A New Year’s Eve outfit is a terrible thing to waste. The items that you will be wearing on December 31 will also be the first items to be seen on the first day of the best year thus far of your life (in theory). And you don’t want to bring it home in the same ol’ thing – instead, keep these New Year’s Eve staples in mind when you’re planning where to bring the party for 2014.
1. Leather Shorts
Yes, it’s cold, but there are always ways around this – alcohol and possibly black tights. Pair them with sky-high black stilettos for a classic and edgy party look this year. These are a great way to show off your legs in the depths of winter when most people are trying to cover up they Christmas cookie weight.
Because really, how are you going to dance on elevated surfaces in a miniskirt? Instead, take advantage of the jumpsuit trend and keep warm and still look hot. Get one in a classic color, like red, white, or black, and pair it with some eye-catching jewelry and bag.
3. Classic Glitter Gown
You can’t go wrong with a classic glitter dress, this year and any year. However, if you do choose to invest in this trend, be sure to keep your hair and jewelry simple to avoid looking too over-the-top… even on New Year’s.
4. The Ladies’ Tuxedo
Suits aren’t just for men! Take this modern trend to New Year’s Eve with a fitted black and white tuxedo. Keep it feminine with bright and glittery jewelry, black stilettos, and a flawless hair-down style.
5. Leather Skirt
If you choose to go with the leather skirt, be sure to go with a pleated, slightly longer style and pair with a fitting or crop top shirt in another neutral color.
