The Perfect Poppy Red Dress for Spring 2016

Looking back at Spring 2016 runway highlights one thing is for sure – poppy red is hot on the must have list. Almost as important as the little Black dress is the little red dress this spring. The good news is that red is staying for Fall as well (see Akris and Ellery Fall 2016 shows), so buy wisely now and you will be able to carry on wearing your fabulous dress into the next season.

Wishing you all lots of fun selecting your red dress for Spring 2016!

    1. Hi Suzy, Thanks so much for your comment. The colour is brilliant isn’t it – the colour of power – smile…am going to have a second thought now and perhaps will choose Ted Baker dress after all.
