Street Style: Meet The LRD (Long Red Dress)


Our LBDs are currently one of the trustiest garments we own – it’s our go-to item when we simply have nothing to wear. But we’ve recently spotted a new trend in town that promises to deliver everything that our black dresses do, and more. Meet the Long Red Dress – summer’s answer to the LBD, and a future classic in the making.

Of course, we first spotted this style secret on our very own LOOK What I’m Wearing gallery on Ellie Mack and Denisa Aghiorghitoaie, who both know that the LRD’s best friend is a black accessory.

Denisa’s mannish H&M black coat and hat instantly make her flowing red maxi (also from H&M) city-ready, with her Aldo sandals toughening up the look. And we love how Ellie has reworked a plunging evening gown from Boohoo for daytime duty, adding a Topshop leather jacket and peep-toe boots, as well as statement sunnies from Asos.

Looks like we’ve found the perfect outfit for hot summer days and
cocktail-filled nights. We’ve even featured our fave LRDs currently on the high street below. You can thank us later…
