At any other time of the year, when in doubt, wear black. But Little Red Dresses are just as fail-safe, and perfect for February 14th of course
Red is the colour of SS18, so if you buy a gúna in the hue and wear it this Wednesday, you will definitely wear it again. It takes a small amount of confidence to pull off red - more, if you're going head to toe which is the real way to wear it this year - but the great thing about it is that once you have the red dress, you don't really have to worry about anything else.
Forego a necklace or earrings, if you want. Wear your hair back in a Megan Markle-inspired messy bun. The focus is the dress. So make it a good one.
Accessories and jewellery aren't a huge deal, but you will need to think about your shoes. Nude pumps or sandals are a good bet. But it depends on the dress - and the weather.
A simple pair of earrings and nude pumps and off you go.
Topshop styles this with gold hoops, which really work, and green slingbacks, which I love but won't be for everyone. A pair of strappy gold sandals would look gorgeous.
Slip dresses are still in, but who wants to wear what's basically slinky nightwear when it's -1 outside? Fashion people have been saying to layer for quite some time now, and now's your opportunity to actually do it.
The little red dress in its purest form, this one is a throw-it-on-and-go-and-look-fab. See those nude pumps? I told you they'd come in handy.
That print you see. It's hearts. Aw! But don't let you fool you into thinking it's a one-wear-per-year dress. The wrap style is totally dress up or down. Wear with white plimsolls and a straw hat in the summer.
It's a Valentine's Day dress you could possibly wear to work. 'Nuff said.
I've written about this dress before and will recommend again now because I believe in it. Long sleeves and short hemline is a winning combination.
