If there’s one occasion all year long that I can justify getting dressed up for, it’s New Year’s Eve. Even if I’m only attending a casual home party with friends for NYE, I like to wear a New Year’s Eve party outfit that’s a little extra special.
My favorite way to do extra special is to dress up a great pair of jeans with heels and a sparkly top, and today I’m teaming up with Lucky Brand to share a fun New Year’s Eve out-on-the-town look.
This outfit pretty much meets all of my criteria. I like how it’s dressed-up without being dressy. The raw hem on the jeans gives the look a bit of toughness, and the sequins on the top make it festive.
I ordered this embellished sleeveless top in both a small and a medium, and I discovered that I’m in between sizes, so I’m wearing the medium. I like how it’s figure flattering without being body-con so you can be comfortable all night long and eat whatever you like. (And all the ladies said, amen!)
These high rise skinnies have a 10″ rise, so they hold everything in, and they’re also flattering to the rear view. They have distressed detailing in places without any gaping holes, so you get that rugged look without rips and tears, in case you don’t care for that look. If you really wanted to go all out, you could pair this top with their leather legging jeans.
I have a couple pairs of Lucky Brand boots, but I’ve never had any of their heels so I was excited to try them. These suede pumps with their cut-out sides, ankle strap, and a stacked stiletto heel are the perfect blend of sophisticated and edgy. I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of these. I feel like they’re more modern than a classic pump, so they’re perfect for more casual outfits when you still want the benefit of a stiletto.
Finally, I accessorized with their mother of pearl layer bracelet, and for added bling, I wore my tribal earrings. They’re no longer available, but I think these floral drop earrings or the marcasite fringe earrings would work nicely with this outfit.
If it’s not too terribly cold out, I’d throw on a leather jacket to complete this look, and if it’s a frigid night, I’d just bundle up in my favorite puffer coat and check it when I get where I’m going. Another festive option would be a velvet blazer.
I feel like you could wear this outfit pretty much anywhere you may be planning to go on New Year’s Eve because it’s the perfect combination of comfortable and fancy.
I hope everyone is staying afloat and getting everything done they need to get done! This time of year is so crazy. I really enjoyed hearing your Christmas dinner plans yesterday.
I’m planning to do a Q&A on the blog this weekend, so start sending in your questions! You can ask me about anything… fashion, diet, business, marriage, parenting, whatever! I’ll do my best to answer them all. Leave your questions a comment, and I’ll compile them all into a blog post and answer them this weekend.
Have a great Christmas Eve Eve Eve!
