The History of the Red Dress

World leaders throughout history have worn red clothing to symbolize their power. A perfect example of this is a portrait of Princess Elizabeth I before she took the crown as Queen. She wears a richly decorated red gown and red cap, sending a powerful message of her political and moral strength, right before she took her position as a powerful monarch.

The Red Dress Effect

There is a phenomenon known as 'the red dress effect.' Studies have shown men rate women more attractive and sexy when they're wearing red. The phenomenon is thought to imply that humans have been conditioned to associate red with fertility.

What the Color Red Symbolizes

Red is the color of blood and fire, so it is commonly associated with war, strength, energy, power, determination, love, desire, and passion. Red is a highly visible color and often generates a reaction from people, which is why firetrucks and stop signs are red.

Light red is said to represent sexuality, sensitivity, passion, joy, and love. And dark red is associated with leadership, courage longing, and vigor.

Celebrities that Love Red

Celebrities love to wear red dresses on the red carpet. Some red gowns that stand out to us have been worn by Bella Hadid, Rita Ora, Selena Gomez, Kylie Jenner, and Aidy Bryant.

When to Wear Red

Red dresses can be classic and elegant, or they can be sexy and eye-catching. Additionally, red gowns compliment every skin tone and hair color. If you are considering a red prom dress, ensure you choose the shade of red that works best with your skin tone and hair color. You should go with a bright red if you have a warm skin tone and a darker red (such as burgundy or maroon) if you have a cool skin tone. Most importantly, look for a shade of red that contrasts your hair color. Hold up the red prom gown to your skin and hair color to make sure the shade of red you're considering compliments you.

Red Prom Dresses

A red prom dress is an excellent way to make your prom special. Burgundy prom dresses capture the attention of the room, make you feel sexy, and help you to stand out. If you select a red prom dress, it can be powerful on its own, or you can accessorize it with gold or silver jewelry and shoes. There may be others who choose to wear a red dress to prom, so make your dress more unique with details such as lace embellishments or long sleeves.

Above all else, make sure you should choose a prom dress that you feel comfortable and pretty in.

Red Dresses Work for All Occasions

Red dresses aren't exclusive to prom. A red cocktail dress or a red formal dress can be a great choice for many special occasions, such as choosing a red homecoming dress. Choose a red gown for homecoming, winter formals, military balls, pageants, sweet 16, and other significant occasions.
