New Year’s Eve is perhaps the most appropriate occasion to pull out all of the festive, glittery, even over-the-top, sartorial stops.
This is not the time for stretchy waist bands or practical footwear, NYE is about reflecting on the year past and welcoming another – which is to say: Put on something sparkly and celebrate!
Inspired by the juxtaposition of old and new, this NYE ensemble blends vintage and modern. A classic LBD is a NYE party go-to for me, but it’s important to remember to play with textures to keep the look interesting and chic. Vintage black feathers* give this otherwise simple silhouette a dramatic feel, making it special enough for the occasion.
Look for Less option: This beaded dress from Etsy
An embellished clutch and pointy pumps keep this decidedly 80s party dress looking elegant and the addition of gold ear cuffs give the look a bit of edge.
Add a smokey eye and a spritz of a spicy perfume and you’re ready for a night of champagne and celebration!
*I recommend vintage or faux only as not to contribute to the continued production of real feathers in fashion 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Years Eve! Here’s to a happy, healthy, and FUN 2016! God bless!
