Five Festive Party Looks for New Year’s Eve

Dec 16, 2019

While Christmas has not yet come and gone, I have already moved on to 2020.  I am ready for a new year, so let’s talk about outfits for a glorious New Year’s Eve.  Because a New Year should always be greeted in style.

Whether you’re wearing the perfect cocktail dress of jeans and a chic sweater, a pair of dramatic earrings can really lift your look.  This pair from Eye Candy strikes a nice balance between bold and dainty.  I adore the soft teal hue of the drops.

These Kendra Scott Corza earrings offer a long, delicate look.  For something minimalist, try these discounted Lizzie Fortunato abalone disc earrings.  Not a fan of drop earrings?  Baublebar has these bold pearl ear crawlers and these interesting, but subtle, Taj crawlers.

Shine on you crazy diamond in a sparkly, eye-catching blouse.  This Bardot bodysuit can be tucked into a simple black pant or a sleek denim jean.  Or recycle your office pencil skirt for a classic look.

Prefer a v-neck?  Bardot also makes this Siren long sleeve bodysuit.  For something under-$50, this Leith square-neck top is fabulous.  Plus-size?  This Halogen clip-dot metallic top is so chic.

Headbands are the hottest accessory on the market right now.  Instead of the knotted velvet headbands that you see on many bloggers, I chose this graduated pearl headband from Lele Sadoughi.  I love how pretty it is.

For something more affordable, this Lovers + Friends headband is a great option.  Looking for something daintier?  I love this Anthro headband and this pearl wire-headband from TJMaxx.

Wear it with your hair down, or put your hair in a messy bun, and add the headband to complete the look.

If you’re in need of the perfect little black dress, New Year’s Eve is a great excuse to buy one.  This Eliza J off-shoulder dress definitely caught my eye.  I love the wider, asymmetrical shoulder strap.   It also comes in a pretty berry hue if you’re good on black dresses.

This Vince Camuto one-sleeve dress with a ruched waist would be very flattering.  For something you could repurpose for work or cocktail, this Chelsea28 cap sleeve dress is a good option.  Prefer something casual?  This AE mock neck sweater dress is a good option.  Plus-size?  This RSVP midi-dress has a chic dotted-sheer sleeve.

Exhausted by the idea of getting dressed up for the holiday?  All you need is a great lipstick and a cool pair of shoes.  That’s it.

These mesh-crystal booties from Express are the epitome of a cool party shoe.  These Marc Fisher Zala pumps have a square-heel in case you plan on doing a lot of walking.   For a flat option, I love these crystal-embellished pink satin mules from Banana.

What is your favorite party look?  And do you look forward to dressing for holiday parties?

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
