Bringing in the New Year

What a better way to start off the new year than with the launch of my new blog and a piece on New Year's Eve looks?  

Before the ball drops to bring in the new year we get one last fashion look of the year.  New Year's Eve is all about the glam, unlike other holiday's during the year.  This celebration calls for glitter, sequins, and metallics!

For a glam night out on the town I would go opt for a sparkly or sequin dress.  For some reason I always gravitate towards black clothing, maybe because it's sliming, and I am in love with this black Morris sequined cocktail dress from BCBGMAXAZRIA ($448).  For a more affordable dress, the Paillette Bodycon Dress from Forever 21 is a great option ($34.80).

For a dinner date or a night in with friends or family I would opt for a sweater dress paired with black tights and a pair of booties.  For new years I decided to rock the Keeley Zigzag Jacquard sweater dress from BCBGMAXAZRIA ($268).  As the dress was not sparkly or filled with sequins I paired this with big glamorous curls, a smokey eye, and nude lips.  I personally love sweater dresses as they are extremely comfortable but yet very stylish if paired with the right accessories.

How did everyone else spend their New Year's Eve and what looks did you wear?
