Now, if sequins and jumpsuits aren’t really your style, lets take a classic off the shoulder dress and and really glam it up for the end of the year. Who says you have to sacrifice the sparkle if you opt out of wearing sequins? This dress by Rachel Roy is the perfect way to truly shine as bright as the NYE fireworks while still keeping it simple and elegant! Now that you have the base, its time to add some accessories to truly stand out from the rest of the party.

Now if you want to just overdose on the glitz and sparkles, there is no better way than taking your stocking game to the next level! Take a look at these gorgeous periwinkle stockings custom jeweled by Jess Eul. Wearing this will truly make you outshine and firework show. Make sure if you are making this bold statement to pair this look up with a simple strapped sandal, there is no need to upstage your stockings. We recommend these simply stunning Stuart Weitzman sandals, keeping it minimal yet chic! Remember as long as your shoes, and hair are both on point, you can get away with wearing anything.

Well of course no look is ever complete without a major statement, and what better way than a bag! This is your moment to truly let your personality show. Like we always say, you can never own too many handbags!

As New Year’s Eve rolls into the scene, there’s no doubt that you’ll be out and about celebrating in all sorts of ways. If you’re planning on dressing to the nines and getting your groove on, you’re going to need a chic purse or clutch to carry all your necessities! If you’re feeling really festive, go for a sparkling or beaded option, or even the very on-trend velvet purse. If you want something classic, nothing’s better than basic black that you know will go with anything you decide to wear (and if you’re anything like me, your outfit will probably change at least five times before you’re out the door).

Whatever you choose, just know that you’ll be glad you planned out being able to have something hold all your things throughout the night. Why worry about where your things are when you’re busy celebrating?!

Remember NYE is all about having fun, make your own statement, use pop of color or an embellished top to showcase this new you! Living your best life, and creating everlasting memories with the people you love! So all in all, just be yourself and truly have the best night you possibly can.


Lastly, no matter what you decide to wear, just remember it’s not your clothes but you who will steel the spotlight!
