New Year’s Eve dressing is the perfect time to take a chance on a big look – whether that means getting decked out in sequins or going for a more unusual color palette, like lavender. Even if you’re keeping it classic in black, you can always up the drama by mixing and matching textures like faux-fur, feathers, and velvet. The most important thing is that you ring in the New Year feeling like a million bucks.
What’s not to love about a party dress? Shine on in this ombre paillette sequin midi dress, or keep it a little more subtle with this feather-trimmed cream colored sweaterdress. This black, long-sleeved dress from Raey has a fun fringe element, which is a great way to fake a minidress. Velvet is an easy way to add texture, like this green Anthropologie dress.
Adding a sparkly top to your favorite black pants or jeans is an easy way to pump up the drama. Mango’s long-sleeved sequin t-shirt is easy to wear, and I love the red-brown color of this Whistles high-neck shirt. This silver shacket makes it easy to layer on a cold night, and this black crewneck tee is super flattering. I love this Kate Spade white sweater with the rhinestone bow detail, and this collared striped sequined J.Crew sweater would be just as fun with jeans as a skirt.
I’ve been very into skirts lately, because a midi-length is flattering but still femme. They’re super versatile too, whether you go for a Carrie Bradshaw worthy, raspberry colored tulle skirt or a straight-cut black sequin skirt. If you’re more into pants, then these sequined Mango palazzo pants are super fun.
If you want to keep the sparkle on the subtle side, an accessory is a great way to finish off an outfit. These Kate Spade loafers are a glittery gray, and topped with a black bow.
