Everyone needs to have one brightly colored dress to shake up their wardrobe. This silk See by Chloe dress I found at Shopbop a few years ago has a loose and almost boxy fit, which really makes it easier to wear such an intense color. I fell like a prim lady in red. To avoid some of the the attention that a bright red dress may warrant, I recommend making sure it is not too tight. However, there may be a time and place for bright and tight, so if it fits right, go for it!
