You have just finished the endless holiday parties and now is the time to prepare for the New Year and all the parties and gatherings that come along with the celebration. From day outings with family, to evening cocktails after work, to nights out on the town with friends, we have you covered to look your very best for all of the New Year festivities.

Casual and Chic

If you are planning to go out and have fun with family or friends, layer your clothes and accessories. You can look like a million and still feel comfortable and casual. Layer clothing to stay warm and have the option to change your look as the day goes on.

Layered Casual Chic Look 1

  • Jeans
  • Tank or t-shirt
  • Wrap or v-neck sweater
  • Infinity scarf
  • Ankle boots
  • Hoop or dangle earrings
  • Bangle or cuff

A plain t-shirt can look great under a v-neck or wrap sweater, but if you would like to show a little sparkle for the season, try wearing a metallic top instead.

You can also wear the infinity scarf around your neck outside, but you can also wear as a shawl if you feel too hot with a sweater on. To top it off, choose fun earrings and bangles that draw attention, without looking too dressy.

Layered Casual Chic Look 2

  • Skinny pants or leggings
  • Long sleeve top
  • Cardigan or vest
  • Belt
  • Light scarf
  • Tall boots
  • Stud earrings
  • Statement ring

Tie your belt around your vest or cardigan to give you more of an hourglass look. Alternatively, you give the illusion of a smaller waistline by wearing your belt over your top and under the cardigan. If you would like to draw the eye away from your hip and waist, learn to tie your scarf in different artistic ways (sites like Pinterest is a great resource for scarf tutorials).

Fun and Flirty

A fun and flirty look is great for holiday and New Year parties with friends or even co-workers. Get a few key pieces that can work in any party setting. Whether you go to an evening out on the town, a club or a house party, you can easily change your look to suit the occasion.

  • Black slacks (or tuxedo pants)
  • Colorful satin top
  • Fitted velvet blazer
  • Velvet or satin heels
  • Clutch
  • Subtle earrings
  • Chunky ring

This is a luxurious look that also looks fun for the holidays. The mix of textures and subtle earrings work perfectly without looking overbearing. A statement ring (or statement clutch) will draw the eye to your hands, so make sure you have pretty manicured nails to show off!

  • Short sequined dress
  • Shawl or light bolero
  • Dangle earrings
  • Dainty bracelet
  • Strappy heels
  • Large clutch

A sequined dress is all about having fun and making a statement. You can choose a full sequined dress, or sequins combined with tulle or chiffon. Depending on the fabric you choose, try to find a shawl to match. Anything too different or too heavy will take attention away from your dress and give you an unpolished look.

Stick with more subtle or dainty jewelry to keep your outfit from looking over-the-top. If you want to change up and tone down your look, you can always thrown on a fitted blazer (choose satin for an ultra-feminine look). This is the best time to
