Every February, the American Heart Association presents its annual “Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection” runway show as part of New York Fashion Week. The exclusive, celeb-filled event shines a light on heart disease in women but also relays a message of empowerment. And what woman doesn’t feel like a force to be reckoned with when she’s wearing red? Whether you’re sporting the color for a date night, Valentine’s Day or a formal occasion (or maybe even your own red carpet event…), a little “something red” goes a long way.
If you’ll soon be a guest at a wedding, lucky enough to be part of the bridal party, the excited mother of the bride or groom, or even the bride herself, this regal, heart-filled hue is a guaranteed head-turner. In fact, brides traditionally wear red wedding dresses in China and India. So forget those old-fashioned rules about what colors you can and can’t wear because red dresses for women are multi-seasonal and come in a variety of shades and styles. Short red, long red, red velvet, red lace, bridesmaid and bodycon, here’s a slew of our favorite and best-reviewed red dresses at price points ranging from $59 to $898, all available to shop online now at Macy’s, Nordstrom, David’s Bridal and more.
