Is this too Summery for Christmas Day?

I bought this dress a few months ago, and it is yet to have an outing. Really want to wear it on Christmas Day, but is it too Summery? Thought maybe I could wear forest green tights and a scarf? I'm crap at this kind of thing, but have lost a load of weight and would like to make the most of it grin

I wouldn't wear green, maybe go black tights & scarf and work the monochrome look which is hot right now??

I would wear with black opaqes and biker boots for a winter look. Plus scarf .

A berry/oxblood/burgundy shade would look lovely with your dress (scarf/tights that colour?) and would make it more wintery. I also think definitely wear boots with it.

Deffo not green tights, unless you really want to look like an elf. smile

Black opaques and black shoeboots (or biker boots as already said) would be good.

It's lovely. I agree with others that black opaques and ankle boots are the way to go.

It will work really well as a winter white.
I would wear it with black or grey wooly tights, definitely not green!

OMG love the dress! I'd go for black opaque tights with boots - biker or ankle with heeks and a statement necklace or collar! So gorgeous!

Ooh yes - a glittery collar thing would be brilliant with it.
