What To Wear To: New Year's (That Doesn't Involve Sequins)

December 19, 2008 by Bryn

Maybe it's the sparkle of the ball dropping, or the stars you see when you hit the pavement after taking a drunken nosedive, but for some reason, everyone associates New Year's with sequins. Which is completely fine, but there are other options for dressing up on December 31st that can make you stand out without having to reflect the light around you.  

Lace is a refreshing option when getting dressed up to have too many cocktails and kiss random strangers. Picking a metallic lace is even better to keep from looking too conservative. Pair with a cropped leather blazer to create a downtown appeal – just make sure it's a soft leather that can breathe and move while you work the room. Tonight is the night that jewelry can be a bit bigger and bolder, so go for a large pendant necklace and a flashy cocktail ring (this is where you can sparkle). Shoes should be edgy but not the focus of your outfit. Black with some fringe detail is a wise decision. Finally, pick a clutch that complements the ensemble but doesn't bore. Something with a metallic or jewelled detail will work wonders.
