Three Looks For New Year's Eve Style

Hurrah lovelies! We're only two sleeps away from New Year's Eve festivities. This also means we're just two sleeps away from mass "I have nothing to wear" hysteria. Before the panic ensues, here are a few ideas to inspire the ultimate look to ring in 2012 no matter where you'll be celebrating.

Scene #1: Club Dance Party
Rather than going for a traditional cocktail dress, try something you can really move in like this cowl neck sequinned romper from French Connection.  I fell in love with this piece a few weeks ago while Christmas shopping and it was on sale! Consider adding a contrasting skinny metallic belt to amp up the shine factor or opt for sparkly shorts if you're a fan of separates vs. all-in-ones. 

Scene #2: Grand Ballroom
A more formal affair calls for a full length gown, but who wants to splurge on a dress you probably won't wear again in the new year? Try a rental, like this violet Badgley Mischka dress complete with a stunning macrame cinch from Rent Frock Repeat. It rents for just $150 and you can visit their Roncesvalles area studio to try on in person through til 4 PM on December 31st.

Scene #3: Your Living Room
Entertaining at home calls for comfortable style that doesn't break the bank. Try a free flowing cocktail dress like this silver pleated frock from Forever 21. Wear it tunic style over leggings with heels or top with a soft cardi and ballet flats for a relaxed but polished look.
Above all, go for an outfit that makes you feel confident and gorgeous. You want to spend the night celebrating, not worrying about a wardrobe malfunction. Cheers to finding the perfect look and to having a fabulous New Years Eve!
