If you are at all superstitious, then where you ring in the New Year sets the tone for the rest of the year to come. With this in mind, what you wear for such an occasion can be just as important as where you are drinking your bubbly. With just a couple of weeks to go before 2013, we’ve come up with some style suggestions that will help you find the perfect New Year’s Eve look for any type of fete you choose to attend. So, whether you are just chilling at home with friends and family or painting the town with glitter, we have five attire suggestions that will make your New Year’s Eve shine!
1) Laid-Back Chic
Celebrating at home with friends and family? No need to wander around in your pajamas, opt for a causal yet sexy look instead. Whether you are just hanging out with a few friends at home or someone else’s abode, throw on a pair of skinnies with some cute ballerina flats, a fun fur vest and your ready for 2013. Or, if you are the one hosting the party, why not step it up a notch. Pair your skinnies with a silky top, fitted blazer, and a pair of pointy toe heels so while you pour the champagne for your guests, you will look glamorous too.
2) Party Girl
Home for New Year’s Eve…no way, never! This is the night when you wear your most outrageous dress, drink champagne, and kiss a cute boy at midnight. So, for you dancing queen we suggest wearing playful pieces, such as, a tiered chiffon twirl skirt, a backless pearl beaded dress, or a flirty tight sequin dress. Any of these little numbers will make you stand out more than the Times Square ball. And, don’t forget your glitter heels. Now, go knock em’ dead girl!
3) Tuxedo Inspired
So, you’re going to tie one this NYE and venture out among the masses, but you aren’t necessarily feeling a dress. No problem. Just switch up your attire this year and tap into the menswear trend. Wear a tailored tuxedo suit with a silky blouse and be sure to add feminine pieces (killer heels and clutches, of course) and tie it all together with a deep red lip. After that, all you will need is a boy to kiss. With this tantalizing look, this should be no problem. Ooo la la!
Brights aren’t just for summer anymore. During fashion week, vibrant hues strutted their stuff down the runway for fall/winter and so should you this NYE. Wear a bright color for the party and allow this wow-worthy piece to stand out in the crowd. However, the best way to pull this trend off is to pair your brights with neutrals. While we know choosing brights makes you the boldest of trendsetters, a chic neutral heel and clutch will help to tone your outfit down and not blind your fellow party-goers.
If you are ringing in the New Year at a black tie affair, remember, black tie doesn’t always mean black dress. Instead, opt for feminine pale hues and stand apart from the commonly chosen darker shades. Wear a slinky pink or beige slip dress, a fabulous fur, and some glitzy earrings and watch the heads turn as you gracefully walk by. If you want to accent your legs, then a long gold metal-foiled slit dress will accomplish this task and look stunning on the dance floor.
