The Deal: Score a super cute red dress for less than $75 at ModCloth.com
The Lowdown: You know about the black dress — classic and simple. However, a red dress is equally as classic, but in a different way. It’s the classic night on the town dress, the dress you wear when you want people to notice you (in a good way, of course). Check out our picks for awesome red dresses, available online at Modcloth.
