Welcome to the season of champagne toasts and mistletoe kisses!
Whether you plan to celebrate New Year’s Eve at home with your loved ones, or your schedule is overloaded with holiday affairs, don’t let the party dress overwhelm you. There’s something out there for everyone to start the New Year out on the right note. New Year’s Eve is the biggest party night of the year! So, get ready to spice up your wardrobe by entering the New Year with a new look.
Fashion is a song. Fashion is a dance. Fashion is a story.
The good news is that the even not–so-glamorous party look can be glam-slam with the right accessories. What’s important is style! A figure-flattering frock is essential; whether it’s a long gown or a cocktail dress. And keep in mind, the lucky color for New Year 2017 is gold.
“Style is wearing an evening dress to McDonald’s, wearing heels to play football. It is personality, confidence and seduction.” —John Galliano
The most refreshing options this holiday season are dresses with playful details, enchanted embellished tulle frocks, maxi or mini with beaded flowers by NEEDLE & THREAD. These gorgeous dresses will make you shine without burning a hole in your pocket. Have the time of your life wearing a lace and crepe, sexy-modern midi number by SELF PORTRAIT. Off-the-shoulder options are still very popular for this holiday dress up game. MICHELLE MASON’s dresses are luxe and seductive, fitted perfectly to the female figure.
PATRICIA BONALDI’s dresses accented with lace, jewels, beads and embroidery feel especially right for a New Year’s Party, in every length, in rich green, gold or nude. It is true that every good party requires a little high-shine glamour.
“Gone with the Wind” elegant, statuesque gowns in rich silver or black silk by PETER HIDALGO are perfect for the holidays. A gown with an exaggerated collar, or shimmery festive cropped tuxedo silhouette by SADEEM is a charming idea, especially if paired with platforms or stilettos. These are classics, but with edgy and playful disco-ball encrustations on heels.
Our formula for the holiday style is to have fun. DIANA BROUSSARD’s jewelry and interesting accessories are just right: untraditional glass and metal chunky star chokers, plastic shiny video tech-bags, fresh out of the Paris runway.
“The most beautiful makeup for a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.” —Yves Saint Laurent
It’s important to understand your own character and style, but also how you wish to be perceived. So, I hope you got an idea, but in case you still haven’t figured it out, my personal favorite is a bejeweled knit wool maxi with an unbuttoned sleeve showing a sexy shoulder by Thornton Bregazzi for PREEN. Pair it with high-heeled booties and a disco ball clutch. Be sure to perfume your hair and the nape of your neck with my favorite scent, INDIGO by NEST fragrances, New York.
New Years Eve is all about taking a risk, so dare to wear something you have never worn before, and please remember —you only live once!
And if you’re wondering where the epic party going until dawn is in NYC? Head to the McKittrick Hotel for the Moulin Rouge party of the year on New Year’s Eve! Or rock it to the moon at the Time and Space 32,000 square feet Brooklyn bash warehouse, with two stages for music performances from Justin Martin and Kill Frenzy. Don’t worry if you don’t have anyone to French kiss when the clock strikes midnight. Dare to be extravagant and bold, and grab a stranger.
Let Bing Crosby’s song be your inspiration, “Let’s Start the New Year Right.”
