Holy cow we are starting a new DECADE in just a few short weeks… it hasn’t really hit me yet. I’ve been so crazy busy these last couple weeks trying to get everything sorted before I go to Europe for Christmas that I’ve barely been able to think about the new year, not to mention New Year’s Eve. Most years I will spend my time celebrating the start of a new year at a quiet house party, last year I went to a holiday party at a hotel in the city but this year I’m very excited to be spending time with amazing friends at a concert. However, you might be celebrating I’ve got some glamorous outfit ideas for you.
Cocktail Party Outfits
As I mentioned, last year I wanted the go all out and attend a holiday party at a swanky hotel. So many years I went to a house party with a few friends we watched the ball drop and then I was in bed around 12:15. But last year I had moved to Chicago and wanted to go all out. Chicago has so many different holiday parties at hotels, and bars all over the city and everyone dresses to the nines. So of course for a cool hotel party outfit, I will always suggest sequins. Step into that bar and light up the room. You can’t go wrong with something like this beautiful ModCloth dress. They have tons of dresses with a wide range of glitz. I also love a cool jumpsuit or velvet dress for the season. I love a beautiful long sleeve with a plunging neckline for something a little sexier.
If you’re like me and love live music a concert is a really fun way to ring in the new year. Since it’s a little less formal than a holiday party at a hotel dressing up in sequins can feel like a bit of overkill. I love pairing a cute skater dress with a pair of tights and sneakers, or if you still want some sparkle a glitter top with a leather skirt or pencil skirt is a great rocker vibe. You also can’t go wrong with a bodysuit and a fun skirt or even jeans.
Lowkey House Party Look
Finally the house party. Who doesn’t want to be as comfortable as possible? But if it’s not your living room you might not be as comfortable showing up in your PJs. That’s why I think a midi sweater dress is the perfect comfy look for a cozy night in with friends. Throw on some tights with booties and you’re ready to go. I also love a cute cropped chunky sweater with jeans and cozy socks for champagne on the couch.
Whether you’re on the couch, at a lively house party, or a concert like I will be I hope you have an incredible start to your new year. Rock those sequins if you want and ring in the new year in style. What are your plans for New Year’s Eve?
