Have you left everything to the last minute again? NYE is just around the corner and maybe you haven’t even started shopping for your night out in the city. Stress no more, this shopping guide is your one stop check list for everything you’ll need!!
1) The Outfit
Deciding what to wear for New Years can be tricky, but it shouldn’t be. Figure out what you’ll be doing and this will be easier. If you’re going to a club or party, keep in mind that you should take advantage of the occasion and dress up a little.
These two dresses are great examples of what you could wear. The one on the left has amazing gold lace detailing and won’t need much work to get you ready for your night out. The one on the right is an all black sequin dress.. and you can’t go wrong with sequins on New Year’s. The only thing I would change about the black look is the tights, I’d pick a sheer black rather than the jet black the model is wearing. Both these dresses are from Le Chateau and can be bought on their website or in stores.
2) The Clutch
Let’s face it, NYE can get sloppy sometimes and we tend to get a little forgetful as the night goes on. Having a perfect clutch that will hold all your precious belongings is essential. If you’re wearing a solid colour from head to toe, pick out a clutch with some glitter, it will definitely spice up your look. The most important thing to remember when shopping for a clutch for New Year’s is to pick one out that has a crossover chain, so you don’t leave it sitting on a table somewhere. The one below is from Aldo, which has some amazing clutches in stores now!
3) The Lipstick
This one is easy, pick a great lipstick to throw in your clutch. Go for that bold red you’re usually afraid of wearing or that dark purple you wouldn’t dare to wear to work. It’s NYE and no one will be able to judge your choice in colour!
4) The Shoes
Maybe the most important of them all… what to wear on your feet! NYE is a LONG night, but if you’re like me, heels are the only answer. I’ve never been a fan of carrying a pair of flats in my purse and changing into them half way through the night either. Pick a comfortable heel from the start. If you’re living in a city that is covered in snow right now, it might work to your advantage. Try finding a heeled bootie that usually has a thicker (more comfortable) heel! But if you have a pair of heels you’re dying to wear that you bought 3 months ago and haven’t had to chance to wear yet, then check out my older post, Easy Steps to Painless Heels.
