6 Green Dresses to Ring in the New Year


Celebrate Green New Year's Resolutions with a Sustainable and Stylish Dress

One more holiday hurdle to bring us into 2010, but what to wear? We are keeping it simple this season and suggest scouring vintage and second-hand shops, raiding a friend's closet, or--if you absolutely must satisfy your sweet tooth for shopping--shop slow and green. We are bringing it back to the basics with black and white dresses that can be accessorized and worn again in the year to come. Click through for 6 Green Dresses to wear while ringing in the New Year and keep coming back--we'll have haute pumps and jewelry to accessorize:
