Stylewatch: Christmas colours
We’ve already come to terms with the fact that this season’s must-have colour, camel, does nothing for our Irish pallor. There’s a reason why Italian women love it: sallow skin is a prerequisite to work this shade.
For those of us blessed with a more alabaster-hued skin, we recommend cooler shades: silver, pale purples and greys. This shimmering palette will ensure that you stand out from the crowd, and it will also enhance your complexion.
On top of all this, these shades offer an alternative to the hackneyed black and red Christmas cocktail dresses currently crowding the dance floors. We’re loving Sile Seoige’s grey-toned dress, left, a snip at a mere €99, which is from the newly opened Ingenue boutique in the Westbury Mall. Ingenue, Unit 25 Westbury Mall, D2, tel: (01) 671-9836
