No matter what new year we are bringing in, you can bet sequins and sparkles are going to be a thing! So when in doubt, sparkle it out! I would put money on the fact that you probably have an old sequin dress or skirt hanging in your closet that is begging to see the light of day again!
Two new trends that I am particularly loving this year though are metallics and velvet. Both are perfect for any dressier events that you might have coming up such as New Year’s or winter weddings. So while sequins and sparkle will never go out of style, if you are wanting to try something new this year, a little metallic dress or maybe a velvet jumpsuit might seal the deal on that New Year’s kiss! Speaking of New Year’s kiss, how cute is this bag?!
I will be braving the cold for New Year’s so I’m happy that the velvet will actually provide a little warmth. *Nevermind the completely bare back aspect* When picking out a New Year’s Eve outfit dress I always look for something that is fun and flirty but doesn’t show too much skin. This dress was the perfect compromise. Business in the front, party in the back!
If you need a little last minute inspiration of other outfit ideas, I’ve linked a few favorites below! Good news: there is still time to grab majority of these before the ball drops and we ring in the new year 🙂
I am keeping it short and sweet today on account that I am battling a cold and this Benadryl is going to make me start dozing off. So if you see a few grammatical errors or something that doesn’t make any sense, I chalk it up to the drugs 😉
ChicwIsh is a brand that I have talked about multiple times on the blog, but in case you are new around here or have yet to hear about them, Chicwish is an online boutique with some of the cutest, on trend pieces! Almost all of my recent event wear has come from them. They are currently running their end of the year sale so on top of everything being 15% off, you get to take an additional 20% off with code NYE20! Both my top and skirt are from there and with the discounted pricing, each one is only $36! I am wearing a size extra small in the skirt and it is pretty darn skimpy so if you are in between sizes I would suggest sizing up. If skimpy is what you are going for this New Year’s Eve (hey, no judgement here!), than you know what to do!
I love the lace-up detail of the skirt and since I was already going trend crazy with the skirt, another bell sleeve top seemed like the perfect combo. If you have checked my blog or Instagram lately than you know that I’ve been wearing bell sleeves like they are going out of style. So much so I still have a few more to share with you guys! I actually picked up a bell sleeve dress today and had to rationalize with myself for a good 10 minutes why I did NOT need yet another bell sleeve piece of clothing.
If you have yet to decide what you are wearing for New Year’s Eve, there is still time to snag something and have it here by the big day if you order today! I’ve rounded up a few of my other favorite looks from Chicwish below and have an entire page of outfit inspiration here as well.
*I just want to mention that this post is NOT sponsored in any way. I rave about Chicwish all of the time so I wanted to highlight some of their great pieces for the New Year!*
I have been dying to show you guys this look for months now and New Years Eve inspiration seemed like the perfect time to do so! My love for jumpsuits runs VERY deep. If you search “jumpsuit” on the blog’s sidebar you will find several different posts sharing my love for them and why they are perfect for just about every single event. If you are looking for just a few reasons why they are hands down my favorite piece of clothing, check out this post here.
I first wore this jumpsuit for my first night at New York Fashion Week. I felt exactly like Carrie Bradshaw and after receiving several compliments on my look, I felt accomplished for deciding to wear such a bold, chic look. We tend to want to stick to what we know. And more often than not, play it extremely safe. I dare you this New Years to make a statement! Ring in the New Year with a new you, or at least a new and exciting outfit 😉 I’ve rounded up a few of the best for this special night (all under $100) below!
With only 2 days until Christmas, the holiday looks are in full effect around here. I tend to jump on new trends and wear them like they are going out of style which is completely the case with all of these bell sleeve tops. I seriously can’t get enough of them! I have about 4 other looks coming to the blog that all have bell sleeves and a lot of them have mini skirts too.
I love adding leather into my wardrobe when the cooler weather hits. Leather mini skirts just up the sass level of an outfit. For a night out, holiday party or New Years Eve, leather mini skirts are a great way to add a fun and festive factor. Go against the norm and try an alternative color to black. My personal favorite for the holiday season, is red or burgundy like this one that I am wearing.
I am off to a Christmas brunch with the ladies in my family. It’s a tradition that we do every year and it’s one of my favorites! After that will be a full day of wrapping presents because I haven’t even started. I brought all of my presents to my parents house so that I can steal mama’s wrapping paper 🙂
