It Turns Out This Color Trend Is Actually Perfect For Holiday Dressing


If you tend to fall into the habit of wearing black for holiday gatherings, the H&M Holiday Shop is going to convince you to bring a new, yet equally easy-to-wear hue, into your wardrobe for the party season. Currently living within the retailer's festive offering are a slew of pieces in a rich shade of deep green that'll bring the same elegance and refinement to your look as a classic black ensemble. And, none of these styles will break the bank, so you can plan on picking up a couple of pieces for under $100.

And while a dark green hue seems like an obvious choice, H&M is serving up the sophisticated shade in a way that feels fresh and not at all cliche. In the lineup, you'll see the color on luxe-looking fabrics, in monochromatic prints, and on of-the-moment silhouettes, like this puff-sleeve top with a sweetheart neckline, $17.99. The holiday shop is also not without sparkle — there's a long-sleeve mini dress up for grabs in a shimmering dark green for $49.99.


However, it's the combination of a leopard print and the dark green shade that make pieces like this Jacquard-Weave Dress, $39.99, really standout from the rest. The sheen of the elevated print looks especially luxurious on this longer, straight-cut blazer for $49.99. And, when the blazer is paired with the matching tapered high-waist pant, $34.99, it'll make for a chic alternative to traditional cocktail attire. Finish off the look with a pair of sleek booties and a modern earring.


As for the more casual occasions? Pick up this cozy Knit Mock-Turtleneck Sweater, $34.99, and style it with a pair of faux leather trousers and a set of gleaming silver hoops — both of which can be found on H&M at wallet-friendly prices.

As the holiday season quickly approaches, now's the time to snag stylish pieces to have on hand for work events, festive dinners, and seasonal soirées. Continue on to start shopping styles in a dark green hue before the holiday invites roll in.
