Whether your are looking to shop the collection, or just need a little style inspiration - we're offering up tips and tricks to help pull together the perfect outfit for your New Years Eve party!
New Years Eve - Outfit Idea #1: Play with Texture!
With it's great artsy-vibe and rich, jewel tone color this beautiful dress (Lela Rose ) is perfect choice for New Years Eve! Play with a mix of textures by pairing it with a shaggy, deconstructed jacket (Marc by Marc Jacobs), some comfortable patent leather kitten heels (Marc Jacobs), a vintage evening clutch and your favorite designer timepiece!
New Years Eve - Outfit Idea #2: Don't Over Complicate It!
If you are going to mix and match evening separates be careful not to over-complicate your outfit. Many evening wear styles have beading, ruffles or embellishments and you don't want the pieces you choose to compete with each other. Focus on one key piece or detail, and keep your accessories and accents simple to avoid over styling. Here we chose an cocktail dress (Carmen Marc Valvo) in a bold hue, and accented it with a sheer black striped evening blazer (Carlisle), black vintage clutch, costume jewelry, and black velvet d'orsay kitten heels (Sigerson Morrison).
New Years Eve - Outfit Idea #3: Elevate Neutrals with Metallics!
Your New Years Eve look doesn't have to be loud to stand out. We love the idea of pairing neutral pieces with dressier metallics to create a unique evening look. Keep it sophisticated by minimize the contrast between the pieces. For example, this muted gold vintage dress is shown here with brown heels (Pedro Garcia), and a neutral zebra print blazer (Dana Buchman).
New Years Eve - Outfit Idea #4: Be Menswear Inspired!
If your going to embrace the menswear trend for New Years you have our full approval! Break out your tuxedo striped pants (Haute Hippie), and juxtapose them against a delicate lace blouse (Robert Rodriguez)! Finish off your look with some patent leather flats (Stuart Weitzman), and a jacket done in menswear inspired tweed material (BCBGMAXAZRIA)!
New Years Eve 2015 - Outfit Idea #5: You Don't Have to Dress Up!
Ok, well actually you do - but that doesn't mean you have to actually wear a dress. A fluid trouser (Alice + Olivia), mixed and matched with other evening-worthy separates in your wardrobe (Nanette Lepore, Giorgio Armani), can look just as stylish as any frock, if you do it right. Try to incorporate at least a little shine, shimmer or sparkle on top and no one will ever notice that your pants are just basic black. Shown here with a vintage clutch, costume jewelry, and J Crew heels.
New Years Eve - Outfit Idea #6: Go for Jewel Tones!
With their rich, dark hues jewel tones are perfect for New Years Eve - especially when paired with black and gold accents! Here we've paired a royal purple brocade jacket (Teri Jon), magenta tank top (Linda Allard), gold striped skirt (Elie Tahari), and black patent leather flats (Salvatore Ferragamo) to create a bold color blocked effect - that is both traditional and unexpected at the same time!
