2018 is dwindling down and we are getting ready to ring in the new year! It’s important to start the new year looking and feeling good.
To prep for 2019, we have compiled a list of some ideas to consider when planning your show-stopping outfit for New Year’s Eve! Whether you are going to a big party or enjoying watching the ball drop from the comfort of your couch, there is no reason not to dress to the nines that night!
Sparkle - Sequins and glitter always are acceptable on December 31st. A fun sparkly dress has become a staple for NYE fashion. Maybe you don’t normally like to dress in sparkles, but this is one night of the year that dressing up with some shimmer is a great addition to the bubbly in your hand, too! If you are looking for a flashy sequins dress, check out places like Express or Tobi.
Metallic - Not only can you catch attention at an NYE party in sparkles, but you could shine in metallic instead. You can be sleek and shiny in metallic bodycon dresses, skirts, or bodysuits. Right now, stores like Forever 21 and Topshop have tons of metallic options.
Leather Pants - Maybe you don’t want to pop too much, but you still want to elevate your usual look. Leather has been a big trend this winter, and New Year’s Eve is no excuse to stop that. Consider a pair of slim black leather pants with a neutral top and black jacket. This look is classic, stylish, and also perfect for chilly weather. H&M, Forever 21, ASOS, and tons of other stores have lots of faux leather pants and leggings in stock right now.
Little Black Dress - Let’s be honest, an LBD is always the perfect go-to outfit for any event. This is classic and definitely worth the purchase. The good news with an LBD is that they can be multipurpose for other events so you won’t feel as guilty dropping a little extra cash on one of them. Don’t be afraid to try out different lengths and necklines. Currently, Lulus has many unique options to work well for all body shapes at a variety of price points.
New Year’s Eve is right around the corner, and it is super easy to get swept up in holiday events that you forget to go out in time to get what you want. So when you are looking to find the perfect Insta-worthy outfit to start off 2019, be sure to try out some of these ideas!
