Did you know that Kirsty and I partner on blog posts from states away? (We’re separated by Oregon). It’s infrequent that we actually get to spend time together, instead of trading our usual texts and emails. The past couple of years we have reunited over the holidays – typically around New Year’s. Therefore, we thought it only fitting that we should share a New Year’s Eve-inspired post to get you “stylishly prepared” for your celebration, whatever that may include.
And…you still have time to order your festive attire in time for NYE without incurring extra shipping costs. So now that your Christmas shopping is checked-off, let’s get started!
Sequin Pants (Jenn)
Although these pants are a jogger (read: “sweatpant-like silhouette”), the sequins inherently elevate them to fancy attire. With the addition of a few special accessories, like the red shoes, metallic clutch, and oversized, gem-stone earrings, this look is entirely party-ready. However, don’t reserve your sequins only for the holidays! I’ve worn these pants with a simple white tee and wedge sneakers for a downtown cool, yet casual look. I love sequins 365 days a year!

Lace Dress (Kirsty)
This might be cheating a little bit because I just posted about this dress and its party appropriateness; however, I love it so much I’m gonna talk about it again. Adding lace to your little party dress adds so much more personality and interest. It’s vintage flare makes it special and lace is always more flattering, helping to camouflage flaws (say that 5 times fast – there’s your NYE drinking game, if you are into that kind of stuff, of course).

Metallic Dress (Jenn)
Nothing says that you’re ready to ring in the New Year like a metallic dress. The style of this dress is so simple and chic, yet festive. I’ve added some color with the red lip and shoe (clearly a wardrobe favorite!). Meanwhile, I’ve kept my other accessories in the same grey and metallic tone; allowing the dress to take center stage. The tweed metallic texture of the dress is even reminiscent of the sparkle of champagne.

Cheers to your special celebration! Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year!
As always, thanks for reading! ~Kirsty & Jenn
