If there’s one night to bring out the sequin, it’s NYE. Sure, sequins may give you Vegas bachelorette vibes, but don’t worry there are plenty of ways to make sequin feel fashion-forward and chic. The key is to go for a less predictable look (skip the body-con sequin mini for example). Instead go for a sequin blazer, a wrap dress or midi skirt!
Looking to be a little more subtle this NYE? Velvet is always a good way to go. Not only is it super festive and glam, but it’s also very versatile. You can easily re-wear a velvet blazer with jeans or dress down a velvet slip dress with sneakers. I personally love a fun 70’s inspired velvet flared pant! I have a few key velvet pieces in my closet and I’m always happy I can re-wear them every Fall/Winter.
There’s no better time to try one of the big trends we saw during Fall/Winter 2019 fashion week--feathers! I love this trend, but of course, it’s a little extra and not the most wearable. But New Year’s is definitely one of those times you can get away with it. I’ve been seeing lots of festive feather tops, feather hem details, and feather furs.
Luxe fabrics like silk and satin are the perfect way to up your glam factor for NYE. They’re easy to wear and re-wear many different ways, so now’s the perfect time to buy that satin piece you’ve had your eye on. For casual plans, wear a satin cami, jeans and a statement pair of earrings. For more glam plans, wear a silk midi dress with strappy sandals and a faux fur!
Shiny metallics are a great option for dressing up without going too over the top. If you’re going somewhere more on the casual side or you’re not sure how everyone else is going to dress for the occasion, try a fun gold or silver party top! I’ve been seeing a lot of fun, high shine pieces that are surprisingly re-wearable. Of course, a metallic pleated midi skirt is also always on point in my book. So many cute styles below!
The solution for those who aren’t crazy about all the NYE glitz and sparkle? Patent leather. Perfect for that cool-girl look. Whether you’ll be house party hopping all night or you’re going to a trendy dinner, you really can’t go wrong with pair of vinyl pants and a bodysuit. If you’re set on wearing jeans, edge things up a bit with a vinyl bodysuit and some heeled booties!
Sheer is always fun for the holidays and NYE! I love how sexy, edgy and unexpected it always looks. You can go for a fun embellished sheer top, a sheer skirt or just a sheer slip. If you just want a touch of sheer in a fashion-forward way you could also always try some printed sheer socks with flirty heels. Here are a few great options:
In case your outfit still needs some extra NYE sparkle, here are some finishing touches for your outfit. Rhinestone earrings, embellished tights or a fun headband are an easy way to top off your party look. You guys know I love them details!
