Champagne towers, sparklers & the countdown to Midnight- plus a fabulous outfit: It’s nearly time to welcome the New Year.
After the busyness of the holiday season with its multiple soirees and cocktails my fashion inspiration needs a bit of a reboot. New Years Eve calls for glitz and glamour. While I’m as fond of glitter and metallic as the next gal, this time I chose luxurious black velvet. This bustier dress is as comfortable as it is sexy with its structured bodice that fits like a glove. There’s something so rich about velvet and a cocktail dress is flirtation in a piece of cloth: perfectly encapturing all that New Year’s Eve is about. No matter what the party attire, a statement coat is absolutely a must. This green wrap coat is from Anthropologie a few seasons back, but any decorative coat would turn heads. Add some fun shoes, mine are patent leather from Stuart Weitzman (borrowed from my mother who has impeccable taste & identical shoe size). Above all New Years attire is about revelry- celebrating the end & the beginning in a single moment of kisses & fireworks. So dress up to the nines & raise a glass!
