NYE Style Guide 2015: Lace, Patterns, Metallics & Sequins

New Year's Eve is all about looking your best as you say goodbye to a year that will be no mas in only a few hours. Like the feeling you get when you run into your ex and you look amazing. That's how you want to feel all night.

There's the always faithful standby: a sequin dress. However, if you want your outfit to reflect the changes you'll be making in 2016, it never hurts to try something new.

Chic

Even though it's New Year's Eve that doesn't mean you have to cover yourself in sequins and metallics. Just like any day of the last 364, a well tailored garment is always in style. Don't fix it if it isn't broken, am I right? 

Find a neutral or bold color that speaks to you and pair it with a plunging neckline, mini length or a cutout. Pick one attribute to show off not all of them at once.

 

Lace

Lace brings romance and elegance to any outfit, which is why it's the perfect combination when you want to look your best on one of the most glamorous nights of the year.

When choosing lace details, opt for a garment with only certain areas that are lined. This allows you to show off your arms or back and rock a sexy but not too sexy vibe.

 

Metallic

Don't want to look like a disco ball, but you still want your outfit to stand out? Metallic fabric is the answer. Available in a multitude of hues, you're sure to find one that compliments your hair and skin tone.

If you do want to add a touch of sparkle, play up your accessories with chandelier earrings or giant studs.

 

Patterns

Sometimes you can't say enough with embellishments or a bold color, that's when you need the perfect floral or geometric textile.

 

Sequins

There's a reason you always need a sparkly dress in your closet even if you have nowhere to wear it. Sequins scream glamour like nothing else can. With so many choices, pick a color or combination unique to you.
