Is there anything better than a red dress? I have one in my closet, from NYE last year, that I just love but it's cocktail attire and I'd love to have something a bit more casual. I had planned to wear this red dress over the weekend to a holiday dinner, but it was too chilly and also too much walking for high heels, so I switched to a red shirt and jeans (plus flats and a jacket) at the last minute. (Don't you love when real life thwarts your cute-outfit plans?!) Now I gotta decide if it makes sense to keep this dress for another holiday occasion. See more red dress options below!
