As we bid adieu to yet another year and begin anew, New Year’s Eve inspires us to step out for the evening in our finest. Glamorous intentions often manifest in the seemingly-prerequisite sequin and sparkle mini dresses. For you gals hoping to start 2017 in a fresh fashion (aren’t we all?), luckily the style gods provided plenty of inspiration runway-side. Look no further than these trendy outfit ideas for this weekend’s NYE champagne toast (or kiss!).
Velvet has been an ubiquitous fabric this holiday season, making appearances on everything from ankle booties to bomber jackets. Amping up that popularity are It-Girls Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, adding in stylish crushed blue and red velvet pieces to their ensembles. Take a cue from these glamazons and make your velvet attire modern this weekend.
Designers defied seasonal stereotypes for the fall and winter, as moody flower motifs floated down runways at Dolce & Gabbana and more. Bring your feminine A-Game to NYE with romantic dark florals. Try marrying the print to the popular off-the-shoulder shape for a look that’s guaranteed to break a few hearts.
With the domination of bralettes at music festivals to high fashion pajamas on the Cannes red carpet, the lingerie as outerwear fever won’t slow in 2017. Whether that’s a Carrie Bradshaw-esque “naked dress”, or a tasteful corset under a sleek blazer, keep this trend minimalist for a sexy but modern approach.
Brighten up the room and stand out in some lighter hues this New Year’s Eve. Pink tones lifted up the typically somber fall and winter collections, while winter white is a staple in the cold weather months. Throw a nod to Bianca Jagger with a white suit, or get pretty in pink.
If you still pine for shine, look no further than metallic statement pieces to amp up your festive feel. Metallics can be incorporated into a variety of materials, from knits to leather, to offer a subtle shimmer. Pair a high-shine pant with strappy stilettos for an unexpected evening look, or go metallic all over for full luminosity.
