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!
