It's Never Too Early for New Year's...

Okay, it's true. We still have about 4 weeks until New Year's Eve. But it is definitely my favorite holiday to dress up for, so I'm already looking for ideas. Here is one of my ideas for an outfit. I may end up doing a makeup/hair video tutorial to go with it also. Stay tuned for that and other ideas! And Click "Read More" below to see more about this outfit. 

When it comes to New Year’s Eve, everyone has a different style in mind. If I go out for the holiday, my goal is to always have glitter and sparkles with my outfit. Many stores like Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, H&M and other stores will soon have plenty of items set out just for New Year’s Eve. If you want a sparkly outfit, try not to go overboard. Too much glitter or bedazzlement can go wrong. Stick to one statement piece with glitter and work around it. 

For example, for this outfit I chose a gold, shimmery top, but paired it with simple black skinny jeans and heels. The top and black pants came from Forever 21 and the heels are from Charlotte Russe.

Another idea: if you like the idea of glittery shorts, pair them with plain black tights and a neutral top.  

If you want your whole outfit to be a statement, like with a shimmery or glittery dress, try wearing it with black or nude heels and a black jacket. You still have the “wow” factor with the dress, but the neutral pieces keep you from trying too hard. Besides, a jacket, tights or pants will be needed on such a cold night.

Whatever you choose to wear, own it and shine bright <3
