Kimberly Williams

“Lady in RED, is dancing with me…”


Feel like a princess on Valentine’s Day in a red off the shoulder, midi length skater dress. ShunMelson.Com is fully stocked with sizes small to 3x. Retailing at $69, Sexy yet affordable FASHUN is always the most flattering thing you can wear!



eShakti’s Heart Embellished Cotton Knit Dress is designed for the classic romantic at heart! This dress is available in sizes 0-36W and with custom options and $58 price tag, you’ll spread love where ever you go. Shop this look here!


Wearing red on Valentine’s Day can be compared to dressing for the job you want! It may seem cliche since the color is associated with this love-infested holiday, but if you’re married or dating, your spouse will notice you more! If you’re single and shopping, wearing red will fashionably position you in a sea of monochromatic hues. In true fashion law, the color red should always reach beyond holiday parties or Valentine’s Day happy hours. Red should provide the passion and romance of loving yourself so much, you trust it to seal the deal of what you desire, every time!

Let’s check out the amazing variety of red-dress options.


Under $50

With Christmas a few weeks prior to V-Day, spending several coins on a dress may not be an option. Don’t fret Frugalista’s because Forever 21 has you covered! This choker-neck bodycon brings a red hue of sophistication for an elegant or fun-filled night. Available in sizes S-L and currently on sale for $16! 

Fashun Tip: When wearing a thinner fabric even the tiniest frame can benefit from a smoothing garment or Spanx underneath. If the length of the dress is shorter, opt for a boy short or shorter leg



Bohemian-style lovers will appreciate the price and the cut of this Zara Open Frill Dress. Slight ruffle cuts enhanced with a short length make this $40 dress a gem.



Under $150

With slightly more to spend we thought it would be fitting to explore one of our favorite retail staples that usually has something for everyone…Macy’s! With over 500 red dress options, do yourself a favor by using the advanced filters for narrowing down your dress choices. For our business professional who needs to transition from day to night with little time to spare, this Lauren Ralph Lauren Printed Jersey Surplice Dress does the trick! Retailing for $109, the bold floral print is appropriate for the daytime with black or nude pumps and a black blazer.

Fashun Tip: When switching to the night time look, ditch the pumps for a single strap, high-heeled sandal and a statement clutch!



Channel your inner Jessica Rabbit in this adorable Rare London Sweetheart Midi dress sold on ASOS.Com. The deep sweetheart neckline and bottom hem are trimmed in a black applique that lightly hangs off the shoulder for a sexy, playful look. Priced at $83 and selling fast, we found similar styles with various length options on the Rare London website. Based in the UK, and much like ASOS, Rare London ships to over fifteen countries!


In true Rue 107 fashion they’ve designed a bold heart print that fits their flirty & vibrant mantra perfectly. Available in sizes small to size 3x, the $68 Mercedez dress is perfect for a night out with friends or date night. Falling in line with spring trends, the off-the shoulder neckline and midi length can be playfully paired with a denim jacket or with a black leather moto jacket. Even sneaker heads can find solice in this dress by ditching the heels for a platform tennis shoe or leather canvas slipper.

For the ultimate fashionistas who never settle for anything less than couture, we couldn’t talk red dresses without visiting the self-proclaimed “World’s Premier Luxury Destination”, Net-A-Porter. Luxe designer Johanna Ortiz designs this red number, fitting for a fun-filled night in the city or a Valentine’s resort getaway. Priced at $1700 and available in sizes from 0 to 12, this form-fitting garb accentuates the waist with peplum detail and a midi-ruffle hemline.
