3 Easy Ways To Make Your Casual Outfit Glam for New Year’s Eve

Tomorrow is  New Years Eve and I’ve got nothing planned and I’m totally excited about it!  Normally I’m out and about at some party but this year has been a bit hectic (in a good way) and I’m staying in. That of course will not change a thing when it comes to getting all dressed up. I plan on throwing on some bling, some red lipstick and some cute flats (I can’t fit into heels for more than 20 minutes).  Below ares some simple ideas for those of you ringing in the New Year from the comfort of your home or the home of your loved ones.

 

Sequins: Try anything with sequins but I love me a sequin top and jeans.  Tip:  For a little layering affect get a slouchy top and leave little black or white tank peeking out from underneath.

Sequin Top from Victoria Secret | Hollister Jeans | Tassle Flats from Modcloth | Tank

Go Monochromatic: Pick a color (I prefer black, white or gray) and wear it from head to toe.  Not only is it super easy to throw together but it also has a slimming effect AND a expensive feel.

Add a Statement Necklace:  This is the easiest and fool proof way to dress up any outfit.  Wear your biggest boldest necklace over a turtleneck, with a button down or over simple white tee.  Tip: Look for necklaces with  mixture of bold and basic colors. This will give you more wiggle room when styling a casual outfit.

New Year’s Eve Chic On The Cheap

With the holiday spending spree over, it’s not hard to wonder which is gonna drop faster: the New Year’s Eve ball or your credit score!  So if you’re like me and spent a ton on gifts, check out these three tricks to look a million at midnight and ring in the New Year on the cheap:

Sparkles and glitter are SO girly and festive.  You can incorporate it into your outfit with shoes, skirts or accessories.  Tip: buy an inexpensive solid colored skirt and lightly spray glitter all over it (see my skirt and spray selection below)

Skirt – $30 at Chicwish.com

Glitter Heels  – $50 at Zara.com

Glitter Spray (I’ve used on clothes and it washes out easily) – $3 at Walmart.com

Tank Top – $10 at Walmart.com

Go all out with hair and makeup.  If you normally wear your hair pin straight, pull out your curling iron and vice versa.  The idea is to go for a striking change; the same goes for makeup…if you’re a basic lipgloss/mascara girl, pullout your eyeliner and line up a cat eye with some false eye lashes.

Add a little red.  Sure, it’s a bit of a cliche color around the holidays.  But, it’s actually the “it” color this season (red demands attention and exudes sexiness).  Try a sexy red dress and simple red heels or throw on a scarf or lipstick.  Tip: if wearing red from head to toe tone it down elsewhere.

Red Dress – $25 at Tobi.com

Heels – $48 at Modcloth.com

Necklace – $42 at Macys.com

Clutch – $21 at Sears.com
