It’s hard to believe this year is coming to a close, but the promise of a hope-filled and fabulous new year has us welcoming 2019 with open arms. Although New Year’s Eve is one of the most anticipated days of the year, finding the perfect look to close out 2018 can be daunting. To help you pull together the perfect look, we’ve rounded up our favorite festive dresses, jumpsuits, blouses, accessories and, of course, metallic heels. These looks are meant to inspire your style for wherever the celebration takes you. So, shine bright, feel beautiful and raise a toast to 2019 in style. Here are our New Year’s Eve looks!
A dress is an easy, comfortable and fashionable option for New Year’s Eve. Whether you’re headed to that swanky hotel downtown, to a friend’s NYE soiree or to a sophisticated gala or concert, these three dresses are fantastic options. All three are figure-flattering and appropriate for the evening without being over the top. This gold dress, with fun scalloped sleeves, is $109.49. The red velvet dress, which is a gorgeous statement-making layering piece, is $148, and this long-sleeve sparkly number that’s versatile enough to wear to a number of events is $69.
If you’re more of a jumpsuit gal, we’ve rounded up two of our current favorites. Both of these, much like the dresses, are NYE-appropriate without being too much. Even better, these jumpsuits can be both dressed up or down depending on where you’re spending the evening. This gorgeous gold and black polka dot jumpsuit complete with a figure-flattering tie waist is $188, and this velvet jumpsuit with a unique square neckline is $188.
If you’re headed to a more casual celebration, but still want to feel festive and dolled up, a metallic or velvet top with black denim, a patterned skirt or some wide-leg trousers is an ultra-chic ensemble to pull together. Although pricey at $375, we are loving this FRAME tie-neck blouse. It is ideal for New Year’s Eve, but will quickly become your go-to for any upcoming festive affair. The one-shoulder velvet top, on the other hand, is more affordable at $98 and allows for a ton of creativity when pairing and layering. We suggest opting for a fun patterned skirt, like this leopard one, or some well-fitting trousers!
Now that we’ve got the outfit figured out, it’s time to move on to the heels. And what says “Happy New Year!” better than a pair of metallic heels?! We found three unique options to match any style preference. These black and silver Jeffery Campbell heels ($159.95) make a stunning statement, while these gold block heels ($118) are right on trend and a more comfortable, understated way to rock the metallic pump. Lastly, these strappy silver heels ($69.95) have a comfortable heel height and add the perfect touch of chic glam to your NYE ensemble.
A TOUCH OF GLAM
We’ve almost finished pulling together the complete look, but first we need to add those sparkling finishing touches! A festive statement-making New Year’s Eve outfit can be difficult to accessorize, but we’ve found four festive and fairly subdued options to complete your look.
If you’re in need of a statement necklace, this beaded style ($78) in a gorgeous gunmetal shade, hits at the perfect place on your neck. Or, if you’re looking to rock bold earrings, these beaded hoop drop earrings ($58) are available in myriad shades making them easy-to-style with your outfit. This rose gold clutch ($59), also available in silver, is a great way to get that pop of metallic fun. And, because every outfit needs a warm coat, we included this black jacket ($74.99) that looks fabulous atop literally any outfit and will carry you through the new year and beyond.
Cheers to a festive New Year’s Eve!
