The fashion pendulum has swung and at the moment the much-fêted party dress can feel a little too girly, so if you are going to opt for a frock this Christmas pick something with a bit more balls.
Orange or tomato red is a punchy, passionate colour that will get you noticed and is one of the few brights that looks good with black. Snap up one of these dresses for a bash and all you need to team it with is some opaques and heels, easy! Suede shoes will emphasise the strong colour even more but don't forget a little fake tan or bronzer to warm up your winter complexion.
