I can’t believe 2017 is almost over! This year has gone by especially fast for me, as we’ve been non-stop preparing to start a brand new journey as parents to a little girl. While I certainly won’t be partying much this New Years Eve (the baby is due so soon!), I haven’t been able to resist checking out all the amazing cocktail attire online and in stores. There are so many gorgeous, unique options out there at this time of year. Today I’m sharing with you 5 of my favorite NYE trends for the last night of 2017 – and what I’d be wearing if I was heading out on the town!
5 NYE Outfit Ideas
1. Va Va Velvet
Velvet is such a staple for winter, but I especially love the way it looks as a cocktail dress. It’s such a rich material that it makes even the most simple silhouette look super glam.
2. All That Glitters
A sparkly New Years Eve look doesn’t have to be over-the-top. Try dressing down a metallic dress with simple black pumps, a pinned back hair style, natural makeup, and minimal jewelry.
3. Slip In To Something (Actually) Comfortable
Slip dresses are the epitome of an easy, breezy, yet put-together look. Try a bright color – like red, or a deep jewel tone – like emerald, to start the new year by standing out from the crowd.
4. Jump(suit) Around
Jumpsuits are a lesser known NYE staple, but if you live in a colder climate they can honestly be a godsend compared to a LBD. A long sleeved or wide-legged jumpsuit can be so understatedly sexy for New Years, and you’ll be super warm and cozy if you pair one with a faux fur coat.
5. Not Your Grandma’s Lace
Lace can be cheeky, classy and sexy all at once… all great attitudes to head into 2018 with! I love how this trend has a vintage vibe with a modern twist.
