No one wants to start 2013 looking anything less than their best. So make sure you catch the attention of everyone in the room with one of these attractive styles.
There are occasions in life that require you to reach for more demure attire to be more appropriately dressed, but New Year’s is not one of them! New Year’s is a time to shimmer and shine from head to toe, so seize the opportunity! This cap-sleeve shimmer dress is sure to make jaws drop (guess.ca, $89). Or if you want something even more modern and edgy, check out this navy glitter dress (guess.ca, $98).
If you’re going to a more low-key affair this year, you may be disappointed that you can’t dress up as much as you would if you were going to an elegant soiree. But don’t despair! There are some great tops out there that will have you feel every bit as elegant as if you were wearing a full-length gown. The dramatic neck on this halter neck applique top will make a bold statement, while the stark white colour will make you stand out among the crowd of muted winter tones (zara.com, $70).
Whether you’re wearing jeans and a T-shirt or a full-length ball gown, jewellery always adds the perfect finishing touch. And New Year’s Eve is the perfect excuse to go all out in terms of dressing up your ears, wrists and decolletage. A long pendant such as this gold leaf necklace will add something special to an otherwise plain ensemble (etsy.com, $27). Or if your outfit has a wide, open neck, consider something as dramatic as this gold metallic piece (aldoshoes.com, $20). And if you prefer to dress up your look with earrings, don’t shy away from captivating pieces such as these teardrop filigree earrings (forever21.com, $6). It’s so easy to make your look dazzle with jewellery, so have fun with it!
No New Year’s look is complete without a stylish pair of shoes. Metallic tones are a great option because they’ll make a bold statement on the actual night, and their versatility will ensure they come in handy down the road. These metallic stilettos will make a sexy and sophisticated addition to your New Year’s ensemble (aldoshoes.com, $49). Or if you’re planning on partying hard and don’t think you can bear wearing heels the whole night, these glitter flats will add a fun flair to your look (ninewest.ca, $88).
