Christmas is over and done with, but the celebrating isn’t quite finished…
2019 is around the corner and like every new year, it’s starting off with the bang of New Year’s Eve. This is one of my favorite holidays as everyone is filled with new hope, excitement, and a few nerves when the clock strikes midnight on the new year. People are setting goals and resolutions, many of which will be lost by February, but it’s the thought that counts. Although, if I’m being honest is less of the feeling of the new year that excites me, but rather the outfits. People step out in style covered in all the glitter, sparkle, and shine that new year’s always seem to entail at first glimpse.
Today, I’m bringing you three of my, well, glitteriest, sparkliest, and shiniest outfits that are perfect inspiration for your own New Year’s Eve looks. Whether you’re going out to a party to dance the night away or watching fireworks from your front porch, these looks cater to it all. Also, they’re multi-temperature friendly, so whether you’re in a warmer or colder place, there is a look for you in here.
2019 is going to be all of our years, so let’s start it off on the right foot… or in this case the right outfit! 🙂
BLACK AND GOLD
First up is a typical New Year’s color combo of black and gold. I began by layering my fav metallic gold skirt over a thrifted black sequin tank dress. Since some New Year’s events are outdoors in the cold winter air, I threw on a rose gold jacket to prevent the lovely disease of frostbite from getting to my arms. However, it takes two seconds to whip off the jacket when getting hot from dancing :). To finish off the look in classic Olivia-style, I added the accessories of bedazzled fishnets, big rings, star earrings, and, of course, my signature bad b***h black boots. Dig out your own black and gold pieces for a perfect midnight match.
BUSINESS BLAZER, BUT MAKE IT SPARKLY
This second look is for those of you who want to participate in the New Year’s Eve glam without going too far out of your comfort zone. I grabbed a pair of my most basic jeans, threw on a snakeskin top (a print that is slowly becoming a staple in today’s wardrobe), and for the New Year sparkle layered a silver sequined blazer on top. I finished off this smart take on workwear look with, you guessed it, my black booties, big rings, and stand-out earrings. For a simple, yet breath-taking look of your own, wear your fav dark wash jeans and find a pop of glitter and shine to go with it!
UNICORNS CAN PARTY TOO
Last, but certainly not least, is my favorite outfit of the three. The form-fitting black-and-white mini dress made for a unique look, and pairing it with a rainbow turtleneck took the dress to a whole other level :). For accessories, I wore a rainbow belt, mismatched my earrings, added a few rings, and a chunky silver bracelet. For shoes, say it with me; my black boots! I felt radiant, confident, and ready to party well past midnight in this outfit, and that’s exactly how all of you should feel in your own New Year’s Eve outfits. You’re gonna kill it!
