Perfect New Years Eve Ensembles!

The biggest party of the year is just around the corner. Ladies, for us this is the night where almost anything goes. New Years Eve soirées let you really show off your personal sense of style, accessorize to the max and take things to edge (if not over the top). Instead of staring at your closet for hours on end, trying to decide what to wear, personalize your ensemble by building off the following basic pieces.

Option #1: The Little Black Dress
This classic is a classic for a reason. The Little Black Dress is so universal that it’s perfect for any shape: curvy, athletic, thin etc. You can go strapless, off the shoulder, empire waist or even something full of ruffles for a dramatic flare. If you do go with the Little Black Dress; accessorize bold colored shoes and match your accessories to that bright hue as well. That way they really pop against the black silhouette.

Option #2: Sparkles & Sequins
Think the ‘ball drop’ in Times Square. If you want to be really flashy this NYE - this is the way to go. No accessories needed with this outfit choice. A dress covered in sequins is bold enough that a simple pair of dangly earrings will suffice. Really, this is the only time you’re going to get away with wearing dresses this flashy so I say: go for it!

Option #3: GOLD!
Gold tones are really big this year. If a dress isn’t your scene; try a pair of shiny gold leggings! This is another piece that, if it weren’t for NYE, it wouldn’t really be something you could sport on a regular day. Not to mention the wow factor. You’ll surely stand out in a crowd with these knock-outs. Keep in mind; the gold leggings are your base piece of the outfit so pair them up with a black (or brown) flirty top. Then polish off the look by layering on various length gold necklaces; add some gold bangles for some extra flare.

Keep these ideas in mind when you’re planning your New Years Eve ensemble and you can save yourself the stress of wondering: “what am I going to wear?!”
