Let us start by saying that there is nothing subtle about a red dress. Red can be inherently sexy, fun and flirty or even bold as brass. Today we’re showcasing radiant and ravishing red dresses guaranteed to bring out your inner Jessica Rabbit.

Beulah London is helping provide a sustainable livelihood to women who have come out of sex trafficking in India. Their products have either been made by women who have been trafficked, or been produced specifically to raise awareness or funds for its victims. The bold details of the Wood White dress are sure to command the attention of an entire room.

Curator has developed long standing relationships with local vendors in San Francisco and works closely with them to produce quality garments and to minimize waste. With twirlable pleating in the skirt, the Darling Dress is absolutely adorable. It even has a little side pocket for your phone, lipstick, or whatever you can reasonably fit in it!

Samantha Pleet is a Brooklyn, NY based designer who uses organic materials in her creations. The Revival Dress has an ethereal, yet modern quality with the contrast of the velvet material and unexpected ankle length.

For the designers at Eskell, vintage is their inspiration and they make all of their garments locally in Chicago. Their Flame Esme Dress is appropriately named! This silk dress can be dressed up with heels and bangles for evening, but is also light enough to throw on with sandals during the day!

Komodo uses organic cotton, hemp and many other natural and ethical materials in their garments. The Suzy shift dress is made of wool and viscose and has a cool check weave texture that makes a simple sheath a bit more interesting.

NaturevsFuture designs for all seasons and embraces the long term rather than transient trends. Their Classic Obi Belt Shirtdress in red is modern and can be worn all year round. Wear it as a dress in the summer, over sweaters and jeans in the fall and even leave it open without the belt as a cool jacket; you won’t believe how versatile this shirtdress can be!

Classic and contemporary to any decade, these red dresses are sure to give you an immediate boost of confidence. Just make sure you’re prepared for the extra attention you’ll be getting when you become the proverbial Lady in Red.
