The holiday parties are kicking in high gear. I wore this number for our annual family Christmas party with fifty plus of aunts, uncles, and lots of cousins from Peter’s side. All complimented on the gorgeous this deep forest green dress. Thanks fam!
Deep forest green was an essential color last year and will continue to be important. The best way to put it, it’s the perfect alternative to black, especially for the holidays. It’s a festive color for those that aren’t fans of bright flashy hues. Both flattering to all skin tones and a subtle way to add color.
An uneven hem hits right below the knee keeps this feminine dress flirty and plenty of room to dance in. With a high mock neck, it was the perfect piece for the cool winter. This Lewit dress is now sold out. However I linked a few similar ones for you to shop below.
The Statement Third Piece
The Junya Watanabe is a statement jacket (similar) I’m crazy about. You can tell as I’ve styled a couple of times on here and here. I always get tons of “OOhs and ahhhs” of how beautiful it is, to the point of touching the texture velvet jacquard sleeves (I should really charge for that). It completes the entire outfit by matching the deep forest green to the sleeves, while adding some edge with biker details and metal trims. Definitely taking this holiday attire up a few notches!
I’ve added tights adorned with black crystals for a bit of holiday sparkle. Then a classic pair of shiny patent leather Mary Janes from Manolo Blahnik. To top it all off, finished the look with a pair of OTT tortoise cat eye sunnies, shiny black leather gloves and bold statement earrings, to round up the accessories.
Super easy taking it from day to evening. Wore this outfit for work and then to the party. My feet did get achy by the end of the evening, but it was well worth it.
Dare to try to the alternative black color, deep forest green?
