Budget Stylista: Rock the LRD [GALLERY]

It’s holiday time and at holiday time the LBD goes out the window (OK, not out the window. What a waste! More like to the back of the closet; we all know the LBD will be back by NYE) and in it’s place:

The LRD (the Little Red Dress).

From Thanksgiving to Christmas lord knows we are invited to tons of holiday parties. Some dressy and some a bit more casual. But either way, you can’t go wrong rockin’ an LRD. Nothing says “I’m Festive!” or “kiss me under the mistletoe, cute guy in the ugly sweater!” or “damn that peppermint/chocolate pretzel was good, spoon feed them to me please” like an LRD. Okay, so maybe the last one doesn’t need to be said in an LRD but, mmm, holiday chocolate.

Here are our favorite options for this year’s LRD. From santa red to darker hues to reds in a fun print – you just can’t go wrong! Dress them up with bare legs and a nude pump; dress them down with black tights and suede booties; OR, my all-time favorite combo, opt for grey tights and shoes. It’s less harsh and more unexpected than black (but this works for the more casual options only!)

Happy holidays, ladies in red!

    With Christmas just around the corner, I am totally in love with everything red right now! In fact, I just got my first LRD during Black Friday yesterday! I'll be wearing it to a formal in about a week. I also just painted my nails a bright cherry red (Revlon Red) and my toes are a gorgeous dark glittery red (Moonlit Madness by Orly). I'm definitely ready for the holidays, plus, brightly colored nails help keep my spirits up during the next 2 hell weeks of midterms and finals.

    I have had pink hair since I was 16 and have always shunned red because it clashed, but recently, I've become obsessed with everything red- from coats to scarves to accessories.
    black is simple and sophisticated, but red really stands out from the crowd.
    I bought a gorgeous red dress last Christmas that is going to be my staple party dress this winter :]]
