With all the Christmas parties ahead it’s time to ditch your trusty LBD and embrace the new ‘it’ colour, yes I’m talking red! Bold, sexy and conveniently festive red is a glamorous and stylish alternative for this season’s gatherings

An a-list fave from the start of the year with Heidi Klum and Anne Hathaway stealing the limelight at the Oscars in their stunning scarlet gowns, the colour is surprisingly accessible with some beautiful party dresses on the high street like this gorgeous strapless dress by Rachel Roy.

If you’re hooked on your LBD however, killer red heels or a slick of red lippy work can liven up an LBD and add a little sassiness.

Need I say it…avoid white faux fur accessories unless you are intentionally channelling Mr/Mrs Clause’s style. $1,150 $805, available at net-a-porter.
