Christmas is getting close, and of course New Year’s Eve is right behind it, so Cyndi Spivey and I are teaming up for one last style collab of 2021 to share some NYE fashion inspiration!
We almost always celebrate New Year’s Eve at home, either by hosting a small get-together with friends or attending one nearby. So while I tend to conjure up visions of sequins and glitter when I think of New Year’s Eve style, my actual NYE outfits are usually more subdued.
I’ve long been a fan of wearing bold colored pumps with a cozy sweater and jeans, and this look is perfect for casual parties this holiday season. I just received these gorgeous burgundy suede pumps from Evereve, and I love how they pop a neutral outfit.
This sweater is really soft and cozy, and I love the shaker knit with raglan shoulders and extra long sleeves. It runs true to size.
The washed black skinny jeans are the perfect complement to the oatmeal-colored sweater. Just add a metallic clutch and blingy earrings, and you’ve got a festive outfit that’s also warm and comfortable.
If you’re going out to diner, or your dress code is more formal, the same pumps look great with a black dress.
This dress is pretty simple. The knit is really soft and drapes nicely, and the tie at the waist adds interest and helps define the waist.
Here’s a close-up of those shoes. Aren’t they such a great color!? They’re the Sam Edelman Hazel Pumps that I’ve been wearing for years. I think I have them in at least five colors. They’re remarkably comfortable for pumps, and they run true to size.
I pushed the sleeves up a little so they look more like 3/4 sleeves, which is generally more flattering and feminine than letting them extend to the wrist. It’s something about drawing the eye to the waist.
This dress can be dressed down for more casual venues, but I really love how this dressy NYE party look came together.
And for those who do like some glitter on NYE, here are a couple more outfits I’ve styled this season that would work well for a New Year’s Eve celebration.
Now be sure to visit Cyndi and see the New Year’s Eve looks she’s styling today!
And I’d love to know, what are your plans for NYE? Do you like to party, get together with a small group of friends or family, or stay in and watch the ball drop on TV? And if you say you’ll be turning in before midnight, I’ll never tell!
