We all know and love the little black dress, and surely have a few hanging in our closets. In fact, we always reach for these dresses when we want to feel confident. After all, black is arguably the most slimming shade for any shopper!

But let’s break the cycle of wearing black 24/7 and throw a new color into the mix — red! It’s a show-stopping shade and actually complements virtually every skin tone. Plus, if you think that a red dress might be less forgiving than a black one, we’re here to prove you wrong. With that in mind, we found a slew of red dresses with flattering designs that will look amazing on any body type. Keep scrolling to check out our favorites!
