One of our favorite red dresses of the resort season is this playful, full-skirted look by Donna Karan. Somehow, with the model's slicked-back bun and ruby red lips, we can't help but be reminded of a modern Audrey Hepburn.

Ohne Titel can always be counted upon for a few red options, and they didn't disappoint for resort. This soft terry dress is a perfect, season-less wardrobe staple; just add opaque tights for winter, or pair with an embellished sandal come spring.

The tee-like top ensures this red Preen dress will never look "overdone," while a knee-skimming asymmetrical hem keeps the look interesting.
