Christmas Parties: 15 Little Red Dresses Under £50

Nothing is cooler than the red dress (to quote the Sugababes), especially when it comes to Christmas party season.

The little red dress is the sexier sister to the little black dress, and for obvious reasons, it's the one you'll want to make an entrance in.


Let's face it, we all need a dress that makes us feel that bit more sexy - something that says, the lady is a vamp. This edit of styles (strapless, strappy, off-the-shoulder, tiered, tunic, skater and long-sleeved) will do just that. The best news is, they're all under £50.

These dresses were made to be paired with a killer heel, matchy red lipstick and a boxy clutch - while belting out your best version of Mariah's Christmas classic.

So, where to find your LRD? Head to Topshop if you want to nail that I-woke-up-like-this negligee look (the above style with black floral trim is £48) and wear underneath a black faux fur coat for max effect. You will be noticed, for sure.

H&M has a long-sleeved lace number with a circular skirt (£29.99) that you can dress down with a chunky ankle boot or play up with a metallic block heel and bare legs.

River Island has an impressive choice if you're doing the décolletage reveal thing, and New Look's cameo rose red strappy layered midi dress (£19.99) is your bargain buy.

Slip into one of these babies and you'll be shimmying to 'Santa Baby' before you know it.
