Nothing makes me dry heave harder than New Years’ Eve.
The fanfare. The overpriced cocktails. The crowds. The SWEAT. I am in full confidence that society’s NYE planning committee is compiled solely of extroverts.
That said, it is an excuse to show up somewhere over-dressed, champagne drunk and perpetually annoyed, which is how I spend most weekends, anyway. Below, I’ve compiled three NYE looks that I feel will serve you well for ~*the club*~, the house party, or even your parents’ basement.
Out on the Town: Feathers and Leather
I’m DEAD for this secondhand skirt find. I have short legs, which means I always go for a shorter hemline and skirts that can withstand a sweater tuck, as I find it helps with the proportions of the look, and doesn’t compete with the feathery statement this skirt makes.
The Dinner Party: Stacked Earrings and Suede
This will be the third winter I’m living in these over-the-knee Sam Edelman boots, and I’m not even a little sorry about it. I paired an old suede BCBG dress with a navy crewneck and black fur wrap, then finished it off with my favorite Lizzie Fortunato earrings I picked up from a Rent the Runway sale last fall — similar items linked in the Power Players section below!
The House Party: Tassels and Plaid
Is there anything I love in this world more than a wearable blanket? Plus, this one has armholes! I’ve linked a few similar picks, below. Paired with a navy peplum top (similars linked below), coated black moto pants, and leopard heels — I wore this last night and it kept me so, so toasty!
