New Year’s Eve Look

New Year’s Eve is fast approaching and don’t have anything to wear? While metallics are a tried-and-true New Year’s Eve uniform, I like to go for something unexpected. Black lace is a fresh, sexy fabric perfect for ringing in 2013.

If a casual night in is in the works, go for luxe materials in comfortable silhouettes. Exaggerated harem pants are quite a statement, but in matte black lace, they read chic and down to earth. Throw on a simple cashmere sweater in matching black for a soft and cozy, yet party-appropriate look. Finish it off with bright pink (and very sexy) heels to add a little extra NYE flair.

For a night out, you can’t go wrong with a body-con silhouette, but mix it up with an eye-catching accesorize. A LBD takes on a whole new personality when paired with bright, playful accessories.
