You may have noticed an explosion of red dresses across your Instagram feed lately. From floaty floral styles to button-up shirtdresses, it seems the LRD has made its way back into the spotlight, and we couldn’t be happier. Why? It’s one of the key trends to come out of the autumn/winter 2017 shows, plus, the timeless shade really does suit everyone. Win-win, right?
We know the idea has been around for some time now, but if you’re anything like us, you’ll also know that this simple piece has the power to totally transform your wardrobe (and your mood).
