Christmas has officially passed (NOOOOOO), so it’s time to start thinking about what to wear on New Year’s Eve! If you’re like me, thinking of anything past Christmas time makes you feel depressed. Which means I left my NYE outfit until the last minute. The key to dressing for NYE is this: keep it simple and elegant. Having too may moving pieces overcomplicates your outfit and will most likely stress you out when planning the perfect ensemble. My favorite inspirations this NYE are blush, metallics, and velvet. Mixing these elements is so easy and will create an easy and stylish look. I love the idea of a monochromatic look by combining these velvet shoes (#1 below), this metallic blush dress (#2 below) and these star drop earrings (#4 below). Just add a faux fur jacket and you are instantly the chicest person at the party!
