Long after Chris de Burgh’s infuriatingly memorable ‘Lady in Red’, there is still something so empowering about a red dress, a style that has emerged as a micro-trend for the new season. The red dress commands a room and exudes confidence. It is a colour symbolic of so many things, love, danger, power, and whether worn in the boardroom or the bar, it makes a statement.


With all eyes on you, the cut of your red dress is just as important as the colour. Such an attention-grabbing block colour demands a great cut and the way the fabric falls and folds on this ruched waist number by ESCADA sees it shoot straight to the top of our autumn/winter wishlist. With an eternally flattering V-neck, subtly fluted sleeves and detailing that draws the eye across the body and creates an optical illusion to cinch the waist, it has all the earmarks of a wardrobe staple.

The temptation to reach for your black opaque tights is sky high on a chilly winter morning but with a red dress they can look dated. Instead, opt for this season’s knee boots to reach up just below the hem of the dress or brave bare legs if you dare, ankle boots keeping your feet warm and your look on trend.
