We’re only a few days out from the big night. What will you be wearing?
Whether you head to the fanciest steak joint with your loved one, gather with old friends for food and laughter or paint the town red with your girls, this is the perfect night to show a bit more skin or wear something flashier. Think silk, sequins, leather and lace! Below are a few styles that work great for ringing in the New Year.
1) Sport a cape top with silky shorts and suede heels. The blouse provides a little more breathing room for a night of overindulgence and the sleeves add proportion to bare legs in winter months.
Shirt: Olivaceous (purchased at Aimee boutique). Similar dress in black – ON SALE.
Shorts: BCBGeneration (No longer available). Similar here – ON SALE.
Shoes: B Brian Atwood (No longer available). Try this great, affordable style.
2) Try a flirty romper with a feminine bag and strappy heels. I love that this romper covers a bit more skin than most on the market. Again, play off proportions and show some leg but keep arms and chest covered. Or vice versa. You could also do a longer pant jumpsuit with a strapless top! The open back and flouncy short bottom on this one offers subtle sex appeal without going over-the-top. See links below for a variety of jumpsuit/romper options.
3) Wear Sequins. Hanging with friends at home? Dress the jacket down with flare jeans, pumps and a fun graphic tee. Or dress it up with a silk cami and black pants for a night on the town.
4) You can NEVER go wrong with a LBD. This one by Amanda Uprichard comes in a faded black and features a beautiful high neckline which is very of-the-moment. I’ll keep it simple and pair with fun earrings or a gold cuff and black heels for a “classic, can’t fail” look. Top with a leather jacket for extra oomph and added warmth when bar hopping.
