepen into cooler burgundies and wines. Winter fabrics for the holiday party season are frequently lace, beaded or velvet.

Red is a color that is a powerful career statement, making sleek tailored red dresses office favorites.  More feminine silhouettes and soft fabrics are popular for date nights, as are styles with more sex appeal.  Casual options can also help express a confident personality.

A color that never goes out of style, red is available in dress options to suit most every taste, budget and occasion.
