My Style: Tik Tok New Year's Eve

Today's Look:  celebrates lights, friends and family, and of course the New Year.  To welcome 2014 in, parties and gatherings are held across the globe.  Many girls ask:  what do I wear?  This post is to help answer that question.  New Year's Eve is all about celebrating and being a little crazy, so in my opinion, sequins are a must!  It's almost like a second Halloween, meaning you can have fun dressing up wilder than usual.  To start the look off, I chose a gold-sequined mini dress.  Gold reflects different colors while looking beautiful on its own.  Since it's winter, I couldn't just wear a mini dress and strappy heels or else I'd freeze.  For warmth and edge, I wore latticework printed tights, high heeled ankle boots, and a black leather jacket. Next, I wore an old party favor headband, featuring "Happy New Year" bedazzled in front of a bed of feathers, and a black sparkly mask to add mystery.  Finishing off the look, I wore big, tarnished-gold dangle earrings, two beautiful bracelets, and two tarnished-gold rings.

Outfit Details:  Dress from Arden B (Scottsdale, Arizona), Jacket from Express (Tucson, Arizona), Shoes from Charlotte Russe (Tucson Arizona), Tights by HUE at Dillard's (Prescott, Arizona), Earrings at Target (Prescott, Arizona), Mask from Earthbound Trading Co. (Flagstaff, Arizona), Rings from Aeropostale (Tucson, Arizona), Jewel Bracelet at Foot Fetish (Prescott, Arizona), Sparkly Bracelet is vintage, Happy New Year Headband was a gift at a party.

Fashion Tip:  For New Year's Eve, what the weather is like and where you'll be spending time during the festivities, meaning outside or inside, definitely help determine what to wear.  In my hometown, we have a tradition called "The Boot Drop."  Thousands of locals and tourists gather downtown to have a massive street party and to countdown till the New Year. At midnight, the lit-up boot drops and everyone cheers while fireworks fill the sky.  The only downside is the freezing night temperature. I suggest wearing high-heeled boots and a nice jacket along with something festive and sparkly.

  1. I'm totally head over heels for sequins! It's perfect for New Years! Agreed about New Years should be about going crazy and excited for a new year! The "Boot Drop" seems similar to the countdown except I guess we don't have lit-up boots dropping right? :) Happy New Year!xx

    1. Thank you so much for the comment, Nikkie! Yes, the "Boot Drop" is basically the same thing except it's done Prescott style. haha

      Hope you have a wonderful New Year!
