It’s almost 2017!
Few things are more exciting than the anticipation of getting ready for New Year’s Eve. It’s the joy of a whole new year’s adventures, the possibility for a new love/a kiss at midnight and even better things than you can imagine all wrapped into a single evening. That can make picking the right outfit a little difficult.
To make it easier, here are six ideas (from casual to formal) to help you with every type of NYE event.
For the Cozy Night In or Self-Hosted Party
Sometimes the perfect New Year’s Eve is spent at home with your favorite people. Whether you’re watching Dick Clark’s Rocking Eve at home or decking out the apartment for your own celebration, it’s always fun to dress up. Here are a couple low-key and chic looks to have you picture-ready until the clock strikes midnight.
Feel like staying cozy? Pair a turtleneck sweater with statement pants and bold shoes. You’ll be comfortable, which should translate into an extra-bright smile in your pictures. After all, if you don’t feel right, it definitely shows – despite how fabulous your look may be.
For the New York Party
If you’re like me and planning to spend New Year’s out with friends, it’s time to pick out a show-stopping look! New York is one of the most well-dressed cities in the world. So, you’ll need something to help you stand out. A little metallic hue may be just what you need.
Want something quick and traditional? Pair a sequin or vibrant dress with all-neutral-colored shoes and jewelry. The softer tones will let the dress, and ultimately you, shine.
For the Gala
Now I know some of you are planning to spend the night at a more formal event. It’s not every day that you get to wear a gown, so make it count! Style a dress that complements your tastes and figure.
Did you pick something form-fitting and modern? Complement the gorgeous look with solid-colored heels, elegant drop earrings and a formal bag. (My favorite is the ever-trendy, new Gucci shoulder bag. However you can easily find a chain-adorned purse for under $50.) Just like with the above sequin example, the stark contrast will make you stand out even more.
Have a great night everyone! For more ideas, check out my street style board on Pinterest. And, most importantly…..HAPPY NEW YEAR!
