A “not so formal approach to New Year’s Eve dressing”
New Year’s Eve is the kind of occasion where going all out with your outfit is entirely expected; but that doesn’t mean you have to wear a dress to look fabulous.
You can be glamorous for the big night even in your most comfortable skinny jeans or black slacks. The trick is pairing your jeans or slacks with the right pieces and accessories to give them a dressed-up look, and you can be comfortable and chic for the countdown to 2018!
Keep Calm and Embellish!
For New Year’s Eve, pair your jeans with a top that dresses up the look. With a skinny Jean, you want to choose a shirt that’s long enough to balance the tight fit of the jeans — your top’s hem should at least reach your hips, although you can choose one with a drop hem that covers your “junk in the trunk”. A sequin tank or tunic is my fave for a New Year’s Eve party, but you can also choose for a beaded or sparkly metallic version. If you want a little more coverage for the cold weather, go with a long-sleeve style that falls off the shoulder or features the popular “cold shoulder style” on the
arms to make your outfit stand out!
Bring on the layers, without cake!
If you’re worried about being cold pair your skinny jeans with a blazer or long duster coat. Not only can it keep you warm, but it’s also long enough to cover your bottom if your top is a bit short. Don’t wear a business Blazer Instead, slip into a velvet moto jacket or a sparkly blazer — wear it with the jeans or slacks and a silky or solid camisole top.
If you want an edge to your look, go with a leather blazer or Moto Jacket and pair it with a silky tank top or blouse to soften the appearance of leather and denim. Pair some sparkly leopard print shoes for a bit of fashion fun!
When walking into your party…make a statement!
The right shoes can get you ready for any New Year’s Eve party. Pumps work well with both Jeans and slacks, so reach for a pair that helps dress up your denim. Velvet or Embellished leather – peep toe heels are an ideal option — you can even find styles that feature rhinestones, crystals or other embellishments to really stand out. Stilettos in a gold or silver finish with embellished straps bring more drama to your look!
If you’re worried about your feet getting cold, boots are the perfect option. Gorgeous booties or embroidered mules look amazing!
Skinny jeans tuck neatly into a pair of tall boots, so choose a knee-high style with high heels to look fierce at your party! If the heels are too high you can go with a shorter heel and have the focal point be your top and or outerwear. Don’t be uncomfortable or you won’t enjoy yourself.
Puttin on the Glitz
If any night calls for statement jewelry, it’s New Year’s Eve, and adding some bling to your outfit takes your look to the next level. If you’re wearing an embellished blouse, let the blouse make the statement and your earrings just compliment the outfit. If you want a more playful approach, chandelier earrings with colorful crystals are a festive touch. Some of my faves are rhinestone embellished large hoops.
Maybe a cuff bracelet, and of course a beautiful bag to tie it all together!
I hope you enjoy my suggestions and all have a wonderful New Years Eve!
