How to Wear a Red Party Dress

A Red Dress might not be number one on your Christmas shopping list - but it is a sure fire way to enter the party spirit and get noticed! The 'right' red for your colouring is important.  Consider whether you need clear scarlet or soft geranium, warm tomato or cool raspberry.

But expressing your Style Personality is how to feel comfortable and confident with your look.  Colour and shape will flatter your body  - while your personality will dictate your style, how you interpret 'fashion' and pull your whole look together!  Which of the following do you identify with most?
