Green dresses are always big news around Christmas, and it may seem a bit obvious to go for such a festive shade, but green is one of those rare colours that suits just about every skintone and hair colour, so if you want to try colour for a big party but you're unsure what'll work for you, one of these dresses is a very good bet.

For some reason green and frills and ruffles seem to come hand in hand this season, so perhaps stear clear of any big sparkly accessories to stop you looking too much like a Christmas tree. Stick to simple black or a tiny flash of subtle silver or gold instead.
