New Year’s Eve is coming up fast. Are you ready to ring in another year? It’s time to bid adieu to 2021 and sing auld lang syne when the clock strikes twelve. Most likely, when midnight rolls around, I’ll be curled up in bed, but earlier in the evening, I’ll be dining with family to celebrate all the possibilities a new year brings. And, ahem, there’s a big football game I need to watch on the 31st, so I know we’ll rush home straight after the last bite of dessert!
If you’re looking for a little NYE inspiration, I have four different outfits today. From sequins to feathers to red pumps and a red dress. And if you would like to see the outfits in motion we put together an Instagram Reel.
Do any of you choose a word of the year? I was introduced to this concept several years ago, listening to Gretchen Rubin’s podcast Happier with Gretchen Rubin. It’s fun to mull over different words that encapsulate an entire year. Here are a few words for thought:
focus, grow, organize, thoughtful, deliberate, trust, fearless, grace, truth, serenity, vision, wisdom, sparkle, courage.
Outfit number 1 is a style formula I love to use. Pair a masculine item with a feminine item. It’s the yin and yang of fashion. A black cashmere turtleneck looks fantastic with a sequin skirt. Every girl should own one pair of red shoes. Maybe two!
New Year’s Eve Outfits continues with number 2 borrowed from the boys. Sequin joggers are back in action. Last time I wore them with a tuxedo blouse this time around I’m wearing a tuxedo jacket (old, similar here) that’s softened with a simple camisole (old, similar here) tucked underneath. Add a pair of sandals and I’m ready to roll into the new year.
Onto the next New Year’s Eve Outfits. A red dress (old, similar here and here) with a black overcoat (old, similar here) draped over the shoulders for drama. How easy is that style formula? Black pumps (old, similar here) and snazzy accessories keep this outfit fun and festive.
New Year’s Eve Outfits number four has a bit of drama with feather trimmed pants! They’re toned down with a simple ivory popover blouse, black sandals and a pink cashmere wrap that adds a pop of color.
