New Year’s Eve is coming up fast. Are you ready to ring in another year? I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone, honestly. I've said that pretty consistently throughout the year because it's just true: it feels like just yesterday that we were ringing in 2021. So keeping in the holiday spirit, I'm sharing 4 New Year's Outfits to help you plan your wardrobe.
Last week, I shared 4 ways to up your holiday outfit game. In many ways, this is just an extension of that post. But I couldn't resist: there aren't that many times during the year when I can showcase sequins, rhinestones, and the like. So, let's get right to it.
Today, I'm sharing 4 New Year's Outfits updated for 2022
The outfits are inspiration, but I've put together similars, all shoppable via text- and image-widgets
I've also pulled in 5 of my favorite NYE party shoes
And finally, I'm sharing a Christmas memory at the end of this post. So don't forget to scroll to the end
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. I’m wearing a tuxedo jacket that’s softened with a simple camisole (but also try a silk blouse) 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 with a black overcoat draped over the shoulders for drama. How easy is that style formula? Black pumps 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 silk blouse, black sandals, and a cashmere wrap that adds a pop of color.
It’s time to sparkle and shine. NYE is headed our way. Let’s take a look at Party Shoes.
A favorite Christmas memory dates back to 1968. That was the year Peggy Fleming won the Gold medal in Women’s Figure Skating. I had seen her compete in 1967 at Ak-Sar-Ben (Nebraska spelled backward) a venue that held livestock shoes, ice skating events, concerts, and rodeos.
Needless to say, the world and I were crazy about Peggy and figure skating. So Christmas 1968 found me waking up to my own ice skating rink my mom, dad, and great uncle put together on a cold and snowy Christmas Eve. It was magical! I had my very own fur-trimmed ice skates, winter coat with a fur-trimmed hood, and toasty warm snow pants. And I could skate to my heart's content!
My family all took turns on our homemade ice rink, twirling and swirling and having a ball. Afterward, we headed inside to warm up with a cup of hot chocolate loaded with whipped cream. It's a sweet memory of my family as I can vividly see each one of us as if it were yesterday.
