Last Minute Guide for your NYE style!

Wait a moment…is it December 30th already? You betcha! The month has flown by, Christmas has ended (ugh!) and the magical night that is New Year’s Eve is right around the corner – a.k.a. tomorrow. You may be totally prepared (like I am for onceor you may be freaking out on your way to the mall to find that perfect look for your big bash!

Well fear no more – I am here to give you some quick style tips so that you can look (and feel!) dazzling as you enter the big 2-0-1-6! I am going to show you how to put a look together with just five simple steps. 

STEP ONE

When I am assembling a look, I begin with the statement piece and style every other item around that. The statement piece could be a necklace, a pair of cute shoes, or a chic dress. On NYE, you will want to make your statement the outfit (dress, skirt/top, etc.)! These lovely ladies below put the focus on their NYE dress…

STEP TWO

Tights or no tights?  I always wear tights when I go out this time of year because it is usually freezing. Tights can be anywhere from nylons (nude colour) to cute fashion tights in navy or black!

I like the unexpected sequins. Would be cute dressed down too.:

Tip: Wearing tights will lengthen the life of your shoes

(less friction from your heel against the material of the skin).

STEP THREE

Shoes, shoes, shoes! Open toe – go for it. Closed toe – go for it. All bets are off! I definitely recommend matching your shoes to your dress. However, if the dress is a crazy colour, in many cases black goes perfectly. The fancier, the better!

STEP FOUR

Add a little bling! I love jewelry as much as the next girl, and I definitely recommend it for NYE! However, it is not a must. Keep in mind, if you have a super sparkly (sequined) dress, you will want to make sure the jewelry doesn’t get lost! I recommend piling on some arm candy, and a snazzy pair of earrings!

STEP FIVE

Keeping it clutch with a matching clutch is the final step of putting your look together! Matching is definitely not necessary, but pulling out like colours in your outfit’s scheme is a great idea! Got gold sequins? Try a bronze toned clutch to soften the sparkle! If you can’t find a suitable colour…just like the shoes…turn to black!

#WishlistWednesday: The Dress of the Party!

#WISHLISTWEDNESDAYWe are nearing the end of December, and you know what that means…New Year’s Eve! The night that you say good bye to another year of great accomplishments…whatever they may be. Whether you are staying home, or going out for a big night on the town…you need to look great to ring in the big 2-0-1-6. I have spent my past New Year’s Eve at parties, cozying up with the pup at home and of course, the good ole’ low key intimate gathering watching the ball drop…but this year, it is time to live it up in the city…and for that, I am pulling out all of the stops!

So I might as well blog about it right? This week for #WishlistWednesday, I am going to show you the razzle-dazzling looks that are out there, waiting and pleading to be your date for NYE (and mine, of course!).

Sequined Bodycon Dress, Dynamite, $39.95 $18.00

This is my first pick. What other occasion can you rock a completely gold sequined dress and get away with it? Well, I mean, there is always room for a little sparkle in your life…but this dress is a showstopper, and the cutout in the back makes it even better! What I love most about this dress though, is how it is sexy, but not sleazy. There is a fine line…and this passes my test!

Sequined Bodycon Dress

Camilla Sequined Bodycon Dress, The Bay$155.00 $108.50

Like the last one, this is equally as perfect for NYE. Bodycon can be your best friend your worst enemy. The trick with finding a great bodycon dress is finding the one that you don’t have to continuously pull down all night long. I try and look for the bodycon dress that has a length that hits my mid thigh – that way it usually will stay down on it’s own. This dress is perfect because it is the right length, the neckline is gorgeous and there is still a little sexy cut out on the side.

Sequined Jumpsuit, H&M, $59.99 $39.99

Now, this is not a dress. But rompers and jumpsuits are completely in this season. There is so much you could do with this sparkly jumpsuit. You could dress it up with jewelry, and pair it with a blazer. You could wear it alone with a hot pair of heels to go with it. Or you could add a sequined belt and some crazy bangles…the possibilities are endless. But either way, you are stealing the show with this look.

Sequined Jumpsuit

Three amazing looks. It’s going to be tough to decide just exactly what I am going to rock this NYE. However, I know one thing – there will be sequins…lots of sequins. Got to look jazzed up on the last night of the year, right?

What are your NYE plans? Have you picked out the winning outfit yet? Let me know in the comments below…

CLASSIC IN BLACK

The leaves are changing colour right now and I am so grateful because it makes an AMAZING backdrop to some fun new Fall looks! As Fall break continues, it is really hard to focus on my studies – especially when the weather is so great…not to mention cable TV (I don’t have cable at school…)

The little black dress is essential to have in your closet. Even though this is a rather short and summery LBD, the Fall season is not a good enough reason to put this little number into hibernation for the cold season. I try and transition all of my summer dresses as best as I can. Cardigans can be super tricky – the arms are too tight, or the body is too short…well I bring to you the worry-free “Clare Cardigan” by J.Crew (which is my new best friend). It is a great fit and comes in, like, every colour. Pearls are classic in every way and have been around forever. From Audrey Hepburn, to Jackie O, to Kate Middleton, pearls have been worn with class and true style. I adore the colour cognac and even more, I adore these boots. They are probably my favourite pair of boots this Fall season and I never get tired of rocking them with tights, dresses, skirts or pants!

This was a truly “pinspired” look because as I have seen it all over Pinterest. I have definitely put my own spin on it and made it my own (with the pearls, of course!). The pearls, the LBD, the heeled boots…all ingredients for a perfect outfit! I will never get tired of dressing up!

Cheers!
