The New LD: Little Red Dress

We love the little black dress, we’re fans of the little white dress, but now it’s 2015 and we’re ready for something new. It’s classic, it’s bold, it’s the perfect pop of sexy, it’s the LRD. Little red dress.

Think Jennifer Lawrence at the Oscar’s, Rihanna at the Grammy’s, or Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman; red is glamorous, and what Valley girl doesn’t love a little (or a lot) of glamour?

The newest staple for your closet, you’ll wonder how you ever survived without it. Not only will you never stress over the perfect Valentine’s Day ensemble again, but you’ll also have a red-hot, showstopper dress ready at your fingertips for any last-minute occasion. As American fashion designer Bill Blass once said, “When in doubt, wear red.”

The expensive dye was only worn by the famous and wealthy. Thanks to synthetic dyes and the mass-production of clothes within the fashion industry today, the “hey, look at me” hue is available for virtually everyone, everywhere – including downtown State College!

With Valentine’s Day coming up, stores are stocked with the passionate, love-provoking color.Valley did some window-shopping and found some cute, sassy and sexy LRDs that won’t break the bank. Pop in Urban Outfitters to try on a classy, lace skater or People’s Nation to slip into a steamy, sheath bodycon before they’re all gone.

Every girl needs a LRD in her closet, even if it’s only to bring some color back to State through this dreary winter!

In the end, whether you’re wearing it to wow your significant other or to simply turn heads and show them what they’re missing, 2015 is the year to invest in the timeless staple that is the little red dress.
