What to Wear – New Years Eve

So here we are just days away from a new decade. This one I must say has flown by. It was exactly ten years ago that many of us were hording bottled water, snacks and extra toilet paper just in case all of the rumors about Y2K were actually true. I remember at the time reading about a woman who started collecting generators, bicycles, extra gasoline and all sorts of things that she could barter should the need arise if “the grid” went down. Of course the grid did not go down and hopefully it won’t…ever! I mean really wouldn’t we rather worry about what dazzling ensemble we are going to wear on New Years Eve and the leave the darling geek squads to figure out how to keep all those other imperative societal necessities going…wink,wink. Of course this is the one day of the year where the stakes are raised just a bit and dressing to the nines is not only suggested it’s expected. What ones wears depends completely on what the evenings plans are so whether you are heading out for a evening of cocktails and dancing, or perhaps a night at home with friends here are a few ideas to shake up your normal fashion routine.

Cocktails, dinner or dancing require something more than the usual LBD perhaps a sequined mini dress a’ la Sienna Miller or a 60’s homage to Verushka. I loved this Juicy Couture sequin mini dress paired with a sequin “smoking jacket” style coat by Phillip Lim. Top this off with a stack of rhinestone bracelets by Arden B. And nothing goes better with sequins than a slick of winged eyeliner. Try Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner for real lasting power.

To epitomize the modern ingénue pair classic pieces with leather and skyscrapper heels.
A crisp white blouse looks super fresh when worn with a slinky little mini like this one from BB Dakota. Add to that these Chloe Sevingy for Opening Ceremony western buckle heels. Finish the look with a pile of chain necklaces and a bold red lipstick by Illamasqua perfect for a night of champagne and hanging with good friends.

If your plans are leaning to a more casual turn why settle for ultra slouchy, when instead you can channel Kate Moss’ ever bohemian chic with this Sass & Bide Jumpsuit paired with a pair of thigh high boots by Stuart Weitzman. Add to that a chunky turquoise necklace from Vivre www.vivre.com. For tousled sexy hair try :L’Oreal Elnett hairspray

    Love the ideas for New Years eve! I prefer to use these ideas when traveling to San Fransico or New York. We tend to stay in when staying in Scottsdale, AZ. Heard the party at the W hotel is going to be the best!
