Everyone just loves to tear apart their closet looking for the perfect party outfit, right? And you just adore frantically running to the store because you “have nothing to wear”, right? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Whether you’re having trouble letting go of the greatness of 2016 or you are pumped to start your new year resolutions, it’s time to celebrate! With celebration must come a badass New Year’s Eve outfit to celebrate the past and embrace what 2017 has to offer. Don’t be the last minute shopper who think she will magically find the perfect outfit at the first store she walks into. Plan ahead! Here are some ideas to help you find the perfect outfit to help you shine all night long:
Go with the classic sequinned dress for a simple ensemble. Throw this over some cute tights with booties, and you’re ready to go!
If sequins aren’t really your thing, add it in more subtle ways throw jewelry, nails, or makeup.
- Take the choker trend to a whole other level of sexy with a champagne deep v top and classes it up with black trousers like Gigi.
- Add subtle festive vibes through a fun sparkling manicure.
- A little light shimmer eyeshadow, lush lashes, bronzed skin, and a nude or dark lip and you are going to be the talk of the town. Don’t forget about those brows.
If you wouldn’t be caught dead in anything remotely sequin-related, velvet and silk fabrics are your best friend. A velvet / silk dress or a top with a simple black skirt with heels will make jaws drop just as much as the other disco balls around you.
If NYE is your jam, go all out. Let the sequins just throw up all over you…in a beautiful manner of course. If not, add sparkle in subtle ways through makeup and jewelry! NYE is a time to really do it up and feel extra special, confident, and really do you! If you procrastinated big time, and it’s New Year’s day, I suggest wearing a typical outfit you would normally wear, just add a little extra bling and do your makeup a little more glitzy than usual, but don’t wait until the last minute and spend the night fighting with your closet. Take time now to think about it, plan your outfit, and feel beautiful and badass. Crack open your Hanger app and schedule that outfit! Less time stressing about what to wear equals more time to spend having fun in your perfect outfit.
Peace and love,
