So there’s less than 24 hours until New Years Eve and I have some last minute styling ideas for pretty much any celebration. Sure, it’s a bit last minute and it’s impossible to order these things (maybe technology can work on that), but that won’t stop the inspiration. I’ve styled 3 looks one with a dress (my favorite), one with pants, and one with a playsuit. I have even paired each look with one polish from Essie’s winter collection just to tie everything together.
This is my favorite look of the bunch, and I’m not even really a dress person. They just don’t look right with my hips. That said, I would trade in my joggers and jumper for this outfit for any outing tomorrow in a heartbeat. It contains many non-budget friendly items, but again, it’s my dream look so I went big with this one.
Markus Lupfer dress, Kurt Geiger heels, Saint Laurent Sac de Jour, Eddie Borgo ring, Marc Jacobs safety pin bracelet, Burberry leather jacket
Pair with: Tuck in My Tux
This is a more relaxed but sparkly look. I would also combine this with a nice peacoat to keep warm. I absolutely love the sparkly top from Topshop despite it being rather out of my comfort zone. Yes, I featured the Eddie Borgo ring & Marc Jacobs bracelet again with this look but simply because I just love them both so much and they seemed to fit well with the color of the Aldo heels.
Topshop sparkle top, Topshop high rise skinny jeans, ALDO heels, Eddie Borgo ring, Marc Jacobs safety pin bracelet, Zara handbag
Pair with: Double Breasted Jacket
What? A playsuit in winter? Well, yes. If I was attending say a houseparty or dining at a restaurant or, dare I say, going to a nightclub, I might choose a playsuit over a dress. It’s probably not the greatest idea for say…the Mill Avenue block party or hanging out in Times Square. To get more warmth I might suggest some black tights (or exchange this for a longer less flattering long playsuit)
and a white jacket/blazer. The shoes are the real stunner of this look and even then tights may draw more attention to them.
New Look playsuit, Topshop heels, Saint Laurent clutch, H&M silver necklace
Pair with: Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low which seems to no longer be available online so check in stores.
