Why do we love this dress?

We are obsessed with the striking red colour of this gown that makes a bold statement wherever you go. Sparkling crystals enliven its elegant style for added luxury, while the plush velvet construction feels remarkably smooth against the skin.

Why should I buy this dress?

This gown is tailored with a concealed zipper fastening at the back that allows for easy on and off. Its mock neck and short balloon sleeves create a timeless style so you can rock to many different occasions.

Where would I wear this dress?

It is an ideal pick for wedding parties and black-tie events because of its striking red colour that is equally as stylish as it is luxurious. Feel free to save for special dinner dates and cocktails.

What shoes should I wear with this dress?

We styled the look with PARIS TEXAS Black Croc-Effect Leather Slingback Sandals. This pair showcases open squared toes that are adorned with slender bands at the top. Slingback ankle straps offer your feet some extra stability and support so you can walk with ease.

What bag should I wear with this dress?

We styled the look with BALENCIAGA Hourglass Xs Black Velvet Tote. This bag has a black colour with a silver B logo embellishment to keep the ensemble cohesive. Hung by a top handle, it has a spacious inner that effortlessly stores all your essentials.

What we don't love about this dress?

This gown requires special care as velvet fabric is prone to leaving water marks behind, which compromise the overall look.
