rereading the current definition, yes, it does say (but it's very hard to notice) that "it will become her default outfit". Why limit it to this? this pretty much limits the trope to Anime Chinese Girl, Dragon Lady, The Chanteuse, and other characters who's very likely to have a sexy red uniform. In contrast with it's general name. Also, a lot of the current context-ed example are "worn once, but also plot point". which as you said, is Invoked Trope.
as for 76, yes. That's a good distinction, but with the name as it is, it's not likely to be noticed even if we rewrite the whole thing to focus on that. And if changed, it better reflect that it's not "<character type> in Red". Because it's about red dress characterizing a woman instead of a female archetype that wears red dress. Say, Red Dress Of Sensuality Though with that said, I gotta ask: Is my definition of "female character wears red in order to bring attention to her" a different trope from this? If you narrow it down. is "sexy character is associated with wearing a sexy red dress" really all there is to this trope? Or is there more to it like "A red dress brings attention to a woman's sexuality" (regardless of whether she's hollywoodPudgy or supermodel thin)?
