New Year's Eve Parties: What to Wear

3 years ago

My bad, my bad.  I know I've been busy, but this is no excuse for leaving you hanging on what to wear for the  holiday parties.  I've discussed hairstyles (on here and on and  Naturalhairrules!!!) and even discussed makeup.  What I DIDN'T seem to discuss was what the heck to wear.  Again, I am truly sorry, but I promise you I am going to make up for it. This post is kinda long with pics and info so sit back, enjoy your day, and let's get this show on the road!

Glitz and Glam
There is nothing more fun than dressing up.  I mean, how often do you have the chance to really get all dolled up and sparkle?  Not often for most of us, so when we decide to do it we do it up right.


From the  Fashion Bomb Daily we have a gorgeous and glammed style that is perfect for New Year's Eve.  Shimmer meets classic is what this outfit says, and what it says even more is the ability to replicate this outfit with not even a lot of work!  I'm sure most of us have at least one of these pieces at home that never sees the light of day. Feel all eyes on you with the  satin camisole and  strappy pair of heels to the  pearl décor hard box evening clutch, and Asos Double Knuckle Ring set.  What I like most about this outfit is the price for many of the pieces.  Yes, some are pricey, but most like the  camisole, skirt and shoes are reasonable for such attire.  

Black and Gold
Not everyone likes dresses or even skirts, but that doesn't mean you can't be party-ready with the best of them.   rockreborn has put together a black and gold outfit just for you.



Every single piece is affordable or easy to replicate. I mean the most expensive piece in this ensemble is $40 outside of that necklace, but a great piece of costume jewelry can replace it.

Day to Night
 Nothing better than a holiday party outfit than one that can have two uses. Many parties are happening after work, and if you don't have the time to run home and put on something else, the best way is to wear an outfit that can be appropriate for work and play.    melindairenes really put this style together well. 


This outfit is my favorite, and I am no fan of leopard print or gold but the simplicity of the classic look is drawing me to it and I love a classic style. 

Now, the price of that coat is ridiculous, but don't fret because it's a classic black trench coat would suffice.  Calvin Klein has one right now at $49 and can be found at a few different places, but if you are like me then you already have a  black trench coat in your closet.  The strappy heels and that bag are easy to replicate as well for way less, so don't fret on that, either.  Hit upForever 21 or Target.  

Pop of color
Many don't realize that you do not have to stick to just black, silver or red for the holidays.  You can add some vivid color to make you and your personality pop.   melindairenes has done it again with this haute number.


Remember you can replicate this outfit on your own.  Many of us have these items already in our closets.  Chose the color you want to bring to this outfit, and again, if you don't have that color for the coat a black trench will do.  The shoes, belt and bag will still give this outfit all the pop it needs, and don't forget the accessories!  The last two dresses can be found for $29 at

The point of this post was more than just outfits for the holiday parties but that the  little black dress is always a winner but not always the ONLY winner. These lovely sets will bring shimmer, class, style, and flair to you and your holiday event, so hit that closet, the mall or your local Target for the look you want to wear.  

Enjoy the parties,
