5, 4, 3, 2, 1 – HAPPY NEW YEAR! Not so fast, Fashionistas, it’s not that time quite yet even though New Year's Eve is right around the corner. The night leading up to 2011 is one of the most anticipated of the year, so it is imperative to look your best when the calendar changes. While you may already have your outfit for the evening’s festivities picked out, chances are you haven’t thought about what you’re going to wear that day. So, why not dress for day and night?
I spotted this Fashionista on my way to my last lecture of the semester (thank goodness!) and couldn’t help but stop her. New Year's Eve is all about standing out, usually in something shiny and sparkly. So, why not keep this mentality going all day long? For instance, her shimmery silver tank looks party-ready but when paired with this beautiful gray cardigan, it effortlessly transitions from day-to-night. To try this look out for yourself, try pairing this shimmery silk tank from Urban Outfitters with this fitted, gray cardigan from J.Crew. I also love this Fashionista’s bold necklace, which dresses up the outfit. Add this long, chunky beaded necklace from Forever 21 to bring your day time shimmer to a full on nighttime sparkle! During the day, pair this look with a medium wash jean and boots for a practical and cute yet casual feel. Then switch out your jeans for a darker, slimmer fitting pair and heels to bring your look to the “dark” side.
Hint: Another way to transition your New Year's look from day to night? Add a shimmery clutch such as this one from Forever 21!
