“Joy to the world the Lord has come…” and with him the party season. The easiest way to show some holiday cheer is to deck up in green without giving competition to the Christmas tree; and Santa’s elves! It’s time to be merry and not worry about how to work this shade! We have got the perfect round-up of green outfits that will add oodles of glam-quotient to your party look.

Ladies, if you have been postponing getting some green for your wardrobe, now is the time. Yes, it is possible to work this hue without looking like the Grinch who stole Christmas! In fact you can give Poison Ivy a run for her money if you pull off this shade right!

Dresses:

Confused about how to rock that fabulous green dress you just bought? Take inspiration from Christina Hendricks who wears the colour, on and off screen, like it was made for her. The best way to accessorise that chic green dress is with silver heels. Throw on a statement necklace (in silver of course) and you are good to go.

Jackets:

Grandma’s motto – A lady should never be seen out without a jacket – holds true till date. An edgy outerwear will immediately up the ante of your fashion game without going overboard. Take a look at these stylish green jackets to match with your neutral separates. Add bright-hued accessories (like Blair from ‘Gossip Girl’) for more flair!

Skirts and Jeans:

Sweaters:

Yes, green sweaters may remind you of elves, but you don’t have to look like one if you sport the shade right. It’s time to replace the bulky knits with fitted silhouettes in trendy patterns. Work this hue into your OOTD for increased versatility and to get maximum use out of your warm knits. Add a personal touch with a statement necklace and a chic clutch or a fedora (we see them popping up everywhere this winter).

Bottomwear:

Look especially smart at an office party as you switch your black and navy trousers for a pair of green ones. Complement it with a navy shirt or blazer for a smart get-up! You can even work it with a classic white shirt for major fashion points.
